    Fall Festival “Book Nook” Leaders Needed!

    Do you enjoy reading and love books? Every year, in preparation for the Fall Festival, St. Odilia parishioners donate dozens of bags and boxes of books for the “Book Nook.”
    After many years of service, Sharon Cardinal and Kathy Langer are stepping down as leaders in this area. They will provide step-by-step instructions, guidance, suggestions, and be of assistance at this year’s Festival. This is an ideal way to get involved at St. Odilia and meet some of the greatest volunteers in the parish. Please email the festival leadership team at fallfestival@stodilia.org

    To All Performers at St. Odilia and their Friends and Families!

    The wait is over! The St. Odilia Fall Festival Coffee House opens on Saturday September 11 from 7:30- 10:00 p.m. in the Courtyard.  Your musical talent is critical to making this night one to remember! The Coffee House needs acoustic music to make the night special - selections that are family-friendly. There will be several guitarists and other musicians on-hand to accompany you if you desire. You can also accompany yourself as well. We will have one or two rehearsals to practice songs, organize, and determine run-time and other technical items. The rehearsals will be scheduled when we have determined interest. Depending on interest, you may also be able to perform more than one song. We hope you'll consider joining us for this performance event to celebrate joy at being with each other again. Your participation can make this a truly special event.
    For more information or to express interest, please contact: Julie Quinn Kiernan jqkiernan@gmail.com  651-329-9194
