PANCAKES AND LENT
Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday . . . whatever term you use, please join us for our annual Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 28th, from 6:00 P.M. in Taylor Hall.
Shrove Tuesday, derives its name from the phrase "to shrive," which means "to confess," and is celebrated on the eve of Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent. Pancakes are the traditional food for Shrove Tuesday because they use ingredients such as butter, sugar, eggs and milk which were traditionally “given up” during the 40 days of Lent.
All are welcome to this meal of faith, fellowship and fun. Tickets are available on Sundays at church.
To mark the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, 1st March, the Eucharist will be celebrated at 12 noon and 6.30pm, with imposition of ashes at both services as a reminder of both our humanity and mortality: “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.”
