OSWEGO, NY – St. Maryâ€™s Church in Oswego recently finished up its third year of Vacation Bible School for young parishioners, friends, and community children.
More than 70 children raging in ages from 2 â€“ 12, from as far away as Georgia, Zurich and the Philippines ventured on a â€œHigh Seas Expeditionâ€ learning about Godâ€™s word.
Four nights of music, crafts, games and fun was had by all.
A mission project to support the local food pantry also was incorporated in the weekâ€™s festivities.
St. Maryâ€™s VBS is just one way the church is expanding opportunities for young children to become involved and be active participants in parish events and activities.
A childrenâ€™s choir has been formed, and the childrenâ€™s room during the 10:45 a.m. Sunday mass will begin again this fall.
Children will also be performing VBS songs at the upcoming St. Mary Feast Day on Aug. 14 at Breitbeck Park.
