As part of the outreach component built into this week’s VBS, every participating child handcrafted a beautiful gold-leaf candle like those pictured, adorned with a pewter cross. But these were not a “take-home” craft. Instead, they will be available for purchase during Sunday’s “Sundaes on Sunday” VBS Celebration in Gillespie Hall, 11 August, following the 7:30 and 9 AM Masses, with gross proceeds going to Redeemer’s Foster Youth Initiative. Candles are $5 each, and cash and checks are welcome.
