St. Luke’s Outreach
In the Gospel of St. Matthew, Jesus explains how God will respond to the righteous when they ask, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink?” He says that God will answer, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
The St. Luke’s Outreach Team seeks to serve the least of our brothers and sisters by participating in a number of projects throughout the year. In the fall, we raised funds and collected toiletries for Canterbury Bridge, a ministry that assists homeless San Jose State students. In December, we collected Christmas presents for children served by the Santa Maria Urban Ministry in San Jose, and we collected items for the refugee program run through the Jewish Community Center as well. We participated in a service project on Martin Luther King Day at Sacred Heart Community Services, and our spring project will be a day of food preparation and meal service at the San Jose City Team shelter. We look forward to completing more service projects throughout the rest of the year, as we strive to be Jesus’s feet in the world.
