stlukesimageCampus Ministry is partnering with St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy this Christmas.

Adopt-a-Teenager Program
• St. Luke’s has 200 teenagers in need of adoption for Christmas. The teenagers either live in one of St. Luke’s 24 homes or live in the neighborhood and their families are served by the mission.

  • Purchase a gift set of personal care items. The cost is $12. All the major stores have these gift sets, which include deodorant, lotions and cologne.
  • Upon adoption, you may choose as many teens as you’d like and may indicate if you would prefer boys or girls.

Adopt-a-Family Program
• St. Luke’s has many families who are in need of adoption for Christmas. These families are large and small. Just indicate the size of the family you want and St. Luke’s will match you with a family. The cost is usually about $100 per person. If you desire only to buy a sweater or a few items, we can let you know what items are on a family’s wish list.

The gifts will need to be returned to Campus Ministry by Friday, December 16.

St. Luke’s cares for the most vulnerable and those most in need of God’s children with love and with mercy. The mission does not receive money from the government or the diocese. “Trusting in God’s Divine Providence,” the ministry depends on donations, both big and small, from many individuals who give generously and do so in gratitude of God’s many blessings.
