Saint Luke Church

     Westport, Connecticut

    Other Activities



In addition to the ministries and activities that are already listed throughout this website, there are many other wonderful things going on at Saint Luke's!!   Here's a sampling of other ways in which you can become involved in the life of our parish:


BLOOD BANK Each July and December (usually during the week before Christmas), Saint Luke Parish hosts an American Red Cross Blood Drive in our Community Room.  Check the bulletin or our News and Events page in early December for the exact date and times.

INTERNATIONAL DINNER Once a year, on the Saturday before Ash Wednesday, we celebrate our roots and show off the cuisines of our various national heritages at this gala tasting buffet.  Watch the bulletin after January 1 or check our News and Events page for more information.

MAILROOM HELP    Our parish periodically has a need to communicate with our parishioners through a large-scale mailing.  The volunteer help in our "mailroom" (which is actually the Rectory dining room!) does all the hands-on work needed to stuff, seal and label the envelopes in preparation for the actual mailing.  Coffee, goodies and friendly conversation are always a part of the mix!  Call the Parish Office at (203) 227-7245 to put your name on the roster.

COMMUNITY COFFEE HOUR One of our favorites!  From October through April, parishioners gather in our Community Room (always beautifully decorated for the season!) after the 9:00 and the 11:00 am Masses on the first and third Sundays of the month to share some goodies and catch up on life with one another.  We're always on the lookout for some additional willing hearts and hands to help with the buying, the decorating and the serving.  If you'd like to help with this wonderful community-building activity, give us a call at the Parish Office (203) 227-7245.


NEW HORIZONS (Senior Citizens)   A very active group of seasoned parishioners!  They have luncheon events in September, December and May, always with an interesting guest speaker or musical entertainment, and a Mass and membership breakfast at the beginning of each Lenten season.  Check our News and Events page for any upcoming events.

NURSERY Nursery care is provided for our youngest parishioners during the 9:00 and 11:00 am Masses each Sunday.  Want to help? 
Give us a call at the Parish Office (203) 227-7245.

PARISH PICNIC (2nd or 3rd Sunday of September, 12:00 Noon to 4:00 pm) Long known around here as "The best bargain in town," our annual Parish Picnic on the back lawn of the Rectory is FREE for all registered parishioners.  There's great cookout food, music, games for all ages (including our famous "Shaving Cream Tug-of-War") and, best of all, a wonderful opportunity to get to know your fellow parishioners. There's all kinds of ways to pitch in and help, too.  Check out the sign-up sheets that are posted in the main hallway of the Parish Center from early August onward. 

PARISH NURSE PROGRAM Under the auspices of Saint Vincent Hospital, the nurses of our parish provide free blood pressure screenings:

after the 9:00 and 11:00 am Masses on the first Sunday and

after the 5:30 pm Mass on the last Saturday of the month. 

Keep an eye on the bulletin or check our News and Events page for their Annual Health Fair, which includes opportunities for a number of different health screenings (including cholesterol checks and mammograms).
