Summer programs in three vacation Bible school retreats took place in the Butte and Helena deaneries during June and August. A Butte program with the theme “PandaMania, Where God is Wild About You” took place June 20-24, and drew youth and adults from five of the six parishes participating. In Anaconda, a June 20-21 retreat with the theme “Wild About God” drew about 25 participants from Anaconda Catholic Community and other churches in the area. At the Cathedral of St. Helena, a program titled “Rock of Ages” was offered August 15-19. Youth at the Cathedral VBS play with a parachute on the cathedral lawn.
