Over 60 people enjoyed the hospitality at St Mark’s church hall at Aberdeen. A short service was conducted by Rev Keith Colbert, Fr Anthony Nguyen and Deacon Gerard McCarthy to burn the palms for Ash Wednesday. Those who attended shared pancakes and various delicious dishes were enjoyed by all.
This combined celebration has been a part of the church calendar since 2010 and all proceeds of the night go to the missions to help with their needs. The cost of the sumptuous meal was only $5.00 and this year over $300 was raised.
