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.
