St. Mary’s Camp a Host of Fun
The annual St. Mary’s VBS (Vacation Bible School) four-day camp was filled to the brim with campers of all ages and their teen counselors, held June 30-July 3 in the new building and on the surrounding grounds. Fr. Jeffrey Maurer, who heads St. Mary’s, thanked staffers Joe Haas, Alyssa McCabe, Elena Wakeham, Catherine Strohman, Sr. Kathleen, Brian Manngard, the Knights of Columbus, and the many other parishioners who put in countless hours and a lot of energy to make the camp experience a joyful one for the children.
