It's time to plan for Oktoberfest 2015. We have a new person willing to co-chair this event, but we need one more to help carry the load. Much of the hard work is done, but we need leadership in order for this fun money-making event to happen. Please call the parish office today at 362-6584 if you have questions or would like to offer your skills and abilities toward this event.
