Another successful Vacation Bible School was held at St. Mary’s Parish the week of June 28th –June 30th.  The theme this year was “Wild about Jesus” with an emphasis on “Vocations.” This past year was the Year Of The Priests in the Catholic Church and the children chose to honor Father Richard Haldane (shown above) at the Mass on Wednesday with a generous gift from their piggy banks.  A huge thank you goes out to all those adults, teen leaders and participants who helped in any way to make this an awesome VBS.  Looking forward to next year.
