2019 Mardi Gras is in the books…now it’s time for LENT!

BSS Celebrates Mardi Gras (/ˈmɑːrdi ˌɡrɑː/), or Fat Tuesday, which refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday (known as Shrove Tuesday).

Today, our Middle School students celebrated Mardi Gras in true New Orleans style right down to the King Cake!   The day started off with a surprise visit from our favorite Mardi Gras King, Mr. Clint, and ended with an indulgence of King Cakes!   Now that the celebrations are over, we are ready to kick off our Lenten Journey.

JOIN US tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, as we start our Journey. Over the next 40 days, in preparation of Easter, we will engage in the acts of fasting, praying, and almsgiving which involves giving to others as an act of virtue, either materially or in the sense of providing capabilities (or acts of service) free.

Take a moment to consider what your Lenten Journey will look like.

Mass times for the distribution of Ashes are 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church.
