St. Luke’s Women’s Group
Wanting to find a way to connect with other women or men in the congregation? Each month our women’s group, and men’s group gather for socialization, spiritual growth, and general bonding outside of worship. Both groups lead parish wide events throughout the year including community service opportunities. Our women’s group also plans several retreat getaways throughout the year. This is an excellent way to form lasting friendships with the members of the church.
The St. Luke’s Women’s Group comes together to strengthen our spiritual lives. Our goal is to provide a safe place for every woman to be who God created her to be!
Where do we meet?
We meet on the first Sunday of the month, excluding the months of July and December. We gather in the library at 12:30 p.m. for food and friendship, and then move to the St. Antony Room for our meeting which lasts until 2:00 p.m.
What do we do?
During our meetings we do things like: make plans for our group events, share in discussion, and pray together and for one another. Our areas of focus are: Service, Spirituality, Social and Study.
