Join Us for Shrove Sunday Evensong & Pancake Dinner

Experience the joy of Shrove Sunday at Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church as we come together for a special Evensong service followed by a delightful Pancake Dinner. This event is a wonderful opportunity for both our congregation and the wider community to share in a sacred and joyous evening of worship and fellowship.

What is Shrove Sunday?

Shrove Sunday, also known as "Forgiveness Sunday" or "Cheesefare Sunday," marks the beginning of the Shrovetide period, observed by Christians worldwide. It serves as a time of preparation before the solemnity of Lent and allows individuals to reflect on their lives, seek forgiveness, and embrace change. It is a day to indulge in rich foods before entering the fasting season of Lent, hence the tradition of Pancake Dinners.

Experience the Beauty of Evensong

Our Shrove Sunday Evensong service is a truly enchanting experience. Evensong is a sacred Anglican tradition that combines elements of evening prayer, scripture readings, hymns, and choral music. As the sun sets, allowing the soft evening light to filter through the stained-glass windows of our sanctuary, the soothing melodies and heartfelt prayers create a serene and reflective atmosphere. Join us in uplifting our spirits and connecting with the Divine through this beautiful worship service.

Delight in a Scrumptious Pancake Dinner

Following the Evensong service, we invite you to stay for a Pancake Dinner filled with delectable treats. Indulge in a variety of pancakes, both traditional and unique, served with an array of delicious toppings and accompaniments. It's a time for our community to come together, share a meal, and enjoy warm conversations while savoring the delightful flavors. Whether you prefer sweet or savory, our Pancake Dinner has something for everyone.
