Come enjoy a Shrove Tuesday pancake & sausage supper on Tuesday, February 17th, from 4:00 – 7:30 pm at Canadian Martyrs Church. Pancakes, sausage, dessert, juice, tea & coffee will be prepared to satisfy the hungriest appetite. The cost for the meal is $7.00 for adults and $4.00 for children. The origin of Shrove Tuesday comes from the idea of – the night before Lent begins – consuming everything in the household from which one planned to abstain during Lent. We serve pancakes to connect us to the customs of a time when flour, eggs, milk, butter and other food items were all on the Lenten abstinence list. These days we celebrate the evening before Ash Wednesday more as a foretaste of the feast to come at Easter. So come and savor with us the beginnings of anticipation to be heightened during our Lenten time of preparation. Tickets will be on sale after Mass next weekend, February 7th & 8th as well as February 14th & 15th. Tickets can also be purchased at the parish office. The proceeds will go towards the Daily Bread Outreach Ministry and Kairos Blessings Ministry to help those in need.
