ANNUAL PANCAKE SUPPER, Tuesday, February 25 – 6:00 PM
Please join us to celebrate a custom that goes back to the earliest times of the Church. It seems that in an attempt to avoid eating to excess during the penitential season of Lent, the Parish gathered to eat up all the rich foods in the kitchen ahead of time. It is also known as Mardi Gras (which means “Fat Tuesday” – but not to worry, any weight gained will be lost with your fasting on the next day, Ash Wednesday) and Shrove Tuesday which for many people is seen as the last chance to party. It is also a time of penance and spiritual renewal in which early Christians abstained from meat and animal products. The Choc Brothers will be preparing a variety of most delicious pancakes – blueberry, chocolate chip, gluten free and others all topped with a variety of syrups.
The 1828 Legacy Society is comprised of those persons who have made a contribution of cash or stocks to the Endowment Fund, included St. Paul’s in their wills, and/or made St. Paul’s the beneficiary of an insurance policy. Anyone who wishes to be part of the 1828 Legacy Society should contact either Mark Monroe or Jim Freed to obtain a donor form.

Lenten Soup Suppers
The Lenten Soup Suppers are a time to gather and mark the 40 days of Lent with prayer and study. This year we will meet on Thursdays at 6:00 PM to share a bowl of soup with bread followed by a discussion of Embracing Spiritual Awakening by Diana Butler Bass. We will be talking about how the Church is changing both culturally and spiritually – that indeed we are in the midst of another of history’s “great awakenings.” There is a workbook that helps us through our discussions. Just let the office know if you plan to attend so that we have enough material.
