Just 24 hours before an Ash Wednesday celebration, the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper flipped stacks upon stacks of pancakes onto the plates of those individuals that came out to St. Lukes Episcopal Church.
Beginning at 5 p.m., and going until 7:30 p.m. the Tuesday, March 5 event was a success as it is annually. In the past, large numbers of individuals have attended the annual fundraiser and this year was another solid turn out with a handful of guests coming through the doors right at opening.
Tables were donned with Mardi Gras colors and decorations in the eating section of the church with a light music playing in the background.
Without a set price for the all you can eat pancakes, individuals contributed to the cause through a donation basket with some even donating without eating a single pancake.
Taking place since the 1940’s, the Lakeview St. Luke’s Episcopal congregation has seen a great turnout and a special event to share food, laughs and company. The event is a good way to bring in some extra funds for the church’s regular services and community contributions.
Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday, is recognized by several Christian dominations as a way to kick-off Lent, a time period when they either fast or give up something of value for six weeks.
St. Lukes is located at 614 S. F St., in Lakeview and has Sunday morning prayer beginning at 10 a.m.
