German Games at St. John the Baptist ‘Gildehaus’ Parish showcase heritage and chivalry


The hills were alive with the sound of music, yodeling and cheering as St. John the Baptist "Gildehaus" Parish in Villa Ridge celebrated its second annual German Games June 23.

The games marked the vigil of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist and showcased the area's deep German roots. Dozens of parish volunteers prepared and staffed the event, and a large crowd of spectators gathered on the hill overlooking the parish's baseball field.
