Our church had a Mardi Gras celebration between the Masses today. They had masks, beads, food and fun music for everyone to enjoy. We love this church because of the family activities that they have available for everyone to take part in. Everyone feels included even though we might not know everyone! There was a 'decorate your own mask' section for the kids and the adults had a chance to check out all the ministries and outreach opportunities available to volunteer for. It was a great time. The best part of it, according to the kids, was the donuts and juice...but I did see them having a lot of fun with the masks, boas and beads on the tables. And we did bring a bunch of them home with us.
