Activities

Organizers for St. Luke’s Annual Coat Drive are preparing for a busy drop-off day on Saturday, November 18,2006 for the parish’s annual cold-weather clothing drive to benefit area social service organizations. Now in its third year, the drive is scheduled as an easy drive-through/drop off at the Church parking lot from10 a.m. – 2 p.m.   

 Last year nearly 900 coats and other articles of warm clothing were collected.   Deliveries were made to Tap-in in Barrington (children’s clothing), along with Amos House, St. Francis Chapel, and St. Patrick’s Church, all in Providence .

 All “gently used” articles of clothing should be clean, and other warm clothing such as hats, scarves, mittens, boots, fleecewear and heavy sweaters will be accepted.

 Other congregations in the community—most notably, St. John’s Episcopal Church—have offered to help with the event by publicizing the Coat Drive in their own parishes and seeking volunteers to assist with deliveries.  

 Volunteers are needed the day of the drive to help sort the clothing and package it into bags in preparation for delivery to the various agencies. In addition, drivers with vans or small pick-up trucks are especially needed to help make deliveries to the agencies from 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, November 20 and 21.

 A collection box will be placed in the St. Luke’s foyer for donations of paper leaf bags and heavy-duty flex force trash bags. Anyone wishing to volunteer at the event, to drive and make deliveries should contact Michele Pimentel 246-2113.  If you are willing to sponsor refreshments (Box o’ Jo, hot chocolate, munchkins, etc., or make a financial contribution for refreshment purchase), please contact Ann Molak at 245-1908.

 

St. Luke's School is collecting  bottle caps from Hood Milk in the Light Block bottles through Oct. 2007.  The school will receive 5 cents for each cap redeemed.  A collection box is at the Church front entrance. The school that redeems the most bottle caps will win a visit by the Boston Red Sox in the Spring of 2007.

Mission Trip  If you are interested in future mission trips please call Marilynn Renner at 245-7337.

St. Luke’s mission trip to H.O.M.E. took place in the summer of 2005.  Spearheaded by parishioners Dave and Marilynn Renner, the trip was a fun, spiritual experience where the true meaning of Christianity was proven by the generous outreach of parishioners to those less fortunate.  This trip was a great way for the young people of the parish to perform community service and have fun in the process.
