Don’t you enjoy watching kids’ faces light up as they sing songs about their faith? Help us do that! This summer, from July 10
th to July 21st, Immaculate Heart of Mary presents our 11th Annual Vacation Bible School — Maker Fun Factory: Created by God, Built for a Purpose. We’ll explore a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they're lovingly crafted by God.

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? If you think you or anyone you know can give any time to VBS, please contact myself, Linda Gaglia or Sr. Mary Ann before the VIRTUS class on June 7
th. Remember, YOU make VBS work!
