St. Agnes parish: Vacation Bible School announcement

Dear St. Agnes Community,

As the St. Agnes VBS planning committee, we would like to update you about VBS for this summer. We were planning to run VBS from Monday July 6, to Friday July 10. We met this week as a committee, along with Father Aleks, to discuss the impact of the corona virus on our VBS plans.

Our conclusion was that we will not run VBS in July. It is not clear if any camps will be running in Waterloo Region this summer. If public health does give the go-ahead for camps in July,  we expect that they will monitor how these camps go, and the success of any public health guidelines that they have passed down for camps.

Toward the end of July, our committee will discuss VBS plans. If things go well for other local camps in July, we hope to be able to offer a camp experience for the St. Agnes community around the middle of August, depending on the availability of volunteers. 

Thank you(!) to all of you volunteers, who offered to help out with VBS this summer. As mentioned, we will decide toward the end of July, whether we will plan for a VBS in August. If we try to get an August VBS going, we will reach out to see about your availability.

It is unfortunate that the impact of the corona virus has extended to VBS. We do hope that we can run a safe camp in August. In the meantime, we hope that you all stay safe and healthy!

Leslie, Lisa, Andreas
