Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper with Closing of the Doors
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 6–7:15 P.M., in the cathedral nave. Suggested donation: $6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family.
Please join us 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 members of the Seattle Service Corps 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 to unique to Saint Mark’s—see a glimpse of what the Closing of the Doors looked like last year here.) Finally, on the patio, the palms are burned on the patio to create the ashes for the Ash Wednesday service the next day.
