Windthorst, TX. - Food, games and an auction marked a special occasion for Saint Mary's Parish of Windthorst Sunday.

The church hosted a celebration to mark it's 121st birthday.

Past and present church members came out to reconnect with friends and enjoy some family fun for a good cause.

There was a game room for kids of all ages, a bake sale and door prizes.

All the money raised today will help the church renovate the parish hall kitchen.

Organizers say the annual event is their biggest fundraiser of the year but it means a lot more to the members.

 "It's nice to just come back and see old classmates and just partake in all the fun activities we have here," says Youth Director Shelly Schlumpf.

The left over money will help with general operations cost.
