Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper & Closing of the Doors

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 6–7:15 P.M., in the cathedral nave. Suggested donation: $5/person, $20/family.

Please join in on Shrove Tuesday (a.k.a. Mardi Gras), February 21, 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 youth of the cathedral will be decorating and assisting in the celebration. The celebration in the nave will conclude with a brief liturgy to bury the Alleluias and close the great doors until Easter. (This is a treasured tradition unique to Saint Mark’s—see a glimpse of what the Closing of the Doors looked in years past here.) Finally, on the patio, palms are burned to create the ashes for the Ash Wednesday services the next day.
