Saint Gilbert Vacation Bible School News!  Remember - Life is Wild, God is Good!!

During our ROAR! week (June 17-21) the generous campers, volunteers, and families of VBS 2019 contributed:
  • Over 500 items (canned tuna/chicken, PB&J, rice/pasta sides, etc.) to our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.
  • Over $420 to our sharing parish, St. Benedict the African in Chicago.
  • AND many campers created notes and drawings to be distributed to veterans who will be going on the Honor Flight to D.C. in August.
We wish to thank everyone for their generosity!  These donations go into our community to help feed the poor, to assist St. Benedict in their mission to their children and families, and to thank some of our nation’s veterans for their service. Next year’s VBS theme will be Rocky Railway where “Jesus’ power pulls us through”!!  Watch the bulletin for dates in 2020.
