Shrove Tuesday Pancake Suppers are a “Feast before the Fast” of Lent. Traditionally, Christian families would use up all the sugar and butter in the house by making pancakes for dinner on the night before Ash Wednesday when Lenten fasting begins.
Join us for Pancake Supper hosted by St. John’s Youth Group on Feb. 21 from 5PM – 7PM in the Parish Hall. We will have a dinner of pancakes, sausage, bacon, fruit and beverages! Any donations the night of the supper are appreciated and will be used to benefit our youth program.
We still need a few pancake flippers and a few griddles to use (please deliver by 2/15). Go to the Signup Genius if you’d like to contribute! Donations will benefit our youth program. Come and enjoy pancakes, bacon, and sausage along with fantastic fellowship!
During our Shrove Tuesday Celebration…
at 6PM we will have a chance to “bury the Alleluias” followed by a short family-friendly Imposition of Ashes. Alleluia coloring sheets will be available during the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper when we will say “goodbye” by burying them in the Church Yard to be resurrected on Easter Morning when we can say Alleluia again!
The Imposition of Ashes is an excellent way for Children to be introduced to Lent and Ash Wednesday and an opportunity for those who cannot be at one of our Ash Wednesday offerings to receive Ashes and begin their Lenten journey.
(Tuesday) 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
