The Parish of Saints Joachim and Anne » Julifest

Please note this information is for 2015. Stay tuned for 2016.

Dear Parishioners,

Plans for the 2015 Saints Joachim and Anne Festival celebrations are well underway. Be sure to reserve July 24 – 26 for Julifest at St. Mark’s and August 16, for the Marystown festival. Both events are a wonderful expression of our faith community by providing fellowship, friendship, food and of course fun!

From ages 8 and up, there is something for everyone. With so many opportunities, you are sure to find something that fits in your schedule. We even have opportunities on the days leading up to the festival and the day after each festival.

Please take a moment to fill out one or both of the volunteer sign-up sheets. Once completed, they can be returned to the parish office (Parish of St. Joachim and Anne, 2700 17th Ave E. Shakopee) or placed in the collection basket at weekend Masses. If you would like to help in a specific area, complete the form and return it as soon as possible. The committee people would like start filling in their workers lists so the deadline for the volunteer forms is Monday, May 11, 2015.

The Julifest Committee greatly appreciates all of the work that everyone puts forth to make these days the best of the year. If you should have any questions or comments, please feel free to call:


Be sure to fill out a worker’s sign up sheet. Every individual over 12 is asked to pitch in and help. You will be assigned a shift before or during the festival; please consider helping and please follow up on your commitment.
