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.
