FROM FOR THE RECORD (Tuesday, February 24, 1998):

Correction

Service location: Salem Lutheran Church will hold an Ash Wednesday service this week at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 1823 E. Dean, at 7 p.m. The location was not listed in a North Voice article Thursday.

Lent begins next week and many North Side churches will be observing Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, with a special worship service. A few will also host meals in observance of Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras.

Here’s a listing of some of the events:

St. Peter Lutheran Church, 4620 N. Regal, will host its annual Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. There is no set price for the meal, but donations will be accepted to help cover expenses.

Those who still have palm fronds from last year’s Easter Sunday worship service are asked to bring them to the church Tuesday evening so they can be burned for ashes used during the Ash Wednesday service, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

For more information, call the church office at 487-4843.
