In recent years, many catechists are finding themselves involved in teaching over the summer in “Vacation Bible School,” once a phenomenon found fairly exclusively in Protestant circles. Several Catholic versions of VBS exist and other creative DREs have found ways to adapt Protestant VBS to Catholic settings.
I’ve not been involved in VBS although I think its a great idea. The parish where I serve as a catechist has run a very successful VBS for a couple of years…maybe this year I’ll have a chance to sneak a peek although they usually take place when I’m at work.
If you have any experience with VBS in a Catholic setting, I’d love to hear from you.
