Food Truck Party VBS invites children of all ages to get on a roll with God as a parade of Food Trucks rolls into their neighborhood for the summer’s biggest party!

This VBS invites children to pray as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread.” These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it’s by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met.

At the center of the Food Truck Party is a special food truck called “On a Roll.” Here, Kids (or “Chefs”) will learn from the food truck’s Top Chef, along with DJ Cupcake (an adorable cupcake puppet), about the Daily Specials (Daily Learnings), which are lines from the well-loved prayer that teaches us to turn to God to meet our needs.


For close to twenty years, the parishioners of St. Barbara have collected items, raised funds, traveled monthly with supplies, and forged relationships with the people of Beattyville, Kentucky.

This summer, the youth of Mother of Sorrows and neighboring parish friends will go one step further and spend a week serving our Kentucky Project friends. KYP2022 will have teens working on building projects such as handicap accessibility, constructing decks, painting, and more.
It will be a week dedicated to Eating. Sleeping. Serving. and Praying.
