OUTREACH 

Hospitality Center-- Who We Are

Hospitality Center is an outreach ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee, hosted inside St. Luke's.  The Hospitality Center is a community resource center and meal site which provides service to the homeless and near homeless people of Racine. The Hospitality Center is open to all people without regard to social status, religious, or financial standing. 


No matter what your reason for stopping in, one thing is guaranteed: you won't leave the same as when you entered." We believe that providing hospitality to those who have nowhere to go may lead us to an encounter with Christ, and that by opening our church doors we increase the chance to allow true holiness to find us.


We invite you to "drop-in" and visit.


Racine Vocational Ministries

St. Luke's gives both office space and financial support to this highly successful ministry which offers training for life and work through development of attitudes, habits, and skills that reflect human dignity. 

RVM offers: vocational counseling, job-readiness training, life-skills education job retention support, job-seekers suppose groups, referral services, and spiritual counseling. 

RVM credits their success to believing that each client who walks through their doors is an opportunity to welcome and serve Christ.

Saturday Sack Lunches

Once every three months, St. Luke's, in conjunction with First Methodist Church, produces 70 sack lunches of sandwiches and fruit to deliver to the needy.

The Haiti Project

St. Luke's supports the church, school, clinic, and agricultural program of St. Marc's, Jeannette, Haiti through the Diocese of Milwaukee Haiti Project. Parishioners sponsor students at St. Marc's, make financial donations, and encourage individuals to participate in mission trips and work with our partners in Jeannette.

St. Vincent De Paul Meals

 The St. Vincent de Paul Tuesday Community Meal program began in 1983.  It currently has eleven local churches of various faiths and the Welcome Wagon of Racine organization participating throughout the entire year.  St. Luke's Episcopal Church has supported this important outreach program for many years.

On our designated dates -- four per year -- we provide a hot meal for 50-75 guests.  Our parishioners support this program by preparing about eight to nine casseroles, donating cash so that we can purchase salad, fruit, and bread to complete the meal.  About eight parishioners volunteer their time at the site to serve and clean up after the meal.

This outreach event is appreciated by the people who attend and gives the volunteers a heart-warming feeling.  Stan Timm, Kathie Thompson and Judy Greenquist are the coordinators.

Brotherhood of St. Andrew's

The Brotherhood of St. Andrew was founded in Chicago in 1883. Today it has a worldwide membership of nearly 5,000 Episcopal men dedicated to bringing men and youth to Christ through prayer, study and service. 

The chapter at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church meets monthly to discuss and study the discipline of prayer, the discipline of study and the discipline of service. Funds are raised through the Great Lakes Scrip Center Program to support various church activities and annual scholarships.
