Today was the first day of VBS at our church. I agreed to be one of the tribe leaders this year. The theme for this year is When the Saints go Marching in. The patron saint for the week is St. Joseph obviously since that is our parish. Ethan is in the Dan tribe with several of his friends from school. I am the leader of tribe Simeon and Jude is in my tribe which consist of 9 children going into kindergarten next year.
Our saint of the day was St. Therese The Little Flower
We made wheat bread(we will make a different bread everyday)
The kids painted wood garden signs
We learned a song about St. Therese and started learning the verses and hand motions to When The Saints Come Marching In
One of our Deacons told us a story about St. Therese
- She became a french nun at the young age of 14
- She died at 24 of tuberculosis
-She saw the good in everyone and viewed people as flowers
-Her jobs in the convent were cooking and cleaning. She was proud of these jobs and would offer them up to god.
These our just a few facts about St. Therese
The kids then watched a movie and then we met in the church for a final prayer to end the day.
