You are invited on a pilgrimage from June 23-27 at Grace Church! At Cathedral: A Pilgrim’s Path VBS, we will take a journey together in search of sacred space! We will become artisans and apprentices, builders and sculptors and even ancient pilgrims as we transform raw elements into the building blocks of sacred space. We will travel to the Sistine Chapel to paint on the ceiling, we will help tile St. Peter’s Basilica and will even hunt for sacred relics! We will experience the stories of Jesus and the presence of God as we come together to build our own Cathedral as the Body of Christ. Registration begins Monday, April 28 for all. Visit our VBS website or follow us on Facebook for all the details and to download the registration form.
