The Party of the Year
Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 25, 6pm By Fr. Steve Keplinger
Don’t miss it! It’s almost here, the party of the year. The GSP Mardi-Gras party has easily become our biggest blowout of the year, an extravaganza
of exploding excitement on the last night before the season of Lent begins.
First, there is the food, cooked and served by the men of the parish, who have become quite adept at preparation over the years. Pancakes, of course, but so much more. Eggs, bacon, sausage, veggie everything, desserts, and on and on.
Then there is the music. Live New Orleans jazz to knock your socks off. One year, the lights exploded during “When the Saints....”
Most importantly, the indulgences. Get one to save your soul before it is too late.
And the dancing, the line dance to end all line dances. Finally, the BONFIRE! We will burn last year’s palms in a spectacular end to Epiphany. Those same ashes will be placed on your head the next day on Ash Wednesday.
