• Shrove Tuesday | Church

    Bring the whole family to this fun evening of pancakes, bacon, fruit cocktail, dessert and beverages. No need to sign up in advance, just show up with an appetite to the Fellowship Hall!

    Also called Fat Tuesday, we clear out all of the fat, rich foods to start Lent, traditionally a time of fasting, on Ash Wednesday.

    Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the ritual of shriving that Christians used to undergo in the past. In shriving, a person confesses their sins and receives absolution for them. When a person receives absolution for their sins, they are forgiven for them and released from the guilt and pain that they have caused them.

    The feasting aspect of Shrove Tuesday originated due to the need to get rid of the foods/ingredients that are restricted during the Lenten fasting, such as sugar, leavened flour, eggs, etc. The need to use up these ingredients has resulted in Shrove Tuesday also becoming known as Pancake Tuesday, or, more simply, Pancake Day.

After our return from dinner, we will gather for fellowship and cookies at the Brookstown. On March 14, we will have breakfast at the Brookstown (included), check out, and then complete our tour of Old Salem and meet for lunch at the Flowerbox Tea Room and Cafe. We will depart by 2pm to avoid Charlotte traffic and be home by 730pm.
