Don't Miss Winterfest Feb. 15-16

Warm up with Winterfest 2020, our annual community celebration and fundraiser, on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15-16, at St. Michael Catholic Church. The festivities begin after 5 PM Mass on Saturday with the Spaghetti Dinner and Bake Sale in the Gathering Space, followed by cribbage and 500 card tournaments beginning at 7:30 PM.  Raffle tickets will also be on sale, with a grand prize of $1,500!

On Sunday, the Bake Sale will be open after all Masses. Our annual Chili & Soup Contest and raffle ticket sales begin after 10:30 AM Mass. Come to enter the contest, or just to eat lunch and vote for the best in each category, then join us for Bingo and a Meat Raffle 1:30-4:30 PM. Raffle ticket sales end at 4 PM, with the drawings at 4:15 PM for cash prizes and a new snowblower. (You need not be present to win.)

How to Help
  • Join us for this event and invite your family and friends. This is a wonderful way to spend time with old friends and make new ones, with plenty of food and fun for everyone.
  • We need your delicious baked goods for the bake sale. This is a great fundraiser for our parish, and people always enjoy the wonderful treats.
  • Sell or purchase your raffle tickets. Please drop your tickets in the offertory basket prior to Feb. 16 or return them to the parish office, including any unsold tickets.
Prices and Participation
  • The Spaghetti Dinner is $9 for adults and $6 for children under 12 years old.
  • To join the cribbage of 500 tournaments, simply show up at the church ready to play! If two people want to be a team, that is fine, but everyone will be assigned teammates and tables. Cards and cribbage boards will be provided, but if you have a board you want to use, feel free to bring it.
  • To enter the Chili & Soup Contest, call the Parish Office at 763-497-2745 or email Andrea Zachman at [email protected] by Feb. 10. (Please include the name of your chili or soup.)
  • Samples are free at the Chili & Soup Contest, but to eat and cast your vote, the cost is one cup for $2 or three cups for $5, including drink and crackers.
