http://www.holidays.net/mardigras/story.htm and http://www.eastjeffersonparish.com/culture/MARDIGRA/HISTORY/history.htm Answers this question. To put it bluntly, no. Mardi gras has never been held anywhere in the US but New Orleans. Its history dates back to early Europe but the celebration we know today was started in New Orleans and no other city celebrated it. Hope that helps. Mardi Gras is celebrated in Mobile, New Orleans and other Gulf Coast cities.This festive event was started in Mobile and according to some accounts, dates back to 1703. The celebration was originally called Boef Gras (Fat Beef).

However, this temple is currently under renevation and isn't expected to open until late 2010.

Yes. Throughout the Bible you can read that nations, tribes, families had leaders. Then after the formation of the church the church also had leaders.

In the first years of the Church Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist were all celebrated in the same ceremony; this is how it is still done in Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy and Eastern Catholicism. As the Church grew, and presbyters rather than bishops were local leaders, the Church in the West began to separate Confirmation from Baptism. Confirmation was celebrated in each parish by the bishop as a sign of unity.

If you mean Georgia (USA) it was under Royal (English) Rule. The primary church was Anglican. If you mean Georgia (the region on the east side of the Black Sea) the primary church would be Russian Orthodox.
