St. Mary MacKillop and Upside Down Under

I am in the planning stages of our parishes’ VBS and finally settled on this neat theme:  Upside Down Under VBS ….pretty certain I bought the last remaining one!  It was a past (2011) version but I was looking for this kind of theme.

It’s a wonderful Australian theme with bible stories of the New Testament (such as Peter walking on water, Jesus healing the crippled man – and how Jesus transforms your life, basically turns it upside down!)

I thought we would feature some of our holy men and women that served in the great land down under, like St. Mary MacKillop, now the first Australian saint.

I am looking forward to decorating too!

I'm a Sister of St Joseph from Australia- one of Mary MacKillop's mob! Love your idea and shared it on Mary MacKillop's Facebook page

Good luck with your school
