Pancake Supper
Tuesday, February 25, 2020
5:30 - 7:00 PM
Pancakes, sausages, beverages, dessert
Cost: $8


Trivia alert: Pancake (or Shrove) Tuesday marks the last day before the beginning of Lent (the 40 day season leading up to Good Friday and Easter). Centuries ago, ingredients such as sugar and eggs were restricted during Lent (tradionally, a time of fasting and reflection), so Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to make merry and use up these ingredients before Easter. (That's where the festival of Mardi Gras - from the French, "fat Tuesday" - began.)
Ash Wednesday services

Wednesday, February 26, 2020
@1:30 and 7:30pm

Why not begin your Lenten journey with this time of reflection in the company of others...     all are welcome.

About the season: Epiphany
When: Epiphany itself occurs on Jan 6 (the 12th day after Christmas - hence the name of the Christmas song!). The season lasts either for a week or until Ash Wednesday (Feb. 26 in 2020), the beginning of Lent.
Meaning: "to reveal" - a shining forth of the light of Christ. Often a period for emphasizing the mission of the church.
Colours: White
Event: Traditionally, Epiphany celebrates the arrival of the magi ("wise men"), the first to "reveal" Jesus to the wider world
