A Mardi Gras and Lenten Message from Fr. Peter C. Weiss, S.S.J. Chief Religious Officer

January 6th marked the traditional celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany; when the three wise men came and presented their gifts to the Christ Child. For us here in New Orleans January 6th is the Feast of Kings, which begins our Mardi Gras Season. The day begins with the traditional arrival of the “King Cake” and the beginning of the Mardi Gras parade season with three parades: The Big Chiefs, Joan of Arc and Phunny Phellows.
