The Annual Homemade Apple Strudel Bake sponsored by Sts. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church in Shiner is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13.
This project, now in it 24th year, turns out strudels by the thousands, with more than 2,800 made last year.
The unbelievable task of hand-rolling each pastry is completed in one day, but only with the help of hundreds of volunteer parishioners, as well as friends of the parish, who come to help at the event.
Included in the group of volunteers will be Sister Ann Bosco Nguyen who is assigned to Sts. Cyril & Methodius Church in Shiner. Nguyen is a member of the Vietnamese Dominican Community, of Houston. Even though Nguyen has been at the Shiner assignment for three years, 2009 was the first year her busy schedule allowed her to help at the parish fundraiser. She quickly learned the art of rolling the soft, pliable strudel dough to a paper thin consistency and plans to be among the volunteers to help with this year's event.
Strudel patrons are asked to place their order by Thursday, Nov. 11. For pick-up in Shiner, place your order by calling 361-594-2361 or 361-594-2262.
