Join us at St. Andrew's United Church in Mission on Tuesday, March 5, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, for a Pancake Supper to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. Admission is by donation and all proceeds will be given to the Mission Central School Breakfast Club program.  Come and share a delicious pancake & sausage supper with us as well as conversation and fellowship.  All are welcome!  (St. Andrew's United Church is located at 33077 Second Avenue - corner of James & 2nd - in Mission. The entrance to the supper is off 2nd Avenue.)

Shrove Tuesday is the day immediately preceeding Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent).  It was originally a solemn day but over the centuries, in anticipation of the Lenten fast that would begin the next day, Shrove Tuesday took on a festive nature. That is why Shrove Tuesday is also known as "Fat Tuesday" or "Mardi Gras" (which is simply French for Fat Tuesday).
