Every year, the Grand Island Ministerium puts together a Lenten Luncheon series. There are five churches that are members of the ministerium: Saint Stephen Roman Catholic Church, Trinity United Methodist Church, Saint Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church, Saint Timothy Lutheran Church, and Island Presbyterian Church. All clergy from these churches attend meetings of the ministerium, where they plan events, such as the Lenten Luncheon series. The clergy chooses a different theme for the Lenten luncheons each year. This year, the theme is the gifts of the spirit.
The first Lenten luncheon was held on Wednesday, March 8th, and the speaker was the Rev. Paul Nogaro, pastor of Saint Stephen Roman Catholic Church.
|All of the Lenten luncheons are held at Trinity United Methodist Church. In addition to a delicious meal and an inspiring message, there is a little boutique, with jewelry and other hand crafted items from artisans around the world.|
|The products are colorful and well designed.|
|They look as if they are made with love.|
