Conclude the winter series on Fat Tuesday by enjoying fellowship with your new friends! Celebrate Mardi Gras together before our Lenten fasting begins the following day on Ash Wednesday.
The festivities begin with Mass at 6:30pm in the church followed by a potluck dinner social in the Basil Moreau Room (church basement). For dinner, Cajun dishes of jambalaya, seafood gumbo, and red beans & rice will be provided from Chicory Cafe. If you can, bring a side dish to share and your favorite beverage, but don't let that stop you from coming. Feel free to drop off food before Mass.
Mardi Gras Directions: Mass will be held in St. Joseph Church, located at 226 N Hill St in South Bend. The party will take place in the Basil Moreau Room, located directly underneath the church. The stairs to the basement can be accessed either from inside the church through the sacristy or from the external door at the rear of the church building.
