Vacation Bible School
Children dive in to Bible study at Malverne Church
Susan Grieco/Herald
Campers at the Our Lady of Lourdes summer vacation Bible school, which recently ended after two weeks, practiced for a closing performance of songs and skits for their families.

Our Lady of Lourdes in Malverne recently closed its two-week vacation Bible school, which ran from Aug. 6-17. This year’s theme was “Diving In With All Our Hearts.”

Children ages 4-9 spent three hours each weekday morning at the church. Regular activities included crafts, Bible lessons, music and sports. Each day began with an opening prayer and song.

On the last day of camp, there was a closing show in which campers performed songs and skits for the family and friends based on their lessons throughout the two weeks.

Several teens from the church volunteered their time as counselors for the annual vacation Bible School. They led the children in each day’s activities.
