Lunch In The Park

Lunch in the Park is a ministry that provides lunch for people following Church by the Pond, a weekly outdoor service near the Bushnell Park carousel in Hartford coordinated by Christ Church Cathedral. The celebrants are Episcopal and Lutheran clergy from Greater Hartford. About 20-60 people, many of them homeless and living in shelters, attend the service and are joined by others gathered just for lunch. 


St. James' is one of many local ecumenical organizations that provide the lunches following the service   St. James' volunteers not only distribute the lunches, but prepare 45-50 bag lunches containing two sandwiches with condiment packets, chips, cookies, fruit and a napkin plus bottled water. In 2024, St. James' is scheduled to prepare and distribute lunches on Saturday, June 29th.
