Mardi Gras Celebration

On Tuesday, the seminary students, faculty, and staff celebrated Mardi Gras before entering into a day of quiet and reflection for Ash Wednesday.  The celebration included a car float contest, field games, and a trivia contest in the evening.

The photos below share some of the entries in the car float contest.

 This entry featured an abundance of flowers and a decorated statue of the Virgin Mary.

  One group of seminarians enlisted the help of the local police department for their entry.

 Abbot Peter Eberle also took part in this entry. 

 Luis Madgrial (right) played the part of an injured bystander in the skit.

 The seminary faculty and staff combined academic regalia, cooking equipment, and Mardi Gras masks and beads for a unique entry.

 A sign on the back of their pickup shared the theme of the entry by the seminary faculty and staff.
