For the past 20 years, several churches have spent Wednesday nights together during the season of Lent. The Rev. Colin Kelly of Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church (TOTH), said, back in 1987, he and the Rev. Calder Gibson of Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church (BELC) and the Rev. Gus of Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church (IHM) created Ecumenical Lenten Wednesdays in Los Alamos.The five-week shared program has been a tradition for many churchgoers in Los Alamos, a part of the life cycle of Christian practice for them and a 20-year habit. People come to eat, learn and worship with their friends from other congregations, a joyful activity that isn’t often possible on Sunday mornings.Kelly said for the past 20 years, the format of Lenten Wednesdays has remained the same. The churches welcome anyone in the community for a homemade soup and bread supper at 6 p.m., classes for all ages at 6:40 p.m. and worship at 7:30 p.m. Each church takes a turn at organizing the soup supper, offering its choir at worship and ministers as presider and preacher. The classes for all ages are led by members of all three churches.This year, Ecumenical Lenten Wednesdays are being held at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 2390 North Road.
