St. John Neumann is happy to announce that our Vacation Bible School is returning this summer! Vacation Bible School will meet from Monday, July 11th – Friday, July 15th from 9 am – 12 pm at St. John Neumann for children who will be in Preschool 4- 5th grade in the Fall of 2022. To register your child, please complete our camper registration form as soon as possible. Participants must be registered St. John Neumann parishioners. Registration closes on May 31, 2022 and is $50 per child but FREE for all families with a parent volunteering during Vacation Bible School! Registration can be completed through our downloadable registration form or through paper forms, available in the Faith Formation Office during business hours and our faith formation class times. Checks can be made to “St. John Neumann” for registration payment.

For our Vacation Bible school to be a fun, fruitful, and faith-filled experience for all our campers, we’ll need the help of many adult and teen volunteers! Volunteers are needed to work as station leaders who lead themed lessons with pre-arranged activities, preschool volunteers, non-classroom coordinators, and for set-up and clean-up. If you are EVEN IN THE LEAST BIT interested in volunteering, please complete this online survey, with your interest in volunteering. Completing this form is not a binding commitment to volunteer but allows us to gauge how many more volunteers are needed. Any high school volunteers (rising 9th-12th grade) will receive service hours for all their time spent volunteering.

Vacation Bible School is NOT THE SAME AS OUR WEEKLY CLASSES! It is an immersive week of making friends, playing games, singing, and learning about our Catholic Faith through exciting and interactive activities. Children will not stay in one classroom each day, but will move from room to room for 4 different sessions and snack during each day of Vacation Bible School. Our theme this year is “Rocky Railway” with many of the activities connected to trains, mountains, and the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. If you have any questions, please contact Thomas Patchan. We look forward to spending this exciting week with your families this summer!
