Liturgical Ministry Schedule

Confirmation 2017


VBS 2017

Due to the number of snow days that the schools accrued over the course of this past year, this year’s Vacation Bible School will now be held the week of June 26th to 30th  at Our Lady of Peace School. 

 Start planning ahead for this year’s Vacation Bible School adventure.  Last year, over 200 children attended this exciting program! 

To make things run smoothly, we had over 80 volunteer crew leaders.  Ask yourself, “Can I help make a difference in the lives of over 200 children this year?” 

If the answer is “yes”, please contact Nettie Goldate at the Parish Office at 570-586-1741.  Thanks!
