DePaul’s Meet Me at the Mission: Vincentian Heritage Initiative hosted a Mardi Gras with Vincentians event at the DePaul Vincentian Residence on Tuesday, March 5. Students were invited to have discussions, dinner and dessert with Vincentian brothers and priests to celebrate the holiday of Mardi Gras.

Meet Me at the Mission welcomed Father Ranjan Kumar Lima, a Vincentian priest from India. He spoke to students about how he decided to become a priest and the wild journey he took to get to where he is now. Following Ranjan’s talk, the feasting and conversing began as students and brothers co-mingled to learn new things and hear different perspectives about a wide variety of topics.
