Ecumenical Lenten services Wednesdays

The Jamestown Ministerial Association will again host ecumenical Lenten services.

The first one will be at Ave Maria Village Wednesday. A lunch will be served beginning at 11:45 a.m. and the service begins at 12:15 p.m. The topic is “I Was Hungry and You Fed Me,” from Matthew 25:35.

A freewill donation will be collected at the door to cover the lunch expenses and also assist the Homeless Coalition of Jamestown.

All are invited to attend. The front entrance of Ave Maria may be used, and the service will be in its new chapel.

This year’s theme for the Lenten services is that of service, based on the Sermon on the Mount from the Gospel of Matthew. A simple soup and sandwich lunch will be served at each service site at 11:45 a.m. and services will begin at 12:15 p.m. Services will be no longer than 30 minutes, allowing people to return to work by 1 p.m.
