Outreach NewsOutreach is one of the core values of Saint Luke’s Parish. We have always been an active and generous parish and we continue to be. Saint Luke’s set aside and raised funds to give Person-to-Person its start over 40 years ago, for example. Through the years, our outreach missions have changed but have never stopped. Today, our Outreach efforts continue and are funded largely through the parish’s annual budget and dedicated funds raised through the Capital Campaign. Additional funds are raised through the Christmas and Easter offerings and at the annual Tag Sale each spring.
