Bread for the World Event in NYC

HNP Communications Around the Province

NEW YORK — Jesuits, Lutherans and Presbyterians are partnering to host the Metropolitan New York Bread for the World Gathering at 10 a.m. on March 13 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Hosted at Advent Lutheran Church, the event will feature Art Simon, founder of the interfaith effort to solve hunger around the world.

Simon is no stranger to the Province, having spoken last year at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Raleigh, N.C. His message is one closely in line with the Province’s justice and peace advocacy efforts to feed the hungry.

All are welcome to the event at which Simon will sign his new book, The Rising of Bread for the World.

Bread for the World, founded in 1974, is looking to increase the involvement of New York City individuals and parishes in its work, according to J. Elise Brown, pastor of Advent Lutheran Church.

The program is sponsored by the New York Province of the Society of Jesus, the Presbytery of New York City, Advent Lutheran Church, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Our Saviour’s Atonement Lutheran Church, Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church, Trinity Lutheran Church/Lower East Side, and Seafarer’s and International House, a hospitality ministry of the Lutheran Church.

Participants are asked to register online. Questions may be directed to Samantha McLane at

Advent Lutheran Church is located at 2504 Broadway near 93rd Street.
