Epiphany, like Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost, is both a day and a season. On January 6 we celebrate the coming of the Magi to see the infant Jesus. In the weeks that follow we remember the ministry of Jesus—his baptism, calling of the disciples, miracles and teachings, and his transfiguration on the mountain. Green is the color of Epiphany, which continues until Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
Pancakes on the last day of the Epiphany season is a long-standing church tradition —originally intended as a way to use up fat before the Lenten fast commences. We usually add a Mardi Gras twist since “Mardi Gras” is just another term for Shrove Tuesday.
