Mountain climbing isn’t normally on the agenda at Vacation Bible School, but this year the kids took on “Everest: Conquering challenges with God’s mighty power.” The 22 students learned that God has the power to provide, heal, forgive, comfort and love us forever. They focused on those concepts in songs, games, crafts and snacks. Each day a guest speaker presented one of the themes and a Bible passage, including a special piece of our Catholic faith. As service projects, the campers sponsored a blood drive with the War Memorial Blood Bank and collected quarters to help a small village in Nepal that was destroyed in recent earthquakes. Special thanks to the ten teen crew leaders and five adult leaders. The week-long event is part of the North Side consolidated faith formation program, which includes Ascension, St. Bridget, and Our Lady of Victory.
