Pancake Supper 2016

This year, All Souls will celebrate Shrove Tuesday (February 9) at 6:30 p.m. in the Undercroft with a festive pancake supper.  All are welcome.  Please sign up on the welcome table if you are coming so we know how many to plan for.  

Shrove Tuesday is always the day in February or March preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In early times, the Lenten fast was severe. Christians abstained from all meat and items that came from animals, including butter, eggs, cheese, and fat. That is why Shrove Tuesday became known as Mardi Gras, the French term for "Fat Tuesday," the last chance to eat those foods before Lent. In the countries that speak a Romance language, the time is also known as Carnivale or, literally, "farewell to meat." In England, it became the custom to confess one's sins on this day before Lent began in order to enter the Lenten penitential season in the right spirit.  Shrove is the past tense of the verb shrive, which means to absolve from sin. The English also celebrated it as Pancake Day, because Christians used up their eggs, butter, and milk to make pancakes and other pastries.
