Shrove Tuesday Celebration was a Success!
This special celebration marks the end of the Epiphany season and helps us ready our hearts and minds for the quieter more reflective season of Lent.
Shrove Tuesday gets its name from ‘shrove’, the past tense of ‘shrive’ – which means to obtain absolution for our sins by confessing and doing penance. It’s also known as Pancake Day because it was the last opportunity to use up luxury foods such as milk, sugar, eggs and butter before embarking on the Lenten fast. Pancakes were the ideal way of using up these ingredients (and yes, sadly, milk, sugar, eggs and butter are still regarded as luxury foods in the some parts of the western world).
McDonald’s Chapel Presbyterian Church, located at 1374 Foxfire Road, Aberdeen, held a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper Sunday, March 1st, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., in the church fellowship hall.
The menu included pancakes, sausage, harvest apples, juice, coffee and milk.
The proceeds benefited Linden Lodge.
