Various churches sponsor a soup and bread lunch beginning February 10th and ending March 16th.  They are all held at St, Joseph’s Catholic Church on South High Street at noon on most of the Wednesdays in Lent and whatever church sponsors the luncheon, provides the soup,bread, and speaker.  First Church will sponsor the luncheon on March 16th.  This tradition has been a long standing one here in Bridgton and a time for the community to get together during Lent and share a meal and listen to some of the clergy in town.
