Shrove Tuesday (or 'Mardi Gras' or 'Fat Tuesday') involves 'clearing the cupboards' with a festive atmosphere on the eve of Lent, when Christians pay closer attention to prayer and fasting, study and almsgiving on the way toward Holy Week and Easter.
Please join us between 5:30-7:00 for pancakes and sausage on Tuesday Feb 28! (A freewill donation basket will be on hand, but pay-what-you-can)
You are also invited to receive the Imposition of Ashes in prayer services at noon and 7:00 on Ash Wednesday, March 1st.
Feet in need of some TLC?
In partnership with Edmonton Foot Care, St Matthias is hosting a Foot Care Clinic on Monday Feb 6 at the church. Cost is a mere $5 on site at the church, or $10 if you need a home visit in the west Edmonton area. To book, please call St Matthias at 780-487-0324
On the first Wednesday of the month all are invited to a Supper & Service -- supper is available to be enjoyed on the house from 5:30-6:30, whenever you arrive. At 6:30 (till 7:15 or 7:30) we will gather in the church for a Service of the Word, including music led by the St Matthias Music Collective and an interactive talk by our parish priest david+ (currently we are working through the Lord's Prayer phrase by phrase).
