PRE-LENT PANCAKE BREAKFAST-SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2018, 9:00 AM. 

January 8th, 2018 by Brenda Robichaud

 Pancake Meals, just prior to the beginning of Lent, have been a Christian tradition for many years.  It began as part of an effort to avoid wasting those items that would not be consumed during Lent because of the spiritual discipline of fasting.  This might have included items like meats, fats, eggs, milk, leaven, etc.  Pancake dinners became a tradition on Shrove Tuesday, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, as a means of using up consumables like milk, fat, and eggs.  We will continue this tradition as our Christian Education Program sponsors a Pancake Breakfast on the Sunday prior to the beginning of Lent.  Come join us.  A free will offering will be taken to cover costs.
