Join the Loyola Institute for Ministry for an online webinar titled "Beads and Bodies: A Mardi Gras Spirituality for New Orleans and Beyond."
Mardi Gras is often considered a secular event, not associated with faith.In fact, carnival has deep religious roots. LIM Director Tom Ryan, Ph.D., will present Mardi Gras from a faith perspective, and will look at its place in the liturgical year and its prophetic function. He will also point out how it reflects the Christian commitment to the goodness of creation, celebration, and community.
