Saying 'carne vale' on Mardi Gras

Staff at the Pastoral Centre and Sacred Heart parish were treated to a ‘Fat Tuesday’ pancake lunch today, presented by the social committee, who flipped flapjacks, and cooked bacon, sausage and eggs.

Mardi Gras, also known as ‘Fat Tuesday’, or ‘Carnival’, is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday. It’s a kind of ‘last hurrah’ before the more somber days of Lent. The word ‘carnival’ is derived from the Latin words carne vale, or ‘farewell to the flesh (meat)’.

A blessed time of food and fellowship was enjoyed by all.
