Fat Tuesday (or Mardi Gras) is another name for Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, the rich fats in the larder – butter and oil – are enjoyed before a season of more simple foods. You can join us for pancakes (and butter and syrup!) at the Chapel of the Cross on March 1 by registering here. You can also rewatch our 2021 movie, If You Give a Priest a Pancake and learn more about the Lenten Season that begins on Ash Wednesday (March 2). The Chapel of the Cross website has a complete list of programs and services that will be offered as we prepare for Easter.
