St. Thomas the Apostle 2017 Vacation Bible School


2017 St. Thomas Vacation Bible School: “Maker Fun Factory: Created by God, Built for a Purpose!”

Mark your calendars for this year’s Vacation Bible School, June 26 – 30, 9 am to Noon each day.  This week promises to be one of the best experiences your children will have the entire summer!  The Preschool program is for children who are 4 years old (by June 30) through those entering Kindergarten in Fall 2017.  The Elementary program is for children who will be entering the 1st through 6th Grade in Fall 2017.  Registration begins on the weekend of May 20-21 after all Masses. There is no charge to attend VBS, we just ask families to contribute needed supplies for the program as they are financially able.  The list of supplies will be available during the weekend of May 20-21.

Early Registration for Full-week Adult Volunteers:  Open Now through May 15!

We are currently looking for adults (age 18 and over) who are able to volunteer for the entire week of VBS.  Similar to previous years, adult volunteers who commit to work the entire week of VBS are invited to register their children EARLY.  A nursery program for children under the age of 4 is available for parents who are willing to volunteer. 

All volunteers who will be 18 years old or older by June 26, 2017 need to have completed the Protecting God’s Children Virtus training.  A training session will be held at St. Thomas on Thursday, June 1 at 6:00 PM.  To register or to see additional training dates and locations, visit the Virtus Online site.

Early registration is found at the links below.  Early registration ends on May 15.
