SHROVE TUESDAY DINNER AND PALM BURNING
Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30 pm
Bring your family to Resurrection on Tuesday, February 28th and enjoy a delicious pancake supper before the season of Lent begins. We'll be serving up pancakes, sausage, bacon and drinks from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
Shrove Tuesday originated during the Middle Ages. To keep food from being wasted, families would have big feasts on Shrove Tuesday in order to consume those items that would inevitably become spoiled during the next forty days. The English tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday came about as a way to use as much milk, fats, and eggs as possible before Ash Wednesday began.
Did you save your palm fronds from Palm Sunday last year?
Bring them to the Shrove Tuesday pancake supper and join Fr. David for a brief service at 7:30 pm to bless and burn the palms. The palms are a reminder of Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The ashes symbolize death and remind us of our mortality. The ashes created at the burning of the palms will be used in our Ash Wednesday services.
