St. Paul Kirchenfest 2015 - August 22nd & 23rd

“Kirchenfest”, which is German for “Church Festival”, is a two-day celebration in which the people of St. Paul Parish share their warmth and friendliness with friends and visitors alike! Let this be our invitation to you to come and join us at our 45th Annual Kirchenfest!


A little morning exercise… what an ideal way to start the weekend! The 5K Strassenlauf Run starts at 8:00 a.m. and the 2K Walk/Run starts at 9:00 a.m.


Enjoy a bike ride on Sunday morning by taking part in the 5th Annual KirchenRide!
