Mardi Gras:

St. George celebrates the beginning of Lent with its Annual Mardi Gras Dinner.  This is a forty-day period of fasting and soul-searching when faithful parishioners say goodbye to meat, fish, alcohol and other fleshly pleasures.

Parishioners and guests come to enjoy an evening of dancing, celebrating, and having a good time before Lent.  A traditional chicken dinner with macaroni and kapama sauce is served along with a live and silent auction of various donated items such as a wine tasting for eight people from Dimitri Wine and Spirits; Chicago Bears tickets and a Green Bay Packers package; Family Waterpark Weekend in Dubuque; Shedd Aquarium tickets; and a private suite for a River Bandits game.
