Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper & Prayer Stations
Before the austerity of Lent, we celebrate with a pre-Lenten feast of pancakes and sausage on Shrove (from the Old English—to shrive: to confess) Tuesday, February 13th from 5pm to 7pm in the Undercroft. The dinner costs $7 and all of the proceeds will support the Youth Pilgrimage to Italy. This year, the festivities will also include some interactive and educational prayer stations to mark the Feast of The Rev. Absalom Jones, who was the first African American to be ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church of the United States. While you are waiting to be served or after you have eaten, you are invited to engage with a series of interactive stations that will lead you to listen, learn, lament and love. These Stations are a project of the Dismantling Racism Committee.
