OKTOBERFEST!!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday October 11th- it’s time for some St. Nicholas Family Fun!

Mt. Prospect’s Fall Festival/Oktoberfest is a wonderful annual event with activities for children from 1pm to 4pm and a BIG Oktoberfest party from 4pm to 11pm.

Let’s get together for brats, schnitzel, German beer, strudel, polkas, sing-along, chicken dancing and some good old “Gemutlichkeit” : )

We’ll have balloons and/or banners to help you find our “Stammtisch” (special table) and we’ll invite our friends from St. John’s to join us there.

We can meet up at the fest around 6:00pm and we’ll have Sign-Up Sheet for a carpool that will leave St Nick’s after the 4:00 mass if anyone is interested.

PROST!!

P.A.D.S Community Meal September 19 at Christus Victor Lutheran Church

GivingHeart

“Providing Advocacy, Dignity and Shelter,” more commonly known as P.A.D.S., not only serves the area’s poor and homeless with safe and clean overnight shelter, P.A.D.S. also provides fun and filling meals.

On September 19th, St. Nicholas will be part of this ministry for the first time. We will provide the meal which will be served at Christus Victor Evangelical Lutheran Church.

The menu: mostaccioli with sausage or meat balls, green salad, dinner roles and/or French bread, cookies and/or brownies, chips and lemonade. St. Nicholas will supply the green salad while Vince and Jeff will bring the chips. Who is ready for some baking and cooking?

Our own Vince Ortero and Jeff Westerheide will coordinate this event. Jeff, Vince and our Laura Lampe have long been involved in this very important and necessary ministry. There is always room for more helping hands!

The sign-up sheet is in the gathering space at church. All are welcome to come and be part of this village-wide gathering.

God bless us, one and all.
