On March 5th, the SJN Youth Ministry hosted the Parish’s celebration of Fat Tuesday. The Family of Man Council handled all the food preparations while the youth and adult volunteers took care of decorating, serving and clean-up. Approximately 300 patrons attended the party and enjoyed red beans and rice, jambalaya, chicken gumbo, baked chicken and Mac & Cheese. King cake was served along with music by one of our church choirs. Brother Bob Andres again did a great job running the Knights Kitchen Krewe! Laissez les bon temps roulez!
