VBS 2012 Vacation Bible School

Dear Parishioner,

As you may have seen in the Bulletin, or on the webpage, St. Benedict Parish will once again be hosting a Vacation Bible School, from 9AM - noon, the week of July 30th - August 3rd.

 The Vacation Bible School is for children in grades K-5 (students in Middle and High School are needed as volunteers and attend for free, and this would fulfill service hours for students in the Religious Education or Confirmation program).

The cost of the program is $25 dollars for one child, $40 dollars for two, or $50 dollars for a family of three or more.

The theme for this year's Vacation Bible School is:
SKY-For God all things are possible  (Mark 10:27).

This YouTube video will give you a sense of A Day at Sky VBS (Vacation Bible School).

It is a wonderful program. I think your children will learn about their faith and also have a also have a great time.

If you would like to register, simply send me an email with the name and grade of your child/children who will be attending,
then please make your check payable to

St. Benedict Church and mail it to my attention at the
Office of Faith Formation
3980 Main Street
Amherst, NY 14226

The deadline to register is Friday, July 20th.

For more information, please write or give me a call!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Matthew R. Smith
