7-foot bronze lectern stolen from Wilmington church: Vernon odom reports on Action News at 4:30 p.m., October 5, 2017 (WPVI)

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 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.
