Cave Quest

We had 56 enthusiastic chidren attend VBC this year.  They laughed, sang and enjoyed the Cave Quest.  We especially want to thank the many parishioners who sponsored a child to attend, in addition to the Chester Water Authority and Wawa for donating beverages.  VBC couldn’t have happened without the work of Director of Faith Formation Kathy Aaronson and the 55 great teen and adult volunteers who gave their time talent and energy to help the children enjoy the week to the fullest!  Thank you!
