St. Agnes Vacation Bible School Logo

Go spelunking through dark caves with Jesus as your light at Cave Quest Vacation Bible School! Kids learn Jesus is the one who lights our way and gives us hope for each new day. His love illuminates when the path is dark. Cave Quest VBS encourages kids to follow Jesus where ever he will lead them!

VBS will be held here July 11-15 in the Parish Hall from 9-11:30 a.m. The cost for the week is $20 and includes a t-shirt and a gift. Participant and volunteer registration forms are located in the back of the church or here on our parish website.

Participant Registration Form Volunteer Registration Form

Want to help with St. Agnes's VBS but don't think you have the time? There are lots of small ways you can help that don't require a big time commitment or for you to be there during VBS itself. We are looking for people willing to help make decorations that can be made in the weeks leading up to camp, create an outdoor playtime activity, science activity, snack, or even paperwork duties. If there is one day you'd like to help during VBS but can't commit to the whole week...No problem! All help is welcome and we know how hard it is to work these things into your busy schedule. We're also looking for volunteers to lead or assist activities during the week of camp. This does count towards student/family volunteer hours for next school year. Contact Kathy at the parish office, 793-1330, if you are interested.

Letter from Father Bob

Dear Friends in Christ,
A special word of congratulations to Karen Ferguson who was received into the Catholic Church and confirmed Sunday, May 15, the Solemnity of Penecost. Keep Karen in prayer as well as Ruth Ziogas who received into the Church at the Easter Vigil (March 26). May they and all initiated into the Church during the Easter season across our diocese, grow in grace, wisdom and love in the Lord.
Also, we are blessed with such a wonderful music ministry here in our Church of St. Agnes. We will be hosting a music concert on Sunday, June 5, 3:30 pm. This is a fitting way to return thanks to God for this gift.

Blessings,

Fr. Bob
