Calling all Mardi Gras revelers

2012-shrove-tuesday-04It’s time to feast and celebrate on the day known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday or the “Cathedral’s secret-recipe, pancake-bread-pudding day.” Mark your calendar to join us February 12 from 6–8 p.m. in Reynolds Hall for the long-standing tradition of merrymaking before we head into the season of Lent.

Catch beads, have your face painted and dance to the sounds of live Zydeco music. Brighten up the festivities by wearing your best Mardi Gras costume, beads, mask or colors (purple symbolizing justice, gold symbolizing power and green symbolizing faith). The meal includes pancakes, pancake bread pudding with rum sauce, sausage, bacon, fresh-cut fruit and refreshing beverages. We also need revelers to join our Mardi Gras krewe, helping in shifts to decorate, cook, serve food and clean up.

Sign up in the cloister starting Sunday, January 20, to attend the event, and sign up in the cloister or online to join the krewe. Event cost: $7 adults, $5 children (12 & under), $25 family maximum. For more information, contact Melissa White (713-590-3302).
