In order to put away the sweets and fat for Lent, we will be hosting a dessert Mardi Gras celebration complete with champagne, sparkling cider, and coffee. We are asking the pastry chefs in the Parish to bring their best, most sinful desserts. An ice cream bar will be set up for children and ice cream lovers. All are welcome to make an Alleluia banner to resurrect on Easter. Promptly at 6:45pm, the festivities will culminate with singing and a procession to the candle-lit church where we will enter into the stillness of Lent. Ashes will be administered to anyone who wishes. There will also be stations for healing and quiet prayer. The wafting strains of instrumental music will provide the perfect atmosphere for prayer. Please bring your family and friends!
