LEWISTON – The Rev. Dr. Debbie Little Wyman, founder of Ecclesia Ministries in Boston, will be visiting Trinity Episcopal Church, 247 Bates St., on Sunday, Feb. 12. She will preach at the 9 a.m. Sunday service and will participate in a discussion group following the service.

A second opportunity to hear Little Wyman will be from 1 to 3 p.m. at Trinity. Guests are welcome at both events.

Ecclesia’s history began in the summer of 1994 when Little Wyman began meeting with homeless people on the streets of Boston, offering sandwiches, friendship and referrals.

Ecclesia Ministries has evolved into a church community that engages homeless and privileged people, service providers, clergy, churches, seminarians and others in ongoing activities that work to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of the homeless.

Ecclesia Ministries provides companionship and community to the homeless, a sustaining fellowship that distinguishes Ecclesia from other social service agencies serving the homeless.

Little Wyman is engaged as missioner of the ministry and is working with others who desire to minister to those who feel they cannot enter into church buildings.

Trinity Episcopal Church has had a longstanding presence in the Lewiston community and with the poor and marginalized. It is the home of the Trinity Jubilee Center, which advocates for those in need.

Lunch is served on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and dinner on Thursday and Sunday evenings. Clothing is available and a food pantry is in operation from 9 a.m. to noon Thursdays. All are welcome.
