Shrove Tuesday 2018

Also known as Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, on this night we will celebrate the Feast Before the Fast.

Community Pancake Super

Join us as we enjoy a feast of rich foods on this night before the traditional Lenten Fast!
In the tradition of our Medieval English ancestors, we will endeavor to consume specifically the butter and eggs that would have spoiled during the days of Lent. Traditionally served up on this night as pancakes, these ingredients would have been among those too rich to be consumed in the weeks that followed. Whether you plan to engage in an actual fast this Lent, all are invited to join us while we gather together for a family supper and time well-spent among friends.
