VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 2019
We are making arrangements to begin our Vacation Bible School (VBS) here at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church on Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28 from 8:45am to 12:00pm each day. Two sisters from the Dominican Sister of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, in Ann Arbor, will be leading the VBS program. VBS is an effective way to form children in their faith. The interactive learning environment and fun factor not only offer kids a great experience, but they drive home core faith values and learning. The catchy songs and daily themes stick in their heads and everything they do during the day reinforces those themes. The main purpose of VBS is to serve kids and families in our area and a way to reach out to new families in our communities.
Please help spread the word to other families you know and encourage them to attend. The VBS program is open to all kids, grades K-8 , in our area regardless of their faith affiliation. There is no cost to attend the program but free will donations will be appreciated.
Sign-up sheets are available in the parish office and at all church exits. If you would like to volunteer or want more information, please call the parish office at 989-366-5533. We look forward to meeting you and sharing the time with our Dominican sisters.
75+ BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION for parishioners will be on Sunday, June 23, at 5:00pm. The program will begin with an evening prayer service in the church. Social time and dinner at 5:30pm in the school gymnasium. Bishop Steven Raica will be joining us for the celebration to honor our brothers and sisters for the celebration for life. Mark your calendar!
