Serving our community in the name of Jesus Christ

The Outreach Committee brings before the parish the needs of people outside the congregation in the local community, on deanery and diocesan levels, as well as throughout the Church and the world. The committee recommends opportunities for service through parishioners giving time, talent and treasure. 

Annual Grant

Through a process of education and fundraisers, we present a financial grant (and hands on support when possible) to assist an organization’s efforts. Previous grant recipients have been Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen & Pantry, Habitat for Humanity, Queens Community House and North Brooklyn Angels.

Our 2024 grant recipient is Forestdale, Inc.

We are collecting funds during our Sunday Hospitality Hour and at special events during the year in order to make an impact with a check at the end of the year. During Lent some of our parishioners also keep Mite boxes to donate towards the grant recipient.


Queens Community House

St. Luke’s has an ongoing relationship with the Queens Community House to support their programs for struggling families and senior citizens in our community. Located on 63rd Drive, the Community House is a settlement house that runs after-school programs, a nursery school, a senior center, and other essential services. On the first Sunday of the month, Saint Luke’s stocks the emergency food panty to benefit women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. In addition, each December we contribute holiday presents for children in need.


Thank you to all who helped prepare Easter baskets for the children served by Queens Community House!
