Pancakes at the Rectory — 6.30 PM

Fr Jeff and Michelle invite ALL parish­ion­ers to cel­eb­rate Shrove Tues­day with them at the Rect­ory start­ing at 6.30. p.m.  This gath­er­ing is held on the eve of Ash Wed­nes­day, the begin­ning of Lent.  The tra­di­tion holds that on this day the eggs, but­ter and fat was used to ensure it was all gone for Len­ten sea­son.  The tra­di­tion of cel­eb­rat­ing Shrove Tues­day and eat­ing pan­cakes began because people wanted to use up the tempt­ing food that they were giv­ing up for Lent.   

Parish­ion­ers are invited to bring a top­ping, a savoury or sweet one and we’ll share the feast togeth­er.   If you are not a cook don’t worry.  There will be plenty to go around. Also, we will make the ashes from last year’s palm crosses (hope­fully with a little less drama than last year!)

Please have a look at home for last year’s palm crosses.  It is these we burn to make the ashes for Ash Wed­nes­day (26/02).
