Support the Benedictine Festival

Benedictine Festival at St. Paul's Monastery on July 10 and 11, 2021

Help make the Benedictine Festival a Success!

In addition to joining us at the Benedictine Festival on July 10 from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., there are several other ways you can support this community event:

Volunteer: We need volunteers to lead several of the games and activities on the day of the festival. At this time, the list of activities that you may volunteer for is still being determined, but it may include mini golf, cornhole and other games; raffle tables; etc.

Cakes: We are having a cake walk, which means we need cakes for our winners! Because of COVID-19, we are not able to accept homemade cakes or desserts. Instead, please consider donating a cake (or gift cards to purchase a cake) from a bakery or eatery for this event. If you are physically donating the cake(s), we will accept delivery of these the week of the event (July 7-10), and delivery time will be set up with Jennifer Pozanc ahead of time. Gift cards can be mailed to: St. Paul’s Monastery, Mission Advancement, 2675 Benet Road, St. Paul, MN 55109. 

Raffle: The festival will have a raffle fundraiser where people can buy tiered raffle tickets in hopes of winning various prizes. For the raffle prizes, we are in need of donations/gifts of new items, such as the following:

  • Small kitchen appliances – Keurig machines, cutlery sets, air fryers, grills, etc.
  • Décor – Picture frames, decorative shelving, candles, etc.
  • Wine and alcohol – This is always a popular item. If you can donate bottles of wine or other liquor, thank you! Gift cards also accepted!
  • Experiences – If you are in a position where you can offer the use of your cabin, a weekend on your boat, a retreat or vacation experience, we would love to be able to offer these and raffle as part of our fundraising.

Donate: If you would like to support the event financially, you can submit a donation to St. Paul's Monastery below. We are grateful for your generosity!

Your help is greatly appreciated on any of these donations of items or time. All of our volunteers and donors are very dear to the entire Community—know that this event would be even better with your participation.

Please contact Jennifer Pozanc at jpozanc@stpaulsmonastery.org or 651-269-4400 if you can help in any of these areas.
