March 5 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in Mission Hall
For those of you unfamiliar with it, Shrove Tuesday (also known as Fat Tuesday or by its French name Mardi Gras) is celebrated on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. According to
Ash Wednesday. Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter, was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Anglo‐Saxon Christians went to confession and were “shriven” (absolved from their sins). Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on
the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients.”
A free-will offering will be welcome at the door to help defray the cost of the food.
Hope to see you
