Noon Music in Lent

Noon Music in LentThis marks the eleventh year that St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, 33 Chestnut Street, Camden, Maine, will offer Noon Music in Lent, a free program of one-half hour of music in the church, starting at 12 noon, followed by a free lunch of homemade soup, bread and fruit in the Parish Hall. The series’ musicians donate their time and talent. 2018’s free-will offering will be given to the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry.

Jane Schroeder, Minister of Music at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, started the series in 2007 as a way of providing Sabbath time, a pause, a time for reflection at Noon on the six Fridays in Lent. Each year, volunteers sign up as soup makers, bread bakers, fruit providers, servers and cleaner-uppers for the lunch and fellowship following each program.
