New Commemorative Gifts Program


Interior of St. Luke Church

After five years of renovation work to the exterior of St. Luke Church, our 125th Capital Campaign Committee is now shifting focus to the interior ... to revitalize the lighting, painting, deep cleaning, and restoring the beauty of its original design. To make all of this possible, we invite friends of St. Luke to consider making a commemorative gift that will honor a loved onewhile helping us polish our jewel.

Help the Hungry,
Save our Planet

Our Feed the Hungry Ministry has been selected to benefit from Fresh Thyme grocery store's Giving Bag Program. For every $2.99 reusable shopping bag sold during May, the store at  7501 North Avenue will donate $1 to the Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry, which serves the North Lawndale and Little Village neighborhoods in Chicago. It's a great time to help the environment and some families in need with each bag purchased. And while you're at the store, remember to pick up some non-perishable food and personal care items to place in our pantry collection baskets at Sunday Mass.
