Feast Day Celebration Tonight!

Dress in white and bring flowers to lay at her statue.

Prayer Service 6:30 p.m. at Old Ursuline Convent Chapel

We’re looking forward to honoring St. Joan of Arc on the day of her death with a brief but beautiful prayer service planned by Krewe member Jaymie Stuart Wolfe, in the equally inspiring setting of the Old Ursuline Convent Chapel (1100 Chartres St., map). Get there early so you can check out the stunning painting of St. Joan brought by the original French Ursuline nuns! Around 6:45 p.m. we’ll walk together as a procession from the chapel, about two blocks to the statue.

7 p.m. Statue and Frank’s Restaurant

Around 7 p.m., we’ll gather briefly at the golden “Joanie on the Pony” statue to say a few words and place our flowers, then we’ll take our party across the street to Frank’s Italian restaurant (933 Decatur, map). Frank’s has reserved the upstairs room for us, with the balcony looking out on the Joan of Arc statue, and you can each order for yourselves on separate checks from the regular Frank’s menu.  We’ll share some krewe news at Frank’s, but mostly we’ll just be socializing.

Prospective members are welcome!  This is a great kick-off for friends thinking of joining. Here’s a link to the Facebook event if you want to invite people that way.
