The experience that stays with them for a lifetime!!
We have enjoyed another year of Totally Catholic Vacation Bible School here at St. Brendan's Church. The children like it so much that they come back year after year - and when they are old enough they graduate to “Counselors" to help with the younger children. Sometimes the counselors come back even when they are in college! It is a blessing to assist the children experience the Bible as the stories are dramatized. They participate in the action, becoming actors themselves ~~ and this helps the Bible come to life for them. Although there are different segments to the VBS morning, most of the children really enjoy the drama segment which we are involved with and look forward to it each day. We delight in acting out the parts and seeing the crews' faces light up at different moments. What more important Book is there? It is the Love Letter from Our Heavenly Father - and we have the privilege of guiding the children through it. When our 7th grade CCD girls are asked about the prophets, a lot of them remember the stories from their VBS days. Many VBS graduates have said that their times were so enjoyable and memorable.
We post events, news and reflections in this section of our site and be sure to come back regularly for updates.
TO ADORE OUR LORD!
The Franciscan Handmaids of the Immaculate seek daily to draw closer to Our Lord. Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament is fundamental to Our spiritual life as we seek to conform our hearts unto His. Additionally, praying the Liturgy of the Hours, the rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Sorrows, we place ourselves in the Immaculate Heart of Mary, asking Her to bring us closer to Her Son.
