Shrove Tuesday: Pancake Supper

Tue, 02/28: 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Parish Hall, St. Mark's in the Bowery

Pancakes represent the rich foods and meats that were forbidden during Lent in the Middle Ages in Europe—a feast to remove sources of temptation. To be “shriven” was to confess and receive absolution.

After a feast of different types of pancakes (and toppings!), we will burn last year’s palms to create this year’s ashes with a simple liturgy.

Bring any flammable symbols of temptations or things you’d like to give up in this season to be burned with the palms.
