Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

Tuesday, February 16, is Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday! Normally, we have our Parish Pancake Supper that evening. We have a feast of pancakes, sausage, bacon or ham, and other fatty foods, or eat our last bit of King Cake - before we begin our Lenten fast.

This year, all our parish wide pancake suppers together are just one more of the cancelled events in the time of pandemic. We urge you to keep the tradition in your homes, and with your family!

Make everything yourself – feast – and remember why! Don’t feel like cooking? Pick-up at Waffle House, or IHOP. Better yet, support our friends at Grace Episcopal by driving through for a box! Drive thru at Kilbourne Hall – 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Donation is $5 a person, or $20 for the family.

Just keep the tradition!

Then on, Ash Wednesday, February 17, join us at St. Alban’s, St. Patrick’s, and St. Thomas’ for the start of Lent, and our Ash Wednesday Liturgy and Holy Eucharist. Ashes will be imposed at all in-person worship.
