Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner
March 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Springing from the rich tradition of our Church, Shrove Tuesday is that day on which Catholics would consume – as much as the family could – all remaining butter, milk, eggs, flour, and other foods needed to prepare desserts and feasts. Not wanting to waste the goods, many homes took up the custom of making pancakes or other meals using decadent ingredients on that day. More importantly, the name of the day indicates its fundamental purpose. “To shrive” is to do penance and receive absolution, to prepare oneself for the Season of Lent by stripping away all sins and distractions. Confessions are available at 6 p.m. as well as after the 6:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Masses. We invite you to join our feast on the day before we fast.
Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., with dinner served at 6:30 in the Community Center If you are interested in donating your time, talent, or treasure (or flour), please reach out to our point of contact, Joseph@SugarLandCatholic.com.
