Martha “Marty” Nagy is the speaker at this week's Community Lenten Luncheon.
The luncheons take place from noon to 1 p.m. every Wednesday during Lent at Emmanuel United Methodist Church, 75 East Ave.
Nagy, a registered nurse and holder of a Bachelor of Arts degree in pastoral health ministry, recently completed service as the executive director of Lockport Community Action Response Emergency Shelter, Inc., also known as Lockport CARES.
A member of the CARES founding committee, Nagy will speak about the non-profit organization's contributions to the community over the past 11 years and how faith in God directed the ministry to help men, women and families in need.

The cost is $8 per person. The cafeteria line opens about 11:50 a.m. The entree this week is ham and scalloped potatoes.
