This is the sixth year for our 9/11 memorial program. Each year we display the relics which were given to St. Luke Parish as a remembrance. This is a steel beam from the World Trade Center. Behind the beam is a Icon of St. Nicholas with the World Trade Center and St. Nicholas Church in the background, both destroyed on that tragic day.

Scene from St. Luke's Attends Evangelism Conference

Six of St. Luke parishioners traveled to the Antiochian Village at Legionnaire, Pennsylvania to attend the conference on Evangelism. The conference was devoted to establishing Orthodox Christian Fellowship programs in colleges and universities. This is one area in which we need to establish a ministry to work with our own college bound students.

St. Luke's Hosts Blood Drive

This year we had two health events: our annual blood drive and Life line Screening. For the blood drive, we exceeded our goal of 24 pints of blood. Sharon, the ministry leader, thanks all who participated.

Life line screening is an organization which travels around the country setting up health screening day programs. They screen for possible stroke and osteoporosis. Although we could have had a better turn out if we save the life one it was a success. Next year we will have the program again.
