“Vacation Bible School helps kids experience God’s Word in surprising and unforgettable ways!”

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a ministry outreach program to educate children about God. Participants enjoy a fun and faith-filled week held on the parish grounds with games, crafts, bible stories, singing, dancing and much more. VBS is one of the greatest opportunities to reach all people, especially children, and preschoolers, and lead them to the Lord. VBS is open to children who are PreK (age 3 and 4) through 5th grade (in the Fall). Registration is required.

Safe Environment

All catechists and volunteers will be background checked and trained in compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is a comprehensive set of procedures established by the USCCB in June 2002 for addressing allegations of sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy. The Charter also includes guidelines for reconciliation, healing, accountability, and prevention of future acts of abuse.

The Charter directs action in all the following matters:

  • Creating a safe environment for children and young people.
  • Healing and reconciliation of victims and survivors.
  • Making prompt and effective response to allegations.
  • Cooperating with civil authorities; Disciplining offenders.

Reporting

One of the requirements of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is that parishes make information available regarding Sexual Abuse and how to report it.  Complaints about sexual abuse by a member of the clergy or by a parish or Catholic school employee or volunteer can be made by contacting Lisa Petronis: 858-490-8353 or click here .
