The St. James Oktoberfest planning committee is looking
forward to our annual event on October 1, 2017. The Oktoberfest
Committee is needing leaders to guide the work in the
kitchen and dining room areas.
We Need You! What gifts
do you have that you are willing to put into service for the good
of the whole parish? Consider this important stewardship role
or recruit someone you think may have the talents and skills!
Please pray about it and reach out to your family and friends. If
you are willing to step up and serve or have questions call our
Oktoberfest coordinator Sara Bruner at 308-750-0193 or the
parish office. The next Oktoberfest planning meeting is August
29th at 7:00 p.m. in the Social Hall.

A newly formed “Be My Witness Team/Grupo Sean Mis
Testigos” is planning for engaging the parish in faith sharing in
small groups (English y Español) in the Spring of 2018. If you
want to be a part of the planning process please attend our next
meeting on August 16th at 7:00 p.m. at the church. If you are
interested and can’t make the meeting contact the parish office.

These are just two of the many activities planned for this
coming year. Soon you will hear and read about a fall marriage
enrichment group, the Watchmen gatherings, the new parish
pictorial directory, our campaign renewal to pay off the remaining
construction debt and much more!

I AM Joseph your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
