September Pastoral Message




I pray my letter finds you and yours in good health. Normally at this time of the year, our St. Luke Community would be actively preparing for the Greek Affair. Unfortunately, due to the current healthcare environment and social restrictions, the Greek Affair Committee had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Greek Affair. We want to thank the entire St. Luke Community and all previous chairpersons and volunteers for 43yrs of amazing Greek Affair stewardship!


The Greek Affair Committee is working closely with the Parish Council to identify alternative fund-raising opportunities to help mitigate the loss of revenue in 2020 that is typically generated from the Greek Affair. In parallel, we are committed to bringing the 43rd Annual Greek Affair to first responders and to local shelters in our community. We intend to share our blessings in the form of philanthropic donations of food and pastries. Additional details will be forthcoming.


We look forward to new and unique fellowship opportunities in 2020 and will begin planning for Greek Affair 2021 in the very near future! 


I will certainly miss working side by side with you and greeting you throughout the Greek Affair this year. However, I will see you in the eyes of every first responder and needy family I look forward to delivering Greek Affair foods in the weeks and months to come.



Brotherly, I remain in His Loving Service.
