Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper and Closing of the Doors

Please join us on Shrove Tuesday, March 1, in the cathedral nave, to end the season after Epiphany in the traditional way—by gathering in community, eating pancakes, and having fun! There will be live music, crafts, and games. Chef Marc Aubertin and the youth will be preparing our meal, and the members of the Seattle Service Corps will be decorating and assisting in the celebration.

The evening will conclude with a brief liturgy to bury the Alleluias and close the great doors until Easter. (This is a tradition to unique to Saint Mark's—see a glimpse of what the Closing of the Doors has looked like in previous years below!)

Please register in advance here. Children 5 and under are very much welcome! Everyone older than 5 must be vaccinated or provide a recent negative PCR test. When you register, you will be encouraged to provide your proof of vaccination in advance, simply by emailing an image to Canon Barrie at

(Registration will also be available at the door, but advance registration will aid in planning, and providing proof of vaccination in advance will speed up check-in.)

    I tried to send the photos of our vaccination cards to Wendy Claire Barrie, but my computer said the address given was not a valid email address. I can’t find a list of email addresses on the website. Please send me her correct address.

      Jane I don’t know what to tell you. wbarrie @ saintmarks . org is the correct address. The email addresses of staff are found on the “Staff” page of this website.
