The Parish Family of Ste. Rose de Lima offers our sincere sympathy to
Fr. Bill and the entire Tourigny family on the passing of Mr. Hector Tourigny.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
We had an incredible Vacation Bible School Week. We began with eleven children and ended with fifteen! On SonTreasure Island we watched a skit each morning with crazy characters named Captain Cooky, Brad Krumbs, Coco Banana, Pearl Shellfish aka Sugar Cooky, we learned exciting Bible Stories, such as God Gives Us Jesus, Jesus Helps a Young Girl and a Sick Woman, Jesus Cares for a Samaritan Woman, Jesus Forgives Zacchaeus and Jesus Lives Forever. We made incredible crafts, like a sail boat, treasure box, a beautiful flower arrangement, maracas and a Nativity Scene, we played cool games with a parachute, swim goggles, flippers and life vest, WATER BALLOONS, awesome noise makers, our delicious snacks of strawberry starfish, graham cracker towels, celery log and ritz cracker blue seas, cute cupcake islands, s’mores and yummy cookies with messages, exciting experiments such as tropical smoothies, palm trees and water tornadoes, rockin’ and a movin’ songs of “Treasure Forever” and “Savior of the World”!! We celebrated Mass in the chapel with Father Bill (thank you so much Father Bill). We learned that God’s love is Giving, Kind, Caring, Forgiving and Forever. We had an amazing week and we learned God loves us no matter what! WOW! Thank you to all the children who attended, Julia, Gracie, Alexis, Gabbie, Blain, Damon, Shane, Meghan, Kaden, Christina, Emma B., Annabella, Allison, Emma D. and Izzy. A very special thank you to all of our helpers, Alyssa, Heather, Ashley, Sarah, Angela, Brooke, Hannah, Missy, Darlene, Mandy, Cody, Austin, Shawn and Pauline. Thank you Dave Rosinski for coming, donating and helping all of our children create beautiful flower arrangements! A special thank you to a wonderful couple in the parish that donated money for two children to attend free of charge, who asked to remain anonymous.
We are excited to see what VBS adventures await for 2015!
