At Saint Luke’s, we call it LifeWorks – our mission to build ongoing mutual relationships that allow us to work alongside our neighbors. Our goal is to make opportunities more accessible, engaging, and spiritual for all parishioners. 

We are God’s hands in the world. Try something new and make a difference.


There are many ways to volunteer as lay ministers. 



Person-to-Person, , is located on the Saint Luke’s campus as well as Stamford and Norwalk. P2P provides emergency food, clothing, financial assistance, campership and scholarships to individuals and families in need. Middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adults of all ages are needed. Opportunities range from weekly shifts to one-time efforts such as food drives and social sorting circles.

Run with the Saints

Saint Luke’s will be hosting it’s 5th Annual Run with the Saints 5K and 1 Mile race on Sunday, November 7th after our 10:00 AM worship service. More information to come!


On the first Saturday in May, we assemble a team to participate in a HomeFront project. We help a neighboring homeowner fix up his/her residence, making it safer, warmer, and more attractive. We fix siding, roofs, decks, paint, replace windows, clean up yards, trim trees, and more. If you are 14 or older, please consider setting aside a portion of this day for some hard work, warm camaraderie and a great feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. Contact Wilder Gleason.
This past fall we did a special project and you can see the results as it was highlighted on our local news.


Dove boxes

Every year Person-to-Person organizes a special food drive around the Christmas holidays. White paper doves are selected by parishioners who then shop for food, which is packaged and delivered to families who would otherwise go without food during the holidays. Contact Sally Houlihan or Amy Rebbechi.


Pacific House

Pacific House is the homeless men’s shelter on Pacific Street in Stamford. Once a month volunteers cook dinner in the Saint Luke’s kitchen, drive to the shelter and serve dinner to the residents. All men and women are welcome to join in this ministry. Contact Ed Lyons.


Laundry Love

A collaborative effort of four parishes led by Saint Mark’s, New Canaan, Laundry Love assists the homeless and those in need with their laundry. On the first Wednesday afternoon of each month at a laundromat in East Norwalk, we provide fellowship, pizza and free washer/dryer use for those who need it. Contact Fred Elliott.
