Wednesday evening, March 13, for Lent at Holladay UCC,  there will be a light supper at 6 p.m. followed by making prayer pretzels at 6:30 p.m. and games to play while the pretzels bake.

As legend has it, in medieval times monks made pretzels as a way of teaching younger monks to pray with folded arms. The three holes in a pretzel symbolized the Trinity. Thus we’ll make pretzels to remember prayerful reverence.

Wrapup and cleanup will be finished by 7:30 p.m. If you want to help with the necessary chores or bring food, check out the instructions.
