The Ministry Kicks off Mardi Gras!

The Ministry of Caring celebrated Fat Tuesday on Sunday this year, after a wintry Mother Nature pushed their Mardi Gras celebration to Valentines Day. But the Irish Society of New Castle County didn’t skip a beat and was ready for the weekend revelers who danced to live Zydeco music by Box Turtle Bob and the Bayou Brothers and an opening act by Bean Soup Project.  Guests also helped themselves to authentic New Orleans cuisine from Fat Rick’s BBQ, and they were delighted several spirits vendors sponsored the event. Jennifer and Patrick Callahan chaired the Ministry of Caring Lenten fundraiser, which will help support the House of Joseph II for formerly homeless persons with AIDS.
