Pancakes & Piñatas
February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join the people of St. Francis of Assisi, Wilsonville at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, February 25 in the Parish Hall.
This year we will enjoy the addition of dancers from The Balet Folklorico de Wilsonville, as well as piñatas for the kids to break open.
“Shrove Tuesday,” or “Carnival,” is the last day before Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter when we remember the time Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness. Historically, during the time of Lent, people gave up luxury items, including foods such as butter and eggs. This led to the tradition of making pancakes on the day before Lent to use up the butter and eggs. Shrove Tuesday and pancakes became perfect partners!”
