Sunday, March 12, 2017 Is The Day Of Change
On Sunday, March 12, we “spring ahead.” Set your clocks forward one hour before retiring on Saturday night. We all lose that hour of sleep we gained back in November.
In addition to setting your clocks forward one hour, remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. And then, finally, take the loose change that’s been accumulating on top of your dresser, or empty that special jar where you put your pocket money at the end of the day, or scoop out the coins in the bottom of your purse. Bring all of your loose change to church on March 12 and put it in the kettle in the church narthex. All proceeds are donated to the Food Pantry Network of Licking County!
It’s the “Day of Change” – for clocks and for all those who will receive food as the result of St. Luke’s generosity. ~ Father A

The group reaches this goal through grant funding as well as communicating the service work St. Luke’s members do each day throughout the parish and the surrounding community. In 2014, Outreach funded a number of efforts, including the following:
