Fat Tuesday

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.

Merry Christmas!

This time last year, parishioners came together to create a virtual pageant. In 2021, we gathered in the UNC Forest Theatre to spread Joy to the World. We have found ways to be together when we’re apart, when we’re masked, when we’re worried, when we’re weary, when we’re hopeful and when we’re merry. Our prayers and songs meet at the cradle and the cross, again and again.
