Spark Imagination With Faith-Building Fun!

This epic African adventure engages the whole herd. At ROAR, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.

Send your kids on an impacting island adventure!

At ROAR VBS, kids discover how God remains when life changes. Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Imagination Station, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life.

Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot! Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project!

Experiencing God’s Word

At ROAR VBS, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day—making it easy to apply long after VBS is over.  Featuring Bible Memory Buddies that are makers, too!

Adult Volunteers

If you…

  • Are comfortable sharing your faith,
  • Want to bring some joy to others this summer
  • Have some experience working with children…

…then you belong on our team!

Interested in a volunteer opportunity this summer?  Saint Gregory the Great Vacation Bible School day camp is a terrific time to help and interact with the younger children of our parish.  Our VBS is loaded with fun-filled activities that bring kids closer to God.  Through the different activities – singing, science gizmo/crafts, games, snacks, bible story theatre – the children learn what the Bible point of the day is and how they can live it out in their life.

The theme for this year’s camp is ROAR: Life is Wild~ God is Good! The VBS camp will run Monday through Friday on July 22 – July  26.  Volunteers need to be here from 8:30am – 1pm.  On Friday the camp will conclude with a Mass that starts at noon.

We cannot put this camp on without volunteers – a lot of volunteers.  Work begins months before with planning, designing and assembling set decorations, making signs, registering campers, training, etc.  Would you like to play a role in this year’s camp?  You are awarded service hours for the time that you volunteer at the VBS camp.  Review the volunteer opportunities and let us know what you would be interested in.  Check your dates to make sure you can commit.  Please contact us for further information.

Registration will open April 29, 2019
