Every year, the Sheil Catholic community gathers for a Mardi Gras celebration. All proceeds support Sheil's Catholic campus ministry at Northwestern University.

Save the Date

Sheil will host our annual Mardi Gras celebration on Saturday, February 18, 2023! Save the date and plan to join us in person or via livestream that evening. Watch for invitations in the mail the first week of January or purchase tickets online starting in early January.

Donate an Item to the Silent Auction

Want to support Sheil in 2023 by donating an item for the silent auction? Need some ideas? Consider: Gift certificates for a local restaurant, golf course, or massage. Tickets to a sports game, theater production, or museum. Pieces of art, a week's stay at a vacation home, or airline tickets. Have a special talent? Perhaps you'll donate your time to play piano for someone's special occasion, cook a grand meal for guests in someone's home, or sketch someone's portrait!

Contact Teresa Corcoran, Director of Operations, to share what you'd like to donate to support Sheil's campus Catholic ministry. You can reach her at 847.328.4648 or via email here.
