For over a century, the Advent has hosted the Lenten Preaching Series and Lenten Lunches, a series of daily sermons during Lent with accompanying meals prepared by parishioners. Preachers from around the world attract both those who work in downtown Birmingham and those who make a trip especially for this unique opportunity.
One of the Advent’s most intensive and expansive ministries, the Lenten preaching and lunches nourish both body and soul.
Proceeds from this year’s Lenten Lunches support disadvantaged women and children at Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes and the Anglican Church’s Diocese of Rwanda (Shyira Diocese).
[Anne Lynn Langloh and Theresa Gregory are our 2017 Lenten Lunch Chairs, shown here with Dean Andrew Pearson and Canon Deborah Leighton.]
