WHITELAW PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
8665 NORTH MAIN ST, CANASTOTA, NY 13032
We hope you will join us as we journey through Lent by attending some, if not all, of the following events:
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper Tuesday, February 28, 5:30-7:00 PM
Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent starts on Ash Wednesday. The name Shrove comes from
the old middle English word 'Shriven' meaning to go to confession to say sorry for the wrong
things you've done. Lent always starts on a Wednesday, so people went to confession on the day
before. We use the Pancake Supper as a way for our Sunday School children to raise money to
share in our community.
Ash Wednesday Service Wednesday, March 01, 7:00 PM
We begin our Lenten journey this day; a time of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual
discipline, at which time we will receive the imposition of ashes and share in the Lord’s Supper.
Friendship Club Saturday, March 18, 6:30 PM
Join us for a potluck supper followed by a slideshow & informative program on the Snowy Owl
presented by Award-winning photographer Susan Kiesel.

Palm Sunday Service Sunday, April 16, 9:30 AM
This is the day we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and generally do so by
the carrying and waving of palm fronds.
Maundy Thursday Service Thursday, April 13, 7:00 PM
On this night we will commemorate the supper Jesus shared with his disciples before His
crucifixion doing so through the sharing of confession and pardon, proclamation of the Word, the
Lord’s Supper, and stripping of the church.
Easter/Resurrection of the Lord Sunday, April 16
This service represents the festival or holiday that took place celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion at Calvary. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The day will begin with:
