Parish Life

 

Oktoberfest - Every year St. Aidan's Church and Day School put on a massive Oktoberfest party for the community.  We have traditional German food, an oompah band, a silent auction, and great kids' activities like a Cake Walk, face painting, and pumpkin decorating.  To get involved, or donate something to the Silent Auction, contact the Church (saintaidans@verizon.net).

Shrine Mont Parish Retreat - There is no better way to get to know people and have a great time than our annual parish retreat to Shrine Mont in Orkney Springs the first full weekend of every August.  For more information, contact Elizabeth Rees (reeseliz@yahoo.com).

 Christmas Tree Sales - St. Aidan's sells the most beautiful and lush trees and wreaths in town!  Each year, dozens of people come together to sell trees.  The community loves this event, with the roaring fire, hot cocoa, joyful Christmas music and interesting projects involving kids and extra fir fronds.  St. Aidan's offers 10% of proceeds back to the local schools.
