St. Paul's Episcopal Church at Clinton and Carroll Street is celebrating Mardi Gras  this Tueday with a wonderful Pancake Dinner.

Here are all the details:
On Tuesday February 12, come join us for a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper in our Parish Hall. Why Tuesday, Why Pancakes?  Because Pancakes come with butter and other fats like bacon , sausage and are served with sweets like syrup. Foods that many fast from during the season of Lent.

The English call this day "Shrove Tuesday". "Shrove" comes from an early English word related to "shriven"--"gotten rid of", and was used in reference to sin. In olden times Christians "ate through" their larders on the last days leading up to Lent's fast so as not to waste anything. The next day “Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, a season lasting 40 days and concluding on Easter, March 30, 2013. 

So come down and bring your family and join us as we eat our way through St. Paul’s larders and have one last fling before the holy and solemn season of Lent begins.  We will be serving pancakes, all the fixings, bacon and sausage from 6:30 pm. to 8:00 pm,, tickets are $5 and will be available at the door at the door. St Paul’s is located at 199 Carroll Street, off the corner of Clinton Street.
