Celebrating Shrove Tuesday

Dear Friends,

Shrove Tuesday is the last day before the Season of Lent. Traditionally, Christians empty their pantries of fat and sugar in preparation for the simpler, less indulgent weeks of Lent. While customs may change, today provides us with an opportunity for a last “hurrah” before Lent begins.

At St. Andrew’s, we will be celebrating Shove Tuesday with Pancake Day, a fundraiser for UnitingCare. If you are in Glenelg today, pop into church and enjoy a freshly made pancake with a topping of your choice. 

Here’s a blessing for Shrove Tuesday that we’ll be handing out with the pancakes:

Peace to you,

Rev. Christine Gilbert
