This week's Faith Inspires highlights the Church of St. Luke in the Fields, an inclusive Episcopal church in Greenwich Village in New York City.
St. Luke in the Fields is committed to making a difference in its neighborhood, in greater NYC and in the world. On the block, the church provides a safe space for LGBTQA young people, tutors underachieving youth and creates community for people living with AIDS. In the City, St. Luke in the Fields collaborates with food pantries and homeless shelters. And out in the world, the church has social justice efforts in Myanmar and South Africa.
"We believe that, as members of the Body of Christ, we have been called to ministries of worship, education, hospitality and witness. We strive to welcome all who come through our doors."
