Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras) 2016 at Imago Dei

In Uncategorized by Imago Dei

On February 9, Imago Dei Chaplain Rev. Susan Anderson-Smith led our scholars in the traditional Mardi Gras observances of eating King Cake and burning last year’s Palm Sunday palms at Amory Park to make ashes for Ash Wednesday. Strings of carnival beads were another traditional touch as everyone said “goodbye to the flesh” and prepared for the beginning of Lent.
