Each year, the children attending VBS have a mission service project. The Connecting Kids to Justice project focuses on our Catholic social teachings related to the life and dignity of the human person.
Operation Kid-to-Kid: Connecting kids to social justice at VBS. “Our relationship with the environment can never be isolated from our relationship with others and with God.” – Pope Francis Laudato Si, 119. At Cave Quest, we learned about what we can do to care for our common home, our planet. Our Bishops have written, “We show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. Care for the earth is … a requirement of our faith. We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God’s creation.” When we care for our planet we are showing our respect and love for God. Many times when disaster strikes, such as a storm or a drought, the most vulnerable people on our planet suffer the most. Pope Francis tells us, “ Thanks to Catholic Relief Services (CRS), an organization of our Catholic community that helps people in need around the world, you and I have a way we can help care for our common home and care for those among us who need us the most.” VBS participants brought money to support CRS as they work to help the poor become more resilient to natural disasters and the effects of climate change.
