The Mardi Gras team has begun working on this year’s event which is on Tuesday, February 12. Please put this date on your calendar and join fellow parishioners at this great mid-winter party. Also, please consider donations of items, parties, vacation homes, services and financial contributions. Thank you to all who have contacted us so far. The money we raise for out mission trips will make a positive difference in the lives of others around the world and at home. The mission teams in 2013 will go to Haiti, Cuba, Kentucky, Honduras, West Virginia, New Orleans, and the East End of Richmond.
