Turn your hot summer days into cool faith-filled experiences with Vacation Bible School (VBS).

Immaculate Conception invites children to participate in fun and faith-filled activities by offering exciting themes each year.

The theme for 2018 is... Marvelous Mystery: The Mass Comes Alive!

VBS will be held July 30-Aug 3, 2018 at the Immaculate Conception Church and St. Mary School Campus this year.

What happens at VBS?

Gain a new appreciation for the Mass and a deeper love for Jesus present in the Eucharist with this Cat.Chat VBS! With the Marvelous Mystery: The Mass Comes Alive VBS, kids will spend a whole week discovering more about the Catholic Mass and deepening their love for Jesus in the Eucharist through faith teachings, music, games, crafts and snacks!

 

Who can attend?

Boys and girls ages 3 through completion of 4th grade —there’s something inspiring for every child at Vacation Bible School. Children must be registered for VBS. Please complete our online Registration Form.

Can I volunteer to help with Vacation Bible School?

Yes PLEASE! (fill out this form).  The program is only as good as all the volunteers that help make it a fun and successful week. All adult VBS volunteers are required to have a current background check and attend Called to Protect training. Please make sure your check and training are current before volunteering for VBS. This is a great opportunity for middle school and high school youth to help out during summer vacation. We are happy to provide proof of community service for those that have those requirements in school programs.
