Over 500 parishioners and friends attended Good Shepherd’s Second Annual Oktoberfest. A good time was had by all at this family event that featured German fare, live music on two stages and fun for all ages. The kids enjoyed creating a craft, playing games and dancing, while their parents shopped the silent auction tables, and had an adult beverage or two.
The live entertainment featured Good Shepherd’s favorite accordionist, Don Devous and co on the main stage, and instrumentalist Mike Wasson played outside in the pavilion.
Our creative ministries and parishioners provided 52 items including a Fredricksburg getaway weekend basket, handmade wreaths and jewelry, and suite tickets to a Dallas Mavericks game, just to name a few. The many talents and gifts of our parishioners were on display at this special auction. Over $4,000 was raised at the silent auction and the proceeds will be used to support Good Shepherd’s Outreach ministries.
Each of Good Shepherd’s hospitality ministries participated in this event and took ownership of a piece of the event.
