Shrove Tuesday

Bob Duce, left, and Alex Robertson cook pancakes at St. Leonard’s on the Hill Anglican Church on Shrove Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday precedes Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent in the run-up to Easter. Pancakes grew popular over time since they used up rich foods such as eggs, milk and sugar before Lent’s 40-day fasting began. Proceeds from the meal will be used for church and youth group programs.
