Despite soggy weekend weather 25 people combined fun activities with faith education at the first St. Mary of the Angels Parish Vacation Bible School Family Campout.

Activities at the June 24-25 campout behind St. Mary of the Angels Church and Friary in Green Bay included indoor and an outdoor scavenger hunts, crafts, skits, prayers, Mass, a movie, a sing-along, and a campfire.

A Saturday highlight was the outdoor scavenger hunt. Two member teams were given a sheet of paper with 18 questions and a Catholic Bible. Teams had to locate a specific spot on the church grounds, such as a lily or a clump of birch trees, find something hidden there or read a specific Bible verse and then follow the question's instructions.   Full story ...
