Christ Church held its annual Oktoberfest celebration on Thursday, October 24, 2013. German beer, music, bratwurst, potato salad and sauerkraut (many varieties) were enjoyed by a large crowd that filled the parish hall. Martin Luther once again made his annual appearance, and even presented Deacon Patricia Marks with a signed picture that congratulated her on her ordination.

A full set of photographs taken by Deacon Patricia Marks and Julia Ariail is available here. Selections from that group of photographs are displayed below.
