Fall Festival 2017

Festival News!

50/50 Raffle Tickets.  Orders are being taken in the back of church after all Masses.  You may also purchase them at the Parish Office during regular business hours.  Each package is $25.00 and will include 30 tickets-22 for each drawing, all weekend long!   Plus, an extra ticket for each 9pm drawing (three total), PLUS, an additional five bonus tickets for the 9pm drawings (1-Friday, 2-Saturday, and 2-Sunday)!

Dream Raffle is still in need of items to fill the baskets.  If you are interested in donating, please call the Parish Office, or stop by.  We will take any new item that you wish to donate.  We are able to create wonderful themed baskets from all the great items we get from you, your family members, and your friends.  Gift cards and monetary donations are always a great idea! 

Volunteer Sign-Up Sheets will be in the back of church beginning this weekend.  Take a minute to stop in the back of church to look them over.  Please sign up to help with something.  Even if it’s for an hour or two, or for the whole weekend!  We are all in this together.  It is our one big fundraiser of the year.  Please give of your time and talent, every little bit will help!  The sign-up sheets will be out only until all slots are filled.  Once they are filled, you will no longer be able to sign up for that area.  If you can, sign up for two areas just in case one area needs a little extra help.

Advanced Ride Wrist Bands are now on sale in the back of church after all Masses.  They are also available to purchase in the Parish Office during regular business hours (through 5:00 p.m. Thursday, September 7, 2017).

The tickets prices are as follows:

$12-1 day band (can be used any one of the three days)

$33-all three day Mega Wristband

If you wait and purchase wristbands the weekend of the festival at the ticket booth, they will cost $16 for a one day band, and a three day Mega band will not be available.  Save some money and get them in advance!

You may pay with cash or check (check made payable to: St. Alfred Church) for either of the items above.

The Holy Eucharist is exposed for adoration in our church every Wednesday at 7:50 a.m.  Think about spending time in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.  When we come to adoration we enter into peace with Christ.

Every Friday after our Mass, we gather for coffee and donuts in the Parish Center.  Please join us!

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Share the joy of the Catholic faith and Life! If you or someone you know, your spouse, a neighbor, or a friend are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, the St. Alfred community welcomes you to come to the R.C.I.A. program.

Do you have questions, Who is Jesus? What is prayer? Is the Word of God (scripture) meaningful for my life? What is a community of faith? Where is God in my life’s journey? The RCIA program offers a wonderful opportunity to address such questions and to “Come and See” who we are as a faith community. At the Easter Vigil we joyously celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation with the RCIA participants.

For more information please contact Kathy Operhall, Director of Religious Education at 313-291-6464 x105. We will be delighted to hear form you.
