Each month (October through May) various St. Luke parish organizations, families, Confirmation candidates, and parishioners plan, prepare, and serve dinner at an overnight shelter for the homeless organized by Housing Forward (formerly P.A.D.S.). The groups always enjoy providing a tasty and plentiful meal for the approximately 50 guests. In addition to the monthly dinners, a number of parishioners volunteer on a regular basis at some of the other Housing Forward shelters that serve more than two dozen communities in the western suburbs.
To volunteer to help with the dinners, contact Laura Connelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-828-4936 or Meg Francis at email@example.com or 312-209-0131.
