What's happening in our parish
Let’s all go to Vacation Bible School! The fun starts on Monday, July 29 and runs through Thursday, August 1 from 9 am to noon at St. Mary’s. The theme this year is To Mars and Beyond! All children ages 3-9 are invited to attend this ecumenical, interactive, energizing Bible-based good time as they explore where God’s power can take them. They become Voyagers and discover how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives. Cost is $25 per child; $35 for a family.
