On Tuesday, Feb. 21, St. Matthews will host its annual Shrove Tuesday pancake supper, beginning at 6 p.m.
The Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday is known as Pancake Day, or even Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), because it is a day in which those who observe the season of Lent consume pancakes as sugar, fat, flour and eggs as these items are traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting of the season.
An Ash Wednesday service will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 12:10 p.m. and mid-week services will continue through the season. Additionally, Lenten soup and book study will also take place Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m.
We invite you to join us, even if you are not a regular member of our church. You are always welcome at St. Matthews!
