On the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Friday, December 8, we were pleased to welcome Archbishop Hebda to our church! The feast of the Immaculate Conception is our Parish’s Feast Day.
Archbishop Hebda presided at Mass, with Father VanDenBroeke. After Mass, parish families and friends were invited to the Civic Center for coffee and goodies. Archbishop Hebda partook in the festivities, enjoying the treats and fellowship.
Please enjoy the pictures from this very special event!
Much fun was had by all who attended our 1st Annual Apple Cider Sunday on October 1. While it was raining outside, we were busy pressing inside. We pressed over 1,250 apples and made about 30 gallons of apple cider! Fresh pressed cider was given out to those who wanted a tasting, or take some home. In between the “work” of pressing, we enjoyed a yummy potluck lunch. As we finished pressing the last of our apples, we were entertained by the musical talent of our very own Fr. VanDenBroeke and special guest, Fr. Brandon Theisen.
Enjoy the pictures and we hope you can join us next year!
