Nauvoo’s Christ Lutheran Church hosted its seventh annual St. Patrick’s Day corned beef and cabbage dinner last Saturday. An excellent meal, complete with a tantalizing array of desserts, was enjoyed by all. “Locals” and people from nearby towns, gathered to “catch up” with each other, and lingered long after their meals were consumed. Two weeks ago, the Nauvoo United Methodist Church held its annual turkey pot pie dinner-another outstanding meal. Sts. Peter and Paul Church’s annual God’s Portion Day dinner, in November, is also eagerly anticipated. Nauvoo’s churches are known for their excellent meals. Times of fellowship are thoughtfully crafted with delicious food and colorful decorations. Memory-making opportunities abound, and they linger long after the last guest has left, the kitchens are clean, and the lights are turned off. Church-supper memories are a long-standing part of Nauvoo’s heritage. The Nauvoo Historical Society commends our churches and those who faithfully continue such important community traditions.
