WHY Novemberfest?

The event is our school’s LARGEST fundraiser and brings in about $200K of revenue for the school, faith formation, and parish ministries. The largest percentage goes to fund our parish school to offset tuition and other expenses.

It takes about 9,000 volunteer hours to plan, execute, and manage Novemberfest. Each school family, per your enrollment contract, is obligated to work 10 hours. There are TONS of opportunities to get involved in the months ahead, during the event weekend, and after. The iVolunteer website is the location to sign up for all Novemberfest service hours and all hours are to be turned in on the provided Service Hour Documentation Form.

Novemberfest is an amazing weekend of fellowship, teamwork, celebration,  and dedication! We look forward to sharing this opportunity with you. If you have any questions, please contact Therese Alonso at the school office at 689-3395 or Cindy Erhinger at the church office at 681-4608.
