Don’t you enjoy watching kids’ faces light up as they sing a song about their faith? Help us do that! Embark on an over-the-top underground adventure that will light their way!

This summer, from July 5
th to July 15th, Immaculate Heart of Mary presents our 10th Annual Vacation Bible School—Cave Quest: Following Jesus, the Light of the World. We’ll be grounding kids in the rock-solid foundation of God’s love, a love that takes us through life’s dark times.

But Vacation Bible School (VBS) needs volunteers to make it work, not just in our music program, but in all our stations. We’re looking for adults and teenagers who are enthusiastic about working with children, patient and kind. Most volunteers don’t really have to prepare anything, you just show up each morning, and you’re home in time for lunch. What’s important is your willingness to be someone’s friend and helper; to draw others into singing and dancing as much as possible; and to encourage each other to a higher level of participation, both in VBS and in our liturgies.

Sharing with our children and reinforcing in ourselves the joy of music enhances the sung worship of our parish community. It also perpetuates the future of our parish and strengthens our “full and active participation”.

If you’ve helped with VBS before, how about recruiting a friend to join us? Accept the challenge to find just one person willing to give it a try! If each current volunteer found just one new helper, we’d double in size! If you think you or anyone you know can give any time to VBS, please attend a Volunteer Meeting this Thursday, May 26
th at 7:00 PM in the Marian Center. And if you can’t make the meeting, please contact myself, Linda Gaglia or Sr. Mary Ann. Remember, YOU make VBS work!
