Marylake hosts annual Mardi Gras Mass

As the winter continues to roll along, it is time to start thinking about our Lenten and Easter preparations. For the past 5 years, the Augustinians at Marylake, will be hosting their annual Mardi Gras Mass at Marylake.
This year’s Mardi Gras Mass is on Saturday, March 2 at 5 p.m. If you are not familiar with this type of Mass, you will truly be delighted by the upbeat nature of the music throughout the eucharistic celebration. The music for this pre-Lenten Mass is done in the style of Dixieland Jazz, which is traditional to the U.S. deep south. The musical accompaniment will be provided by the Red Peppers Dixieland Jazz Band and the vocals will be provided by The Cardinal Carter High School (Aurora) Concert Choir. Everyone will be invited to sing, clap and dance along.
After the Mass, the Red Peppers will continue to play along with a short concert and complimentary traditional Mardi Gras Shrove pancakes, sausages and King Cake will be served.
Bring the whole family, especially the young kids who would really enjoy this lively eucharistic celebration!
By the way, there are two questions often asked: Do you have to pay admission or make reservations for the Mass? The answer is no to both. Does this Mass fulfill our Sunday obligation? The answer is a resounding yes. You can sleep in the next morning!
Organizers look forward to seeing you at the Mardi Gras Mass at Marylake. For more information, you can contact them at 905-833-5368, e-mail them at or visit
