The bi-annual luncheon for Northern Nevada clergy was held Thursday, October 17, 2013. The event was hosted by Our Lady of Snows Parish Center. In attendance from the International Community of Christ were Gene Savoy Jr., Sean Savoy, Rebecca Willis, and Robert Petrovich.

Most Reverend Randolph Calvo, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Reno, gave the opening prayer. Bishop Gene Savoy Jr. presided over the meeting. Following the lunch, a number of the thirty individuals in attendance made announcements, including a local facilitator for the Affordable Care Act who spoke on some of the act’s details and offered himself as an information aid to congregations. Plans were also made for the 28th annual Thanksgiving Eve Service and the annual Martin Luther King Jr celebration in 2014.

The luncheon, sponsored by the Nevada Clergy Association, has been a biannual event held since 1999. The meeting provides a venue for the coming together of clergy, human services organizations and at times government. Hosting rotates among various congregations and non-profit facilities in the region.
