Susan Lawson of Growing with the Saints wrote me to tell of their Catholic Vacation Bible School Programs. For any of you involved in planning Vacation Bible Schools, this looks like a program well worth looking into.
These are the three programs that they currently offer:
Assorted Saints & Virtues of Faith, Hope, & Love
Children will embark on a journey to discover the mysteries of the timeless Virtues with St. Brigid of Ireland, St. Nicholas of Myra, St. Juan Diego, St. Martin De Porres and Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. The exciting Mystery Key Hunt is sure to be a winner. In the "Glimpse of Heaven" Skit, children will witness a gathering of saints and their "storytelling" adventure with Jonah. Kids will hear Jonah's tale about his scary meeting with a huge whale and what can happen when one says NO to God!
Set Sail with St. Patrick & the Holy Trinity Children set sail with St. Patrick, the first Bishop missionary, and travel with him on his quest to spread Christianity to the dangerous & ungodly country of Ireland. They will experience first hand the all-knowing, all-loving, and all-powerful Holy Trinity. Teens will join the Adventures of St. Patrick cast, and the pirates are sure to capture the children's attention. They will be enthralled as Victor, a Guardian Angel disguised as a bird, flaps his way on to the stage.
Parachute with the Angels and St. Catherine Laboure
Children will encounter exciting characters from the Bible whose lives were transformed when visited by an angel. They will discover their own Guardian Angel and meet the Queen of Angels. While highlighting the Annunciation & Archangel Gabriel, children will hear about the role of our Blessed Mother in Salvation History. They will see how Heaven is present at the Holy Eucharist, including angels and saints. Through the inspirational story of St. Catherine, children will know the Power of Prayer and the Miraculous Medal. Children will NEVER forget the "Battle in Heaven" Skit!
