Shrove Tuesday Today
Tuesday, February 09 – Shrove Tuesday – 5 to 7 pm – best pancakes around
Adults $5.00 – children 10 & under $2.00. Come early as it is usually very busy. Great fresh fruit salad, pancakes, toppings, and ham. This is the only yearly fundraiser for the Altar Guild of St. Augustine’s who prepare for Sunday worship and care for the Sanctuary.
Our service this Ash Wednesday is February 10, 2016 at 7pm. Grace Unted will be joining us.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent in the church. Lent is a season of preparation for Easter – that our ears would be open, our hearts ready, and our lives changed by living the news of Jesus’ resurrection. In the 40 days of Lent we remember and participate with Jesus as he spent his 40 days in the desert wrestling and suffering through the voices that would call him into evil. Likewise in the church in Lent, we face the reality of our world and the voices that would call us to live a disoriented and selfish life. Jesus walks with us, and so may we walk with him and serve with him those he loves.
Rev. Crane will also be participating in “Ashes to Go” a diocesan initiative of serving those who cannot make it to an Ash Wednesday service. He will be at Central LRT station from 6am-9pm if you would like to come by :)
