St. Matthew Parish Invites Children to Cave Quest VBS: Following Jesus, the Light of the World!
A summer kids’ event called Cave Quest VBS will be hosted at St. Matthew’s from Aug. 15, 2016 to Aug. 19, 2016. At Cave Quest, kids explore what it means to follow Jesus through dark times. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of Jesus’ love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Cave Quest Closing that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 11:45am.
Kids at Cave Quest VBS will join a mission effort to repair homes for families in the United States.
Cave Quest is for kids from ages 5 to 10 and will run from 9:30am to 12:00pm each day. Cost is $45 per child. For more information, call 603-898-4818 or download the sign-up form.
So that a pilgrimage can be made more easily, Bishop Libasci has directed that one church within each of New Hampshire’s nine deaneries have a Holy Door that pilgrims may pass through this jubilee year. Those who make a pilgrimage to, and pass through, a Holy Door during the Year of Mercy are granted a plenary indulgence, which gives full remission of the temporal punishment due to sin.
