It was Mardi Gras time at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Peotone on February 13, where the parish’s Council of Catholic Women hosted their 47th Annual Shrove Tuesday Beef Dinner. Also known as Fat Tuesday, it takes on a Mardi Gras theme and marks the final day  of feasting, as the solemn season of Lent begins. Some of the dozens of volunteers working the event included Pat Patterson, Marge Harms, Mary Lou Cooper, Maura Culver, and teen volunteer David Reidy. With them is Fr. Tomy, a visiting priest and special guest. Not pictured is the event’s very able chairman, Sherry Parker. –photo by Karen Haave
