Vacation Bible School 2016

July 11-15 at St. John the Baptist Church

During Vacation Bible School, our little ones heard the parable of the Sower and the Seeds.  As a lesson and in service to our parish, each child was given a small bag with seeds and a plastic spoon. Father Murray had someone till the garden for us, and each child dug a hole and planted their seeds! 

We hope to enjoy some pretty flowers in the garden. Should there be an abundance, we hope to send the flowers up to the pantry to allow anyone the pleasure of small bouquets! 


Our church hall transformed into a Barn Yard Round-Up!
