St. Mary's Second Vacation Bible School a Success
Our second annual VBS - Cath-letics to place at the whole July 11 to the 15th. The theme was the Summer Olympics in Rio. The main focus was the 10 Commandments, the Beatitudes, and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. Through crafts, games, music and food (!) the children were introduced to the tenants of our faith. Annette and Jolene did a super job with the music and the adult volunteers had as much fun as the kids

Pilgrims from St. Mary's Make Trek to Our Lady of Lourdes Cathedral in Spokane
On Saturday, June 11, under sunny skies and with cool temperatures, 22 pilgrims gathered at the statue of Our Blessed Virgin Mary at St. Thomas More Church to begin their 5 1/2 mile (plus or minus) pilgrimage to our Lady Lourdes Cathedral in Spokane and to pass through the Holy Door. Everyone arrived in one piece, although there were reports of pilgrims being sidetracked along the way by milkshakes and maplebars!

The pilgrims were joyfully greeted at the Cathedral by about a dozen "driving pilgrims” from St. Mary Presentation. Fr. Oiland and Deacon Perry exchanged their walking clothes for church vestments and offered Holy Mass. After Mass, our sweep vehicle driver, Dennis Koesel, who fortunately did not need to pick any pilgrims up in his van, ferried some pilgrims back to the north side to their cars at St. Thomas More, while other pilgrims experienced the Spokane city bus system.

On the way back to the parking lot, pilgrims were discussing the possibility of holding a another pilgrimage walk before the end of the Year of Mercy. A good time was had by all!
