Thank You to VBS Volunteers, Participants

Last Friday, Saint Michael Catholic Church ended its successful three-day Vacation Bible School, “Treasure God's Love.” Like every VBS, it would not be a success without the work of its dedicated volunteers and the support of the parish. This year is no exception. 

I would like to thank the following volunteers who unselfishly gave of their time to this year's VBS. They are Chastity Keller, craft leader; Amber Payne, game leader; Bailey Richards; music leader; Pat Lenne, snack leader; Madeline Johns, Bible story leader; Nicole Keller and Shannon Master, team guides; Mary Blake, Takis Kurtis, Diana Maze, JoAnna Mendez, Maria Mercado, Ben Raymond and Olivia Wendel. 

My heartfelt thank you to the many parishioners who donated vital supplies or made monetary donations. They include Tess Greer, Jane Horvath, Fran Kent, Amy Knapp, Susan Houin, Mary Smith and Sharie Raymond and Laura Vervynckt. 

Finally, I'd like to recognize the nearly 30 children themselves who participated. May God bless you! By team, they are: Saint Michael: Andres Alfaro, Angel Carmona, Johnny Jimenez, Ava Lloyd, Benjamin Lloyd, Estella Mendez, Brian Ochoa, Carter Reese, Kaden Reese, Jocelyn Sanchez, Josenia Sanchez, Madelynn Thangham, Lucas Thangham and Emily Voreis. Our Lady : Anne Blake, Jenna Blake, Sophia Cantero, Eleni Kurtis, Avery Loehr, Isaiah McCullough, Alex Pare, Max Pask, Natalie Payne, Sebastian Pask, Emma Richards, Mauricio Tochimani, Angie Turcios and Yvette Turcios
