Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:21).
Individuals, and mission and service teams from our parish have been involved in programs abroad (Romania, Guatemala, Tanzania, Ukraine, China, Korea, Vietnam, Russia) and in Mexico (Project Mexico) and Indian reservations (YOCAMA) in New Mexico and Montana.
Projects have included construction and teaching, while witnessing our faith to those we are working for and with.
Each summer St. Luke’s sends a team or teams – composed of adults and youth – to specific destinations. Our church has been generous in not only providing financial support for these teams but has also donated clothing, books and school supplies.
“The call to missions belongs to each of us, but our answer to this call may take many different forms. For some it may be financially supporting the work of missions, for some it may be volunteering for an Orthodox Mission Team, and for others it may mean spending years abroad to offer a living witness to Christ as a foreign missionary; in all of us it should include prayer.” (Orthodox Christian Mission Center, St. Augustine, Florida)
