The venue for the 2020 Lumen Gentium Awards Dinner - Twin River Convention Center, Lincoln - can no longer accommodate the rescheduled 8th Annual Lumen Gentium Awards Dinner Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - now or in the foreseeable future. We have searched Rhode Island to find another suitable and open venue for the size and format of our dinner with no success. For that reason, the 8th Annual Lumen Gentium Awards recognition will be a small private event. Thank you.
