The FALL FESTIVAL CELEBRATION Is Quickly Approaching
This year, our Fall Festival Celebration will take place on the weekend of October 22 & 23. It will begin the morning of the 22nd with the 5k Skeleton Scramble Run/Walk at Great Life Golf & Fitness on SE 29th Street. In conjunction with the run/walk, there is a special 1k Funny Bones Run JUST for children (age 12 and under). It's a great event, and the setting for the run is beautiful. It's a good way to enjoy autumn in all its splendor.
Later that evening we have a new event called the "International Table: Food From Around the World." The idea behind this dinner was to celebration the cultural diversity that is a part of St. Matthew Parish. We will be serving lasagna, krautstrudels, enchiladas, and BBQ pulled pork! All items are ala cart so you can get a variety of foods if you so wish. As part of the event, we will be hosting a Lasagna Bake-Off, with parishioners entering their favorite lasagna recipes in hopes of willing the grand prize. Tickets can be purchased for the dinner in advance this weekend (October 8/9) in the Gathering Space after each of the Masses.
The on Sunday, October 23rd, we will have all the traditional games and amusements for young and old alike. And let's not forget about our famous Turkey Dinner. People wait all year for this meal and come from miles around to get a jump on Thanksgiving with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry salda, green beans and pie for desert. You can't ask for a better meal. So plan now to join us!
As you might imagine, it takes many, many voluteers to put on a weekend like the Fall Festival Celebration. We are currently asking people to volunteer so as to make it all happen. This weekend there will be volunteer sign up taking place after all the Masses in the Gathering Space. And new this year, you can even go online and sign up to volunteer.
