Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
February 28, 5:00-7:00 p.m., in Ellis Hall
It’s time to fatten up before the penitential season of Lent begins! Join the Saints on this evening of feasting and confessing before the fasting! (On “Fat Tuesday”, a common practice on the last night of Mardi Gras, we eat up those richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. The word ‘Shrove’ is derived from ‘shrive’ meaning to confess.) There will be pancakes, bacon and more, oh my! It will be a filling supper prepared by the Men of Covenant Community.
Supper is $10 for adults and $5 for kids ages 3-12. All proceeds will go to Covenant Community. Volunteers are needed and appreciated. Folks are needed to help serve, meet and greet, keep the buffet filled with pancakes.
