BECKLEY - Members of a Raleigh County church are gearing up for their annual Mardi Gras celebration.

St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Beckley will be hosting a party next Tuesday night from 5 to 8 p.m. The Mardi Gras celebration will include a Cajun dinner and a live jazz band.

Priest-in-charge Rev. Jon White said he is looking forward to interacting with the community. "I just think it's a great opportunity to get people together and to have some fun and to hear some great music and eat some great food. Just enjoy each other's company," White said.

The cost at the door for the Mardi Gras party is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages six to twelve and free for children ages five and under. Anyone wanting more information can call the church at 304-253-9672 or visit
