Dear Friends in Christ,
Greetings from Prince of Peace Parish. Spring is right around the corner and so too is our SpringFest, scheduled for Sunday, April 8th at Kearney Catholic High School. This is not only our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year. More importantly, it is our biggest fellowship event because of the multitude of willing parishioners who generously volunteer their time energy, and treasures! If you are new to the parish or have not been involved before, I would encourage you to do so.
We are very excited for some new things that will be happening at SpringFest. We will have our Mercantile Village, which was new last year. This will include the traditional Bake Sale, BINGO, and beautiful Botanical Garden. Start your spring flower shopping early!!! We will also have the ever so popular Game area for kids and Cake Walk!!! We have added an event for the middle school age and older, with an Escape Room. This will be sponsored by Sleuth Escape Rooms. Explore all items on the Silent Auction and place your bids. We already have traditional Nebraskan meal for four prepared and hosted by Fr. Paul on the auction block. As always we have a delicious dinner including Traeger grilled pork, baked potatoes, salads and desserts galore.
$8 for adults
$5 for children ages 6-12
5 and under are FREE
Look for information to come on pre-ordering your dinner tickets.
Another big part of our SpringFest is our ticket sales for our Quilt and Grand Prize Drawings. We had success last year with having an order form to purchase your tickets. We will also have the ticket packets that will be available. All tickets and order forms can be filled out and returned to the church office or placed in the baskets at the church entrances on or before April 6th. Please label clearly as SpringFest and write separate checks for the quilt and the drawing. Tickets can also be purchased at the SpringFest.
Sayler Screenprinting will be onsite with Prince of Peace T-Shirts that you can purchase. We are excited to rejoice our faith to others!
There will be many opportunities to help at the SpringFest. You can help by donating food, cash, silent auction items, or Gardening treasures. You can help set-up, clean-up, serve, or participate in one of many tasks at the event. There are several ways that you can sign-up. We will be emailing this sign-up genius link (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040f45adaf2ea13-springfest/364777), you can fill out the form included with this letter, or you can sign-up using the sheets that will be at entrances of the church. Please get involved and make this the best SpringFest ever!!!
