St. William Oktoberfest

Fri, Sept 26 & Sat, Sept 27

St. William celebrates its eighth annual Oktoberfest on Friday, September 26 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm, and again on Saturday, September 27 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm. This celebration of German culture takes place on the church grounds in a beautifully decorated setting that will remind you of a Bavarian village. Guests can sit under the Fest Tent and enjoy German and domestic beers and wine. Feast on German cuisine including bratwurst and German potato salad, potato pancakes, and giant pretzels. Desserts include cream puffs and strudels. Musical entertainment includes The Festmeisters on Friday night. The return of the crowd-favorite 15-piece Sauerkraut German Band will entertain us on Saturday. Split the pot and games will be available both days. Guests can also watch UC vs. Ohio State on a large screen TV on Saturday! Admission is $3 for adults. $1 for children under 12. Plenty of free parking behind St. William School. In case of rain, the festivities will move to Father Reardon Hall.

"Respite for the Soul" for Caregivers:  The Caregiver Assistance Network, a program of Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, has developed a program that will provide the following unique opportunity for six family caregivers here at St. William. Together with parish staff, we will work to enable the caregiver to attend Mass on Sunday (at least once a month) and to be able to attend a support and resource information group after Mass each month. Through the generosity of the Sisters of Charity Ministry Foundation, the Caregiver Assistance Network will provide 3 hours of paid in-home care for their loved one provided by an insured and bonded Health Care Agency which will create "Respite for the Soul" for the family caregiver.
