Love Laid Down Revival in Crowley
There will be a Love Laid Down Revival Friday through Sunday with The Tennessee Fire Team travel ministry giving messages and music.
The Lenten season has begun, and parishioners of St. Anthony of Padua gathered at the church to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday.
Kathleen Peters, a parishioner, said, “Ash Wednesday is for the future. God is good. God is very, very good.”

The intersection of Walnut and 2nd streets in Eunice filled with a Mardi Gras crowd that reached an estimated 5,000 people. The crowd pictured was in front of the stage as Paul Daigle and Cajun Gold performed at about 1:30 p.m. The day’s festivities began at 6 a.m. when the Eunice Mardi Gras Association opened registration for its run through the country that includes a parade through downtown Eunice at about 3 p.m. More photographs from the Mardi Gras in Eunice are on Pages 5 and 6.

The Eunice Mardi Gras tradition stayed alive with thousands of people filling the city’s downtown participating in parades, parade-watching, dancing, shopping and eating.
Interim Mayor Scott Fontenot said it was the biggest crowd he had seen in the downtown.
