Bring your cowboy boots and your appetite Saturday for the annual Mardi Gras Festival and Parade in downtown St. Marys.
People of faith have many things in common, but one thing in particular stands out — their love of gathering together and sharing a meal.
It's difficult to find a church or synagogue where people don't at least occasionally get together for a potluck dinner, a fellowship meal or even hold a celebration built around food and drink. Their example for this comes organically. In the Bible, food, ritual and fellowship are interwoven.
Throughout the New Testament, Jesus is continually found breaking bread with others. Beginning with the wedding feast at Cana, readers find him in ministry at the dinner table, figuratively speaking.
Two meals, the Last Supper and the feeding of the 5,000 are recorded in all four gospels. Then we find him eating with Levi the tax collector and his nefarious friends in three of first four books of the New Testament. The feeding of the 4,000 is recorded in both Matthew and Mark, and in Luke Jesus is found having two meals with Pharisees, a dinner with Zacchaeus and a post-resurrection meal on Emmaus Road.
The Council of Catholic Women at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church has received the message that breaking bread with one's neighbors is a great way to break down walls and raise money for their causes.
From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the St. Francis Xavier Parish Hall, behind the church, the group will hold its 27th International Food Tasters Festival.
