Fifty-five parish children have been having a blast at "Adventures on Promise Island" Vacation Bible School this week!  Through bible story re-enactment, games, songs and crafts centered on a daily theme, they have learned that:
  • God is with them
  • God cares about them
  • God gives them what they need
  • God will save them
  • God answers them
Good reminders for all of us!
