Calvary Episcopal Church has been inviting the Memphis community into its doors every weekday of the Lenten season for the past 90 years for its annual Lenten Preaching Series. The series, running from Feb. 14 to March 22 in 2013, invites anyone in to hear a 35-minute preaching series from 12:05 p.m. to 12:40 p.m.
The popular Waffle Shop is open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. offering traditional favorites like homemade waffles, salads and daily specials. Many of the recipes are the same ones offered since the tradition began in 1923.
And attendance at the preaching series isn't a requirement to enjoy lunch. Take-out orders and pre-ordered lunches to go are also available for this culinary rite of passage for many Downtown Memphians. A wide variety of menu options and prices are available and can be found on the church's website.
The speaker series features a wide range of national and local spiritual leaders from a variety of denominations and religions.
