Religious Education Casino Night

Feb 18

About 100 of our religious education students, their parents, and catechists just celebrated Mardi Gras. After games and crafts and cake (lots of cake), we processed outside, led by Tim on the trombone and Tom on the trumpet, to burn last year's palms. Deacon Joe led us in prayer. Michael and Ryan will grind the ashes when they cool. Ascension is ready for Ash Wednesday!
