The month of June, 1945 marked the twenty- fifth anniversary of an event which has had a profound and widespread effect on the Catholic life of this country. This event was the inauguration of the first organized Religious Vacation School at Cottage Grove, Springfield and Junction City, missions of St. Mary's parish, Eugene, Oregon.|The history of the Religious Vacation School is surprising in that it covers a period of years considerably longer than one would at first suspect. No doubt many pastors in the land have devised similar plans in their attempts to answer the problem of the religious education of Catholic children attending public schools. However, because of the want of detailed information concerning such attempts our history of the vacation school must, of necessity, be incomplete.
