Fridays in July: Summer VBS
Fridays in July featured a brand new Vacation Bible School Program: Journey with the Saints to Mexico! As for the past five years, the four week program was prepared by our very talented Christian Education Minster, Susan Caldwell. Our program is unique. You won't find this program being run in any other church anywhere. Here's the overview, prepared by Susan Caldwell:
- July 6th Dia de Los Reyes
- July 13th Saints San Isidro-the farmer and blessing of the animals and Santiago Apostal en Sahuayo and the Story of the Virgin of Guadalupe
- July 20th Dia del Nino
- July 27th Posadas Navidad
Friday July 6th we enjoyed the Mexican celebration of Dia de Los Reyes. This is the meaningful visit of the Magi who have come to worship Christ the Infant King. We had a traditional Rosca de Reyes or Kings Cake.
Friday July 13th we learned about Patron Santiago Apostal en Sahuayo , San Isidro and the Blessing of the Animals and the story of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Friday July 20th we celebrated Dia del Nino with a picnic on the church grounds.
Closing our time together on Friday, July 27th was the re-enactment of Mary and Joseph going door to door but finally finding a place that welcomes them in the Posadas Navidad.
The program ran from 5:30-7:45 PM each Friday. Parishioners took on various roles as we brought these stories to life!
