Shrove Tuesday & Talent Show

  • The Church of Our Saviour 535 West Roses Road San Gabriel, CA, 91775 United States (map)

Join us for this wonderful Annual Tradition of Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner and Talent Show!

Shrove Tuesday originated during the Middle Ages. As in contemporary times, food items like meats, fats, eggs, milk, and fish were regarded as restricted during Lent. To keep such food from being wasted, many families would have big feasts on Shrove Tuesday in order to consume those items that would inevitably become spoiled during the next forty days. The English tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday came about as a way to use as much milk, fats, and eggs as possible before Ash Wednesday began.

At COS you can also showcase YOUR talent!  Sing a song, say a poem, do a skit, play an instrument!  All are welcome, just contact Gabe and let us know what you need!
