Shrove Tuesday & Lent at Grace

Fourth Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
Tuesday, February 28 from 5:30 to no later than 7:30ish. We’ll serve pancakes and sausages from 5:30 until around 6:15, followed by the shrove hunt, games for children, and a trivia contest for adults. And then … then we’ll split into two teams, take our places at opposite ends of the narthex, and the pancake- flipping relay will begin. Bragging rights will be won by somebody; laughter and fun will be shared by all!
