The seminarians hosted their annual Mardi Gras Party this evening. The theme was “Casino Night.” The junior class was responsible for organizing the event. It was a lot of fun and seemed to be a big success. There was good food, games, and the chance to relax and catch up before Lent begins.
Pray for the seminarians, they begin Lent with a three day silent retreat! The monks also have Ash Wednesday as a Day of Recollection. I will have Ash Wednesday Mass on the campus of Northwest Missouri State and noon.
