3rd Annual Vacation Church School - 08/22/08

During the week of August 18-22, 35 children, together with 15 seminarians and their wives, participated in our 3rd annual, week-long Vacation Church School for the Seminary.  The program ran from 9AM - 3PM Monday to Friday.  This year's theme was “God's Gifts!" with daily lessons on the Holy Sacraments taught by our Dean, Father Michael Dahulich.  Children aged 2-14 participated in activities such as, learning sacramental music, taking a "Tour of the Sacraments" in the Monastery Church, scavenger hunting for "God's Gifts", pool time, crafts and games, and “Wacky Olympics.”  Our week culminated in a generously sponsored trip to Knoebels Amusement Park.  The entire event was a blessing and success for our community!
