Day 5 Recap

Today, we took a Radical Ride to Mexico!


The Theme was “Refueling: How to refuel our faith!” God has given us so much to keep the faith alive in our hearts. Mary (our Blessed Mother), the angels and the saints are very special gifts to us. They inspire us to live a holy life. Let us not forget to ask our heavenly friends to pray for us!

To summarize all we learned about prayer this week, we prayed over the items that will be donated to the food pantry asking that all who receive the items will be blessed. Thanks to all who contributed!

Virtue of the Day

The Virtue of the Day was Humility. We used a batch of soft, fresh play dough and a batch of hard, dry play dough to explain the difference between a soft, humble heart and a hard, prideful heart.  We saw how much easier it is to make a cool creation out of soft play dough versus trying to form something great with the hard play dough. Someone who is humble of heart allows God to help them become the best person he/she can be. Someone who has a hard, prideful heart has a harder time becoming the best person he/she can be.

Saint of the Day

The Saint of the Day was Saint Francis Xavier. We presented each child with a saint card today, so please read the story on the back of the card with your child.

Faith Station

The Saint of the Day was St. Juan Diego. We presented each child with a saint card today, so please read the story on the back of the card with your child.

Bible Verse of the Day

“Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances…” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

*repeat this scripture to your child a few times to see if they can memorize it or ask them to teach you the song they learned in the faith station.

Music Station

The new Cat.Chat song of the day was “Almighty God.” 

Craft Station

Your child made a great craft today (VBS Photo Frames). You may choose to display some of your child’s crafts of the week in special places in your home as reminders of his/her VBS experience. We also did a Saint of the Day Coloring Page.

Snack Station

The kids made “Mexican Sangria for Kidsand had water ice from Rosemaries. 

Thank you to our friends at Rosemaries for your generous support and contribution to St. Isidore's VBS! 

Games Station

More general questions to ask your child:

The Cat.Chat Challenge today is:

Have your family dedicate a specific time each evening to pray together. The saying is true that “A family that prays together, stays together?” Praying together will bring you closer to Christ and closer to each other!“Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20). This will be a very special time for you, especially for your child(ren). 

Thank you for participating in Cat Chat's VBS at St. Isidore's

We hope you enjoyed this week and that it has brought you closer to Christ and taught you how to pray with the angels and saints.
