It’s National Parent Engagement Month!

Parent and family engagement is at the heart of successful Head Start programs. When programs create opportunities for parents and family members to share their voices and contribute to the program in ways that matter to the families themselves, relationships are strengthened and child and family outcomes are reached.

For more information, visit St. Nick's Fest 2023

At St. John XXIII Parish (a united parish of St. Nicholas Church and St. Mary Church), we celebrate one of our patron saints with a full weekend event for the whole community on the first weekend of December each year.

This year, St. Nick’s Fest will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 1- 3. The church grounds turn into a wonderland of Christmas trees, greenery, crafts, Mexican food, bakery good, and more.

Start the weekend with a Visit from Bishop Nicholas and Tree Lighting Ceremony in St. Nicholas Church on Friday evening.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Craft Fair offers a great opportunity to purchase beautiful, unique gifts for adults and children. Over 70 crafters will have wares in two buildings, selling quality gift items: jewelry, knitwear, wooden bowls, pottery, and much more. All crafts are local and homemade. Delicious Mexican food, hot drinks, and more will be available for shoppers. And our famous Bakery Booth will offer fresh baked items to take home for holiday entertaining.

Also on Saturday and Sunday, a forest of over 500 trees and fresh greenery will arrive for Saturday and Sunday’s Christmas Tree and Greenery Sale! Frasers, Balsams, and Scotch Pines trees are fresh and fragrant, cut only days before they arrive. And the greenery (wreaths, roping, poinsettias) is fresh from Anton’s Greenhouses in Pleasant Prairie, WI. Trees and Greenery can be ordered ahead or purchased directly on the church grounds.
