In preparation for the season of Lent, staff and students of St. Thomas the Apostle CES gathered together in the gymnasium to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.
Thanks to to the following parents and community partners who worked tirelessly this morning to prepare and serve pancakes to the entire student body:
Mrs. Hammond, Mr. Bardati, Mrs. Benak, Mrs. Elms, Mrs. Sider, Mrs. Greco, Mr. Triburski, Father Whitfield and Mrs. Stys
Thanks to the wonderful Grade Eights and Mrs. Shannon for transforming the gymnasium into a place of faith and fellowship and feeding. The Grade Eights also cut pancakes for the little ones, poured syrup and kept water cups full.
Thanks to the owners of Sunset Grill, the restaurant in the Walmart plaza for donating free of charge the delicious buttermilk pancake batter. Please provide patronage to this wonderfully generous establishment in thanks.
It was a wonderful experience that brought together everyone in joy as we ready ourselves for Ash Wednesday tomorrow and Lenten promises ahead.
