St. Luke's is a true neighborhood Church on the near west side of Cleveland. Many if not most of the congregation walks to church. Following Church is a meal that feeds both those who consider themselves members and neighborhood children who have come with their friends to a warm, safe place to find food and play. St. Luke’s offer’s a place for the suburban parishes to do outreach and to serve their neighbors. Monday nights the Church passes out clothing and personal items, as well as being a distribution point for the Cleveland Food Bank. Wednesday night there is a Community Meal and place for children and youth to play basketball, St. Luke is a parish that loves God and their neighbor.
The area that St. Luke’s and community that St. Luke’s serves is on the cusp of urban renual and gentrification. While this may offer the Church an opportunity to evangelize to a new group of people, it will also certainly displace many of the members as well as the people they now serve. St. Luke’s is looking for a person who can help them be a part of the solution in a proactive way.
This position is being posted as interim, but could also be a 3 year Priest in Charge.
