Vacation Bible School in the Diocese of Hamilton

Vacation Bible School or VBS has been taking place at more and more Catholic parishes around the diocese every summer. Programs run for one week and include songs, bible stories, stories of saints and more! Themes vary widely so while some children are learning that God is our Mighty Fortress, others are focusing on the disciples’ call to be EarthKeepers and still others are taking a Radical Ride on the Wings of Prayer. So many creative, great ways to share the treasures of our faith! Crafts, outdoor games and snack time complete the fun and learning.

A big shout-out and thanks to all the pastors, parish ministers, youth ministers and volunteers across the diocese who make these engaging times of learning possible for our young people.

Parents – did you miss out on VBS this summer? Check your parish bulletin or website to mark the dates for next year!
