Our annual kermes, which takes place on Allport Street from 16th to 18th Street, has been a success over the years because of you. The volunteers are an extremely important part of our Kermes, our event would not exist without your help. As many of you know our festival runs for three days, this year it is August 12-14, and we are in need of as many volunteers as possible, especially for security and to work in the kitchen. Your involvement in our festival will once again ensure that our event is very successful. While volunteering, you will have an opportunity to socialize and meet new people, listen to music of different genres, sample meals and drinks. If you are up for a fun filled weekend, please consider doing it for a good cause and join us as we try to meet our goal of raising $50,000 from the event. You can also receive credit for service hours needed for school. Call the parish office at 312-226-7887 to sign up.
