St. Peter’s Church and Muenster Oktoberfest Outing: Oct. 8, 2022

  • 8: 30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022
  • Meet at UNT Health Science Center, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd. (View a Google map to Muenster and nearby Lindsay.)
  • St. Peter’s Catholic Church and Muenster Oktoberfest
  • Tripods are allowed in the church.
  • Photos of St. Peter’s by John Nixon.

We will depart from our meeting room parking lot at UNT Health Science Center at 8:30 a.m. and travel about 1.5 hours to the St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 424 Main Street, Lindsay, and begin taking photos around 10 a.m.

Construction started on St. Peter’s in 1899 and the church opened in 1903. A tornado destroyed the church in 1913, but it was rebuilt in 1919. Restoration began in 2009 at a cost of $4.9 million.

There is currently nothing scheduled at the church that morning, but we are required to contact the church on Oct. 6 to make sure there is no church activity that would interfere with our plans. If a conflict develops, we will announce this at our Oct. 6 program meeting.

Following the church photos, we will travel about 10 miles to 301 N. Ash Street in Muenster, to the Muenster Oktoberfest where we will photograph everything from pumpkins to musicians to a stein hoisting contest. There is a $5 admission fee and numerous food booths for the noon meal. Oktoberfest ends at midnight.  

Muenster was settled in 1889 by German immigrants. There are buildings with German-style architecture, murals, Fischer’s Market and the Muenster Museum with its vintage farm equipment.

The Club asks that participants observe Covid-19 precautions suitable for their circumstances.
