Episcopal Church flips pancakes for traditional Shrove Tuesday

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension’s annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper attracted 225 patrons who arrived from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to partake of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, coffee and juice.The event has been a tradition at the church for about 50 years. No one seems to know exactly when it started, but Bob Finck, busily flipping gluten-free pancakes, said he had been helping with the event since about 1966.Shrove Tuesday is an English tradition that called for clearing the house of grease, fats and sugars the evening before Ash Wednesday so no one would be tempted to eat rich meals during Lent. The “shrove” part comes from the early Christian practice of being “shriven” or having one’s confession heard before Lent.
