WILMINGTON, Del. — A nonprofit group has ordered a $1,000 reward for the return of a bronze lectern that was recently stolen from a Wilmington church.
The nearly 7-foot-tall (2.13-meter) lectern went missing from the Cathedral Church of St. John during the past two weeks. It had sat in the sanctuary for more than a century.
The Ministry of Caring, a nonprofit group that recently purchased the church, said the reward is “no questions asked.”
The ministry is planning to convert the 160-year-old Gothic Revival-style church into apartments for moderate- and lower-income senior residents.
