VBS Student Registration

This year VBS will be held online jointly with other NorCal Parishes from June 18, Friday to June 20, Sunday. The theme is Destination Dig. The student registration can be found here. Please register before April 30. The The volunteer registration form can be found here. Please register. See VBS presentation here.
VBS Team informs the following.
This year for VBS, we are requiring that each child use a unique zoom account. As a result, VBS registration will be a multi step process.
1. If each child does not have a unique gmail, create a gmail id.
2. Register for vbs using this form.
3. Register for a zoom account with the newly created email ID that you registered with.
Unique zoom accounts for each child will help us save time by pre-assigning kids to their VBS classroom. When they log into zoom using their designated accounts, they will automatically be assigned to the right classrooms, enabling a seamless login process for each VBS session!
