V.B.S. (Summer Catechesis Program)


June 24th – June 28th
8:30 am to 12:00 pm


Join us in Athens and become part of Paul’s dangerous journey to share the truth! We’ll travel back into Bible times this summer—without setting foot outside our community. Each day, children will become part of history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in ancient Athens! You’ll explore Marketplace shops, visit Paul, take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs, and sample tasty tidbits as we discover more about Paul’s Missionary adventures. God’s Word will be alive!


Each day at VBS participants aged PreK 3 through Grade 6,

  • Begin at 8:30 am in the school cafetorium. (PreK 3 & PreK4 youth meet in their rooms on the first day only.)
  • Experience cool crafts, fun games, upbeat music, hands-on activities and snacks
  • Are joined by family and friends in the school cafetorium at 12:00 noon for pick-up.

For students not registered at Ascension Catholic School there is a $50 deposit per child attending which can be used towards the fee or will be refunded.

During VBS week, Summer Program employees bring youth over to the VBS activity in the morning and pick them up for Summer Care afterwards. Be sure to pack a lunch, drink and snacks for the afternoon! If you bring your child to VBS first, you can leave the lunch with our VBS volunteers and it will get over to the Summer Program.
