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).
