This is just a reminder that the 10:00 a.m. mass on Sunday, October 12, Oktoberfest Day, will be at St. Albert. This is a wonderful way to start our Oktober-fest celebration. The mass will be held in the auditorium. Please come and celebrate the greatest day in our church.
Don’t forget to turn in your Oktoberfest tickets. One of the most important things is that you support Oktoberfest in every way possible. I once again, encourage you to bring your family, your friends and your neighbors to celebrate the day with us.
We can still use help for Oktoberfest in several ar-eas. Please check the sheets in the back and the front of the church to see what areas where we still need workers.
I wish to thank the Knights of Columbus for the won-derful breakfast that we had last Sunday. The mon-ies raised from the breakfast will be given to stu-dents from our parish who are attending St. Albert. I don’t know of anywhere that there is a breakfast that is so good as the ones that the Knights prepare for us. Thank you for a job well done.
I wish to thank the Parish Life Committee for the marvelous Oktoberfest walk and bike ride that we had last Sunday. There is nothing more blessed than to spend a beautiful afternoon with our parish family. The fellowship is such a gift from the Good Lord. The refreshments were fantastic and the com-pany was truly a blessing to all of us. Thank you to all of you who participated in the day it was a tremendous time.
