Pancake Day(?)

Most people may see pancakes as a delicious flat cake that we devour with some syrup, but did you know that it has some religious significance to it? Shrove Tuesday, or known as Pancake Day, uses pancakes to celebrate the last day of Carnival, Mardi Gras and preceding Lent. Pancakes are usually associated with Shrove Tuesday because it was a way for people to give up certain foods like eggs, milk, flour and sugar for Lent.

There’s always something you can do

At age 91, Covington resident Lovic Cyril Warren Jr. says in retrospect that his greatest accomplishment was preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
