Die Heilige Messe - The kickoff to Germanfest!

Today Germanfest was kicked off with Die Heilige Messe at our church, St. Peter's, followed by Kostrizer, Bitburger, brats, warm German potato salad, cherry kuchen, and sauerkraut.

I look forward to the German Mass every year because the Mannerchor-Damenchor comes to sing, and everything is in German (except the Homily) which is so awesome to take in. It reminds me of being in Munich, but I loved it even before we went there. It's much better now, too, because I can understand a bit of it since I began taking German language lessons.

Get your dirndls and lederhosen's time for a week of German fun!
"Heilig" by Franz Schubert - this is what we heard at Mass today. Beautiful, isn't it?
