Mardi Gras Pancake Supper

In French, “Mardi Gras” literally means “Fat Tuesday,” so named because it falls on the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of lent, a 40-day season of prayer and fasting, which ends on Easter Sunday. In the United Kingdom and many other countries, the day is often known as Pancake Day. Making and eating such foods was considered a last feast with ingredients such as sugar, fat and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the ritual fasting associated with Lent.

At Nativity, we celebrate Mardi Gras with a pancake dinner prepared and served by our youth groups. Children’s crafts are provided and you’ll probably go home with some beads, too!

We are in need of a team of great pancake flippers, an energetic team of youth and adults to serve tables and a few people to assist children with Mardi Gras crafts. And of course we could use some people to sell tickets, set up and clean up. Contact Rachel Lord at and sign up in the Gathering Space or at Sign-up Genius.
