On Tuesday the parishioners of Calvary Episcopal Church in Cleveland will host their Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper from 5-7 p.m. at the church's Parish Hall located at 409 S. Court St.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased from any parishioner of the church or at the church on the night of the event. Dine in or take out available. All proceeds go to the Calvary Men's Outreach Account.

Shrove Tuesday, also known as Fat Tuesday, occurs the first Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and officially ends the season of Epiphany and is the observance of the starting of lent.

Lent is a time, of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It spans 40 days representing the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptations of Satan.

Pancakes are associated with Shrove Tuesday because they contain sugar, fat, flour and eggs, all of which are ingredients among other foods that are traditionally not consumed during Lent.

Calvary Episcopal has held the event for over 40 years.
