First Annual Transfiguration Oktoberfest - Thank you!
We wish to thank everyone that participated in the planning and exectuion of the first social event of our 175th Anniversary year. Hours of planning were put forth by the event chairs: Mark and Camie Kwasigroch and 175th Anniversary Committee members: Fr. Ron Gollatz, Bill Hughes, Dave Jakubek, Monica Glavey, Mary Gebelhoff, Jim and Mary Ann Fijalkiewicz (to name a few). The delicious food was prepared by the Knights of Columbus. We had many volunteers for admissions, ticket sales, food and beverage service, setup, cleanup and raffles. A special thanks goes out to our area businesses and parishioners that donated the wonderful items for the raffles. The day would not have been successful without participation by everyone - especially those that came to enjoy the music, food, games and fun!
We continue our planning for the monthly activities which began in August of 2015 and end in August of 2016. We will kicked off the year with Prayer: August 9 Bishop Rassas presided at the 9 am mass to begin the anniversary year. Oktoberfest took place on September 19. We are also planning service and outreach activities as well as Madrigal Performances with dinner, Mardi Gras, other masses at various locations, picnics and participation in area parades on Memorial Day and July 4. We need your participation in the planning and success of our activities. Our next planning meeting is Tuesday, September 29 at 7:30 pm in the Parish Office Meeting rooms. Anyone that would have historical information and pictures to please contact us. Our history committee would love to speak with you. Please contact Kathie at the Parish Office 847-526-2400 x245.
