Vacation Bible Camp

We are working hard to put together a fun-filled week of interactive storytelling, activities and worship for our youth (with some exciting guests!). The only requirement is that we show up with an open heart and mind as we dive into Stories of the Saints, focusing primarily on saints of color, women and saints we have up around our church. As a parish we continue to look for opportunities to engage in anti-racism work through the art of listening, reflecting and acting. As St. Katharine Drexel shared, “Have a cordial respect for others in heart and mind; if there is any prejudice in the mind we must uproot it, or it will tear us down.” We will hear stories of inspiration and acts of kindness and inclusivity that we hope will empower our youth.

Vacation Bible Camp will happen week of August 10-14. There will be a live session each day from 9:00-9:30am. Vacation Bible Camp is open to youth of all ages!
