Ministry of Presence
The Ministry of Presence Committee is a confidential ministry composed of dedicated and trained parishioners who are committed to ministering to the sick, shut-in, and members who are at the end of their lives. Overseen by the Rector and led by Kate Deans, this is a ministry of caring, supporting each other and those we visit by being present in pain or loss, sadness or celebration. We are there not to replace clergy presence, but to work alongside – being the caring eyes, ears, and hands of Christ. If you feel called to this ministry, or have any questions or needs- or know of someone who might- please reach out to the parish office at 908.234.0002.
Parish Life Line
The Parish Life Line ministers to our St. Luke’s parishioners in times of need.
The “behind-the-scenes” volunteers of the Parish Life Line delivered over 40 plants and flowers to our parish sick and shut-ins or to those who had lost loved ones or experience a difficult family situation during this past year. In addition, the volunteers prepare meals and help with driving needs to parish families encountering challenging times.
This service is available to all members of the parish when emergency assistance is needed — especially with meals or transportation. If you should have a need, please call the parish office to initiate support.
