Serving the Catholic Community of Castro Valley

Vacation Bible School

With the current Shelter-In-Place directive still in place, and more directives from State and County expected about social gatherings, Athens Vacation Bible School will be postponed until the summer of 2021.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We hope to see you for VBS next summer!  More information about upcoming children’s ministry events to come…
