Welcome to the "backbone of the Church"...

St. Luke Ladies Philoptochos Society



Ronald McDonald House

Philoptochos committee who prepared & served 100 Greek dinners for the families who are  living at the Ronald McDonald House while their children are being treated at various hospitals in Philadelphia.  This is one of the Philoptochos Outreach Programs, which we are planning on doing twice a year. We also donated $500.00 to the House to be used for families who cannot afford the nominal fee to stay there
