CVBS 2008 was a whirlwind week that, as always, was totally worth it. There is so much that I could say about this event that in the end, I decided to just let the pictures tell the story. The theme of this year’s school was “Holy Mary of Guadalupe, Ever Virgin.” Or, I should say that was the secondary theme. The primary themes were faith, hope, love and fun.
Yes, they had piñatas.
Section I: In the Nursery
(who refused to stay in the nursery with me)
So we lift up holy hands in one accord,
Singing, Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You’re my God.
You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether wonderful to me!
And those are the highlights from our whirlwind week!
Some of you have asked about the particulars—specifically, what is the name of the program that we use. Her name is Jean and you can’t have her! : ) Jean is our church’s Coordinator of Elementary Religious Education and I have written about her before. She put together this CVBS program using the book Our Lady and the Aztec by Josephine M. O’Neil (St. Anthony Guild Press).
If you are interested in speaking to Jean about your church’s VBS, email me and I will put you in touch with her.
All for the Greater Glory of God,
