It is one of our last chances to whoop it up before beginning the discipline of Lent. The room is festively decorated for you. There will be lively entertainment and fine food. Wine and other adult beverages are available, and as Scripture says, when taken freely at the proper time, they bring joy to the heart, and good cheer and merriment (Sir 31:28). Grab ahold of this opportunity to visit with family and friends, and enjoy the music and dancing. Plan to have a great time! Thank you for coming to Mardi Gras tonight. And a special thank you for all that you are doing to strengthen the fabric of the St. Stephen’s faith community and support the many ministries of the parish. Two of the featured events this evening will be the silent and live auctions. This is all possible because of the exceptional generosity of the many donors who have shared a wide array of valuable goods and services. Thank you to all who contributed something for the auctions. Now, I invite you to take advantage of this golden opportunity. Please, look over the displays. Maybe there is something there that you will eventually need. Maybe you would like to treat yourself with something a little extra. Please, make some bids. It’s fun and exciting. Who knows what you will take home? And you will be supporting a great cause in the process! I would also like to extend my deep and sincere gratitude to all those on the Mardi Gras Committee who have planned so well and worked so hard to make this night possible. And, of course, we are all indebted to the many volunteers who have given so freely of themselves to insure that we would have a fantastic evening together tonight! Good cheer and God bless! Fr. Michael A. Van Sloun Pastor 1 We hope you will support the businesses that support our church and school through this event. In addition to all the businesses and individuals who donated items for our silent and live auctions, there are folks who have given either financial support or donations of services.

THE LIVE AUCTION NEED ITEM! Introducing THE GIVING TREE - an opportunity to give to the Church and School Need Items throughout the night! It is still important to have your help in filling these needs. By pooling all our donations we can fill some of the larger specific needs for the parish and the school. In the past the attendees of Mardi Gras have given through a Need Item Live Auction. Many needs have been fulfilled in previous years thanks to the generosity of parishioners and guests. A list of those items may be found at the bottom of this page. Instead of raising your hand to bid you can raise your hand and choose a mask off our giving tree with a designated amount and what item you would like to “buy” with your donation. Purple Masks will be a $25.00 donation. Green Masks will be a $50.00 donation. Gold Masks will be a $100.00 donation. There will be a few Feather Masks for $500.00 and $1000.00 if the mood strikes you. Each mask will have an attached card, add your bid number and place in the container. If you would like to donate a different amount (larger or smaller) towards an item, we would be very grateful for your help, and there will be some cards where you can fill out the amount. The cards that are turned in will be added to your invoice. If you are busy bidding and enjoying the evening and forget to turn in your card, you can bring it with your invoice and it can be added on to your total when you pay. The need item is a great way to donate during the night if you did not win the bid on an item you were trying for or you did not find the one thing you were looking for. This Year’s Parish Need Items: LCD Projector for the St. Paul Room, Panini Maker, Small Refrigerator and Wall Bookcase for The Refuge. $2,000.00 plus. This Year’s School Need Item: New Furniture for the Welcome Lounge across from the Gymnasium. $5,000.00 plus. We look forward to being able to help fill these needs this year. Thank you for your continued support! We hope you enjoy this year’s GIVING TREE!

It is with great joy that the 2012 Mardi Gras Committee welcomes you to our 13th annual Mardi Gras celebration!! This is the Year of the Masque and we planned a special evening with each of you in mind. We hope that this night is full of great fun, many laughs, and wonderful fellowship. We would also like to extend a special thank you, in advance, to each and every one of you for helping to make our annual Mardi Gras celebration so successful. We hope that you find many items that you ‘just have to have’ tonight, and that your bids are made from your heart. This year you may participate in the parish and school need items by purchasing a mask from our Giving Tree. We hope you will enjoy this fun way to fulfill wishes! Each year, Mardi Gras is supported by many generous donors from the parish, the school, and the community around us. It is from this wonderful generosity that we are able to provide support to the parish, the school, and the many programs that are supported by the parish. And, we sincerely thank you!! Mardi Gras takes many months of planning and numerous hours of work behind the scenes before the actual event. I would like to thank these special committee members for their unending dedication to Mardi Gras 2012. If I missed someone by name, it was inadvertent, and does not go without appreciation. This evening happens because of you…Thank YOU!
