On September 24, we will be celebrating 88 years of Fr. Joe Mattern’s fine-tuned life with an afternoon of music, fun, food and joy - rising up Fr Joe and his legacy of the Casa Esther Catholic Worker House in Omro. The afternoon kicks off at 1pm at Father Carr’s Place2Be in Oshkosh.

We welcome you and your family to join us.  The event is FREE; however, as always, a love offering to support Casa Esther’s continued work in our community is welcome. You can pre-register (and help us with our food count planning) at: www.TinyURL.com/party4joe

In addition to Fr. Joe sharing his musical talent on every instrument he plays, there will be other musical friends dropping by, including local and national renowned composer and pianist John Harmon. Members of the Big Band Reunion, the jazz band Fr. plays with regularly at Cranky Pat’s Pizza in Neenah, will also be joining us. Dr. Marty Robinson, Professor of Trumpet and Jazz at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will be our MC for the afternoon.

 

Additional excitement will include story-telling about Fr. Joe and the impact he and Casa Esther has had on the lives of so many in the Omro, Oshkosh and Fox Valley area – and across the country.

 

There will be plenty of Mexican food – Joe’s favorite.  …and, a great silent auction and door prizes galore. Festivities will conclude by 4pm.

Father Carr’s Place2Be is at 1062 North Koeller Street in Oshkosh.

 

We hope we will see you for this very special gathering on September 24th.
