On Saturday, October 1, we hope you plan to be at Clarkson Park from 6:00-10:00 pm when we’ll host “Party in the Park.”

This grownups-only fundraiser will offer fun games, great food provided by Hofherr Meat Co., beer & wine, premium beverages, and live music featuring Steely Dad (covering a wide variety of music from the Doors and Van Morrison to the Kings of Leon and Neon Trees). The evening will provide an opportunity for everyone to meet up with friends, and welcome new parishioners who have joined our parish since the beginning of the pandemic.

Proceeds from the event will go to the creation of new signage at both campuses, as well as to other parish expenses.

* Admission is $75 per person, including admission, food, and music.

* Tickets for drinks and games are $5.

* The event will also feature a 24-team Cornhole Tournament. The entry fee for the Cornhole Tournament is $50 per team; each team includes two players.

* Heads-and-tails is $20 per person.

Tickets may be purchased at the event.

If you have questions please contact Liz McGowen, 847-446-0856 ext. 108 or

The committee planning the event includes Susan and Dan Seeberg, Dona and Tom Carroll, Laurie Bauer, Chris and George Kaiser, Rebecca Wysockey, Rita Compton, Pat and Jim Dietz, Jennifer Mackey, and Liz McGowen.
