Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday” is celebrated by many cultures around the world on the day (or some places, a week or more!) before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Christian penitential season of Lent. In a sense, Mardi Gras’ relaxed rules, feasting and playing are meant to stand in contrast to the restraint and disciplines of Lent giving us permission to revel in the gifts of creation and God’s abundance.
This evening of reflection will include some fun and traditional Mardi Gras treats but will also offer you time to think about your goals for Lent around the Benedictine tradition of bona opera or “good works.”
