Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper @ St. James Lutheran Church
Mar 5 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

It’s Time To Eat Pancakes …

We gather on Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30pm for our Shrove Tuesday celebration. Historically celebrated the day before the season of Lent, shrove comes from the Latin word shrive which means to absolve. Before a season of Lenten fasting, households would use up oils and other foods. Pancakes are on the menu! Then join us the following day for Ash Wednesday Worship at Noon and 7:00pm for a solemn service with the imposition of ash upon our foreheads signifying repentance. The season concludes with the joyous celebration of Easter morning.
