Catholics show off their talents at annual Act-oberfest

The sixth annual Act-oberfest variety show drew a crowd of about 300 people to Sauk Centre High School Sept. 22. About a dozen acts entertained the audience with songs, skits and comedy to raise money for youth activities in the Diocese of St. Cloud. The event was organized by the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of St. Cloud and co-sponsored by the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women.
