Religious Education will be hosting another Special Holiday Event! Join us for this fun evening, where we’ll be learning a little bit about the season of Lent, focusing on Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday. In addition to learning about the origins and traditions of this series of holidays, participants will get to make no-rise pretzels together online! 

Participants will need: a chalice, 1 tablespoon instant yeast, 1 ½ cups warm water, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon salt—plus a little extra for sprinkling on top, 4 cups of all-purpose flour—plus a little extra for kneading, 1 egg, a bowl and wooden spoon, counter space, a small bowl and pastry brush (or spoon), sheet pan and parchment paper, cooling rack or trivet, oven at 425 degrees.

UUC members and friends of all ages are invited to learn together at this event. For more information, please contact Aria Curtis at aria.curtis@uuchurch.org.
