Celebrating Fat Tuesday

How are you celebrating Fat Tuesday this year? What a fun way to kick off Lent with your kids if you have children or for yourself. This year we will be attending the Young Catholic Professionals monthly meeting/ speaker event in Dallas at which Mardi Gras themed food and drinks will be served. Our little one will be feasting on her first tastes of baby food, per the Pediatrician, rice cereal mixed with peaches or pears. Next year I hope to give her King Cake!

In any case be sure to celebrate and prepare yourself for the season of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday. If you are wondering why Catholics get Ashes on the forehead on Ash Wednesday well it's because it's a "an ancient penitential practice and symbolizes our dependence upon God's mercy and forgiveness."
