Cathletics for body and soul

For the first time in 7 years, St. William of York Church in Stafford is hosting a Vacation Bible School to the delight of both parents and campers. VBS coordinators Catherine Roets and Julia Pittman are using the Cathletics program this year, which corresponds with this year's summer Olympic games in Rio. The students have fun learning about the saints, virtues, beatitudes and other catholic fundamentals while also exercising their bodies through fun activities and crafts.

"It keeps them engaged with their faith," said Julia Pittman. "It is a fun way for them to get with other kids in the parish their age and learn about their faith."
