Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner 

With a Pancake Flipping Race for Kids (ages 4-100)

Sangria for Grown Ups

and Live Music!

February 25th, 6:30 pm – 8:30pm

Before you start your 40 days of serious self-examination, come to Grace for pancake flipping, racing, and eating! 

Shrove Tuesday is the day before the season of Lent: the 40 days preceding Easter that many Christians set aside for self-examination, fasting, prayer and acts of charity. Any rich foods in the house are traditionally finished on Shrove Tuesday, which is a reason to throw a party. Come with your kids or someone else’s and bring a friend!

Ash Wednesday Services

February 26th

7:30 am at the Grove Street PATH station

 Noon, 4:00 pm (with kids' homily) & 7:00 pm

You are dust and to dust you shall return….The mystery of “being” is precious and fleeting.  Use Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday, to reflect on what your own life means and how you wish to honor God with it.
