Mass and Second Line Sunday

Sunday, January 1st: Mass, Second Line and Brunch

Only one ticket left for the brunch, but all are welcome to join us for the mass and second line!

  • 9 a.m. Mass at Saint Louis Cathedral (map)
  • 10 a.m. Second Line with the Soul Heirs Brass Band (4 blocks from Cathedral to Joan statue)
  • 10:30 a.m. (ish) Brunch at Market Cafe at the foot of the Joan statue once the second line arrives (buy a ticket)
  • Dress: Second line spirit, Krewe colors blue and gold, krewe gear. Mass-appropriate!  Medieval inspiration is always welcome but most adults do not costume for this.

9 a.m. Mass 

  • The Krewe will have reserved seats toward the front. When you arrive, hang out at the back of the church near the entrance doors and wait with the Krewe.  Look for the group dressed in our krewe colors, blue and gold. Let the usher know you’re with us.
  • The Krewe will process up to our reserved seats when the usher cues us.
  • Please represent the Krewe well by arriving on time and looking appropriate.
  • Immediately after the mass ends, the ushers will cue us to process out behind the priest (Father Phillip Landry), and on the Cathedral steps he will briefly bless the handmade wooden swords our young Maid of Honor will hand out in the parade.
    • This means you need to anticipate the worship endpoint and gather your purse and jacket in advance for a smooth exit. Plus you’d hate to be too slow to catch the blessing.

10 a.m. Second Line with the Soul Heirs Brass Band 

After mass, the Soul Heirs Band will lead us in a jam and second line 4 blocks from the Cathedral to the Joan of Arc statue. 

10:30 a.m. Buffet Brunch at Market Cafe (if you bought tickets)
