Sharing through hospitality…. We are blessed with a beautiful building and many spaces of various sizes. We welcome new groups, simply see http://www.stlukesmadison.org/building-use.html for the process to use our space. Some of our groups give nominal offerings; others help us at our seasonal work days gardening and maintaining our building.
We host a number of different evening twelve step groups doing recovery work: COSA, SAA and occasionally DA. They come for weekly meetings and seasonal retreats.
La Leche meets one weekday morning, supporting young moms’ breastfeeding their babies.
Three spiritual directors find quiet space here, to offer spiritual guidance to individual seekers.
Sharing with our neighbors in need… We are a founding member of the faith communities who organize the Schenk Weekend Nutrition program, providing food for needy children at Schenk Elementary school (70% of the children receive free breakfast and lunch during the school week.)
St. Luke's contributes weekly to the St. Stephen's Food Pantry and provides financial support to the local Salvation Army. In addition, our adults and young people ring the bells for The Salvation Army during the Christmas season.
Internationally, we also participate with the Newala-Milwaukee Companion Diocese Relationship and the Haiti Project. We have sent missioners on trips, bought a motorcycle for a traveling priest, sold fair trade coffee and other creative collaborations.
Many of our members are involved in the American Red Cross, Meal on Wheels, Luke House, Goodman Center tutoring, and other community programs.
