"I'm Gonna Let it Shine!"

Our Spirit in Action
For children summer vacation may seem long and boring. For catechists hour-long classes may seem too short for in-depth learning. But with Summer Bible School, Sister Mary Glynn and her helpers gather children for a deep and memorable experience of prayer, learning and the celebration of their faith.

During Cavequest the children were constantly reminded that Christians are called to overcome darkness in the world by being light for others.  Songs, Bible stories, crafts, games, and videos integrated this invitation to bring the Light of Christ into the darkness of our world. The children entered into the experience of the apostles, listening to Jesus teach and witnessing his miracles.  They were deeply moved while reflecting on the gift of love as Jesus suffered his passion and then were caught up in the darkness of the crucifixion that burst into the light of the resurrection. They discovered how to be light for others by trusting in the power of the Holy Spirit–the gift of the resurrected Jesus. Although they sang “This Little Light of Mine” with gusto, “I have decided to follow Jesus … no turning back” quickly became the favorite!
