The Maplewood Community Lenten Lunches will be held at various churches in the Maplewood/Richmond Heights area each Wednesday during Lent from noon to 1 p.m. There is no cost for lunch but a free-will donation is collected and shared with Weekend on Wheels, the MRH School food pantry. The pastor at the host church will share a brief devotion at the conclusion of the meal. This is a great way to gather with our neighbors while our bodies and souls are nurtured. Here are the remaining dates and locations for Lenten lunches in 2017:
