Believed to be a first-of-its-kind event in Tucson, Dove of Peace Lutheran Church’s annual Mardi Gras French Quarter Jazz Mass has become a much-anticipated event. There is a worship service at 11:00 am, immediately followed by king cake–both free. A free-will offering will be taken.
The service features the professional ensemble, The Original Wildcat Jass Band, with music beginning at 10:45 am. The popular service is filled with Dixieland style jazz music to be enjoyed and sung to, including When the Saints Go Marching In. Dove’s famous church ladies will serve traditional king cake. This event is free and open to the public.
