Shrove Tuesday, on Sunday!

Pancakes for lunch? Yum!  Celebrate Shrove Tuesday on Sunday, February 15th following worship.  In Christian tradition, the season of Lent was a time to give up luxuries.  So, the day before Lent began– always a Tuesday–was the last day to indulge in rich foods such as meat, butter, eggs and milk.  It became a custom on Shrove Tuesday to use these rich foods and to make pancakes and celebrate.  (Think Mardi Gras!)  Come for a pancake lunch and some fun pancake games.  Donations accepted—$5 per person or $15 per family.
