It’s Coming Soon! Fastnacht 2017

On February 26th at 3:00 pm, the last Sunday before Ash Wednesday and the commencement of the Lenten observance, the St. Matthew’s Family celebrates Fastnacht, a festival akin to Mardi Gras.  Fastnacht starts with an afternoon of feasting and fellowship, is followed by games and a carnival for the kids, and then capped off with a talent (?) show!  This year we will be embarking on an exciting journey together, because our Fastnacht theme is Around the World in 80 Minutes.  The choirs and SCS classes will be working on their song and dance numbers, but look for a sign-up sheet if you’d like to share your talent in the show. The food will be potluck with an ethnic flair so you may sign up to bring an international dish or purchase our usual pizzas – from Italy, of course! So slap on your sombrero or fez, don your kimono or lederhosen, pop on those Dutch wooden shoes or Cossack boots and get ready for an afternoon of fun as we zip Around the World in 80 Minutes!
