Outreach

Welcome to the Mission Field.

As part of our Mission for Ministry, St. Luke’s engages in outreach through both parish-led and community programs. Often that work is led by members of St. Luke’s serving as volunteers in our community, drawing on our church family for support of their ministries. Below is a partial list of ministries, nonprofits, and outreach opportunities the community of St. Luke’s provided financial assistance, volunteers, or other material and pastoral support to in the past year.

Loaves and Fishes to Go is an important St. Luke’s Outreach Ministry. We provide a meal the second Sunday of each month to the Cleveland Emergency Shelter. In 2021 a home cooked meal, generously provided by our parishioners, was served to over 400 people. I would like to thank the volunteers that helped provide these meals. If you feel called to serve in this ministry, we would love you to join us!
