Ash Wednesday & Shrove Tuesday
Shrove Tuesday is the English answer to Mardi Gras (which is French for Fat Tuesday!). Both are opportunities for one last day of partying before Lent begins.
Before Ash Wednesday, we celebrate with St. Andrew's annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 28th from 5-7pm. The food is provided by Chris Cakes, and your ticket gets you plenty to eat! Tickets are $4 for kids, and $6 for ages 10 and up. You can buy your tickets at the church office (M-Th 9-1), or at church on Sunday, or at the door. Everyone is welcome!
Before the Pancake Supper, help us burn the palms from last year's Palm Sunday liturgy. We burn the palms to make the ashes for this year's Ash Wednesday services.
The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. On this day, Christians gather to begin the journey towards the Cross and the Resurrection with the Ash Wednesday service. Come to church and receive your ashes! This year Ash Wednesday is on March 1.
