St. James’ Episcopal Church to host pancake supper fundraiser

On this day before Lent begins, on Ash Wednesday, it was the custom to use up all milk, eggs and fat in a household, since these were not allowed in the strict fasting of Lent. The ingredients were made into pancakes, a meal which came to symbolize preparation for the discipline of Lent.

St. James’ will be observing Shrove Tuesday with a pancake supper open to the community. On Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 5-7 p.m. all are invited to enjoy all you can eat pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, juice, coffee and tea at the St. James’ Parish Hall, located at 502 West Montana Street. Cost is minimal for the event.

All profits received from the supper will be donated to Tails as Old as Time. TOT is a Montana Senior Dog Rescue. TOT is located here in Lewistown and helps homeless senior dogs of Montana find and keep retirement homes.
