“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and will be repaid in full.” Proverbs 19:17
St. Luke’s has a longstanding tradition of providing gifts during the holidays for families and individuals who find themselves in need. We do this by working with several organizations with whom we have an especially warm relationship. Our dear friend, the late Rosanne Morey, had championed these initiatives for many years. The project, known as the Christ Child Project, was renamed in 2010 to the Rosanne Morey Christ Child Project in her honor.
There are many ways to participate in the Project:
• Sponsor a family for Christmas – The Youth Consultation Service in East Orange, NJ provides highly-structured support to children with special needs. You gift helps St. Luke’s sponsor multiple families of YCS children.
• Purchase a Gift for Apostle’s House – Apostle’s House in Newark provides transitional housing to adult men. St. Luke’s has supported these men with gifts of toiletries, socks, and sweatshirts for many years.
• Make a Monetary Donation – Donations can be made by noting “Rosanne Morey Christ Child Project” when giving online through our Realm database.
Please contact the Parish Office with any questions or to make a donation.
