Shrove Tuesday Pancake Feed to be held on Tuesday Feb 9th at 5:30 .
Shrove Tuesday is the last day before the period which Christians call Lent.
Why do Christians call the day “Shrove Tuesday? The name shrove comes from the old word “shrive” which means to confess. On Shrove Tuesday , in the middle ages, people used to confess their sins so that they were forgiven before the season of Lent began.
Why are pancakes eaten on Shrove Tuesday?
Lent is a time of abstinence, of giving things up.So shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which used to be forbidden during Lent in the middle ages.

This week every household in our parish received a letter from Fr. Jose Luis Hernandez, asking for our participation in the upcoming Annual Catholic Appeal 2016. This coming week Bishop Daly will mail his formal request for participation to every household in the Diocese. By means of this year’s Appeal he calls us all to a time of commitment.
As part of our diocesan Catholic family, St. Vincent de Paul Parish exercises its shared responsibility for assuring the continuation of the mission entrusted to us by Christ. The participation of every household is critically important. The goal for our parish is $18,598.00. A couple of years ago a separate (tax exempt) legal entity, Diocesan Ministries Funds, was set up in order to honor the ACA donor’s intention, that is, only to meet the ministerial and administrative needs of the Diocese. A special governing board (as well as Washington State law) will assure that the intention of donors is followed. Please make checks payable to: “Annual Catholic Appeal 2016.”
Please prayerfully read the information you receive from the Bishop and Fr. Jose Luis Hernandez and respond generously – and bring your pledge envelope to Mass next weekend.
