Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner is a tradition that has been around for many years. It is based on the ancient shriving tradition where Christians would confess their sins and receive absolution prior to the start of Lent. Lent is a time of abstinence, so in preparation for this period of time, people used up all their "fat" and goodies in order to prepare for the Lenten season. This is where the term "Fat Tuesday" comes from and eating pancakes is a meal that will incorporate all those fatty foods of eggs, butter, milk and, of course, syrup.
Traditionally Shrove Tuesday has become a time to celebrate before the solemnness that envelopes the time of Lent. We invite you to join us as we come together to have fun, eat hardy, and celebrate the end of ordinary time and beginning of Lent.
