Bring the whole family or share the day with friends. Whether you are a youngster or young-at-heart, Oktoberfest has all you need for a weekend filled with wonderful fall memories from the entertainment, food and drink , shopping, games, and rides.






Father Greg says, "I nailed it!" And thus the Hamster Rollin' Pastor wins another raffle challenge! 

With less than a month until the Opening Ceremony, there is a lot to talk about! The 22nd Annual Oktoberfest is September 28th, 29th, and 30th, and we want to make sure we share all of the excitement for this fun-filled weekend with you. There will be activities for all ages, including rides for the children, entertainment and musical acts on the main stage, a heated beer garden, casino gambling, craft show, local business expo, a wide variety of foods to choose from and raffles.  Did we mention raffles?  If all of the $25 Super Cash Raffle tickets are sold, we are looking for a whole new challenge! Any ideas?  Please send them our way to



It’s not too late to purchase your raffle tickets!  See our SUPERCASH Raffle sales team at the back of church to purchase your ticket to win the Early Bird prize of $500 which will be pulled Sunday after the 11:45am Mass on September 23rd.  Our sales went through the roof …..literally as Miss Scheffler camped out on the school roof for the night in 2013! Seeing a “pig kissing” pastor, a Lip Sync Rockstar in 2016, and two-time Hamster Ball  Race Champ, he really makes these challenges so fun!  We are looking forward to something spectacular this year!  Please do reach out to your family and friends to make this happen this year.


Children’s Activities

We all love to see children smile or hear them laugh. It is almost like magic. This year, the Children’s Activity Tent for Oktoberfest hopes to see lots of magic! We really look forward to seeing you and know how much you are looking forward to spending this family time with your kids and then bringing home your scarecrow for your autumn house decorating. Then, that magical memory of Oktoberfest can stay with you and your children for the rest of the season!
