Winterfest at St. Columba

Winterfest is our annual craft, art, food, musical, and friendship kickoff to the Christmas season.

Winterfest is coming!

Our 17th annual Craft and Food Festival will take place on Saturday, November 20, in the gymnasium and cafeteria, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We will showcase our famous “Dollar Tree” Our spectacular “Raffle Drawing” Our delicious baked goods, and vendors are back! You have a choice to Dine-In or Take-Out food from our kitchen including a variety homemade soups, chili, Haluski, Pierogies, Steph’s subs, BBQ, Mac & cheese, pizza & hotdogs and once again offering Monsignor Lawrence’s Ham & Bean soup. Also, SPECIAL this year – “Father Mowery’s Lasagna” is on the menu.
Another new addition, children of all ages can “ Stuff & Dress” their own animal!
Calling all “Christmas Bakers”: we need all sorts of Christmas treats for our baked goods table (fudge, tea breads, cookies, candies, snack items, pies and cakes). The raffle drawing would appreciate Lotto Scratch Offs or gift cards (connect with Ines at 570-387-8240). You can help the kitchen with gift cards to Giant and Weis (they can be brought to the Church Office or returned in the Student’s Family Folder).
We have 2 RAFFLES this year – #1 Set of our Tuesday Crew’s Decorated Lantern Posts & Corn Hole game and #2 Handmade Quilt with Handmade Quilt Rack & Hand Crocheted Rug/Wall Hanging – We will be selling chances in the cafeteria after Masses and on the day of Winterfest.
In the cafeteria, our Tuesday Crew will also have a table or two of craftsman-designed Charcuterie boards, benches, and many creative Christmas offerings for sale. Something for everyone on your list.
Our Parish School will be also represented in the cafeteria.
Parking is available in five parish lots including the new large area just off Iron Street. Volunteers are needed: please consider helping! Proceeds benefit St. Columba School. You can call the school (570-784-5932) or the church office (570-784-0801) to volunteer. Thank you.

Mark your calendar – WINTERFEST will be held on Saturday, November 20, 2021 (9 a.m. – 2 p.m.) in the school gym, hallways, and cafeteria.
We will be in need of cookies, fudge, candies, pies and tea cakes, etc. plus a variety of soups so please start looking through your recipes!
We are also asking for donations of gift cards and lottery tickets to be used in our raffles.
