Shrove Tuesday 2018

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
6:30 - 8:00 pm

     Join us on Shrove Tuesday for our annual pre-Lenten pancake supper!  For hundreds of years, pancake supers in parish churches have ushered in the Lenten Season.  Always the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, Shrove Tuesday hosts a day of celebration before the ashes mark our foreheads in reminder of our mortal nature and need for God's redemption and grace.

     Pancake suppers are a favorite tradition with a practical purpose dating back for centuries.  At the beginning of Lent, you get rid of all fat, flour and eggs to start your fast.  All of these things were mixed  together and that's how we ended up with pancakes.

     There will be pancakes, bacon, fruit, and more.  Our youth group will be hosting bingo and other fun events throughout the evening.  All are invited - and don't forget to bring in your palms so we can burn them to make ashes for our Ash Wednesday liturgies.

     Confessions will be heard in the Chapel on Shrove Tuesday (2/13) from 12-1 pm, and on Ash Wednesday (2/14) from 11-11:45am and from 6-6:45pm, or by appointment (contact Father Tripp).
