Little angels soar at Fairfax VBS

First slide

The angelic theme permeated the “Parachute with the Angels” Vacation Bible School at St. Mary of Sorrows Church in Fairfax.

Campers donned halos before competing in a relay race. They made angels out of paper plates and popsicle sticks. Their color-coordinated shirts had wings, and the walls featured Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. During Bible time, they learned the roles angels have played in God’s plan for salvation.

For their service project, some 130 campers decorated and stuffed paper bags with toys, onesies and blankets for Project Gabriel, the Diocese of Arlington program for pregnancy assistance, said Shelley Schaad, one of the organizers. “When we did it last year, they said it was what the moms needed exactly when they needed it,” she said.
