Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Venue

Parish Hall

Details

Date:
February 13
Time:
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Shrove Tuesday is the day preceding Ash Wednesday, and is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes before the fasting period of Lent. In Louisiana, Shrove Tuesday is called Fat Tuesday, and is the final day of Mardi Gras celebrations. The expression “Shrove Tuesday” comes from the word “shrive,” or “absolve.”  

For many decades, St. John’s has celebrated Shrove Tuesday with the offering of a Pancake Supper organized by the former Senior Wardens who live locally. Did you know that there are about a dozen Former Senior Wardens still active at St. John’s? We can cook and we love gathering annually to prepare the Pancake Supper for the St. John’s community.

Come and enjoy pancakes, bacon, sausage, apple sauce, fruit, and beverages for $7 per person/$14 for two persons/$20 per family of 3 or more. Kids under 6 years old eat for FREE. Have your own little Mardi Gras celebration! Bring friends! A portion of the proceeds go to support Youth Group activities so you can come and support them too.
