Since 1981, First Presbyterian Church has hosted an annual Christmas Eve dinner for the lonely, poor, or homeless of Richmond, Kentucky.  This dinner is inspired by Dr. Peter Marshall's minister to the homeless of Washington, D.C. (for whom this dinner was originally named).  

The guests include those in the community whose opportunities for fellowship at Christmas are few.  These "honorees" have grown in number since its humble beginnings.  Many of the guests have found a Christmas Eve home at this dinner every year since the beginning.  Others have only been passing through Richmond and have been led thorough outreach to First Presbyterian Church for the warmth and fellowship of a Christmas Eve meal.  

(This mission dinner is also named for Ginny Moretz, a former member who was the great organizer and facilitator of this event in its early days.)
