RAIHN HOSTING AT ASSUMPTION
RAIHN is the Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network. RAIHN
provides food and shelter to families with children who would otherwise be
homeless. Several area churches around Rochester provide sleeping quarters
for up to five families. Each host church provides this help for one week.
Currently, the rotation period is about 13 weeks. The families are served
dinner at the host church and spend their days at the RAIHN day center (or at
school or work).
St. Luke’s is a “support parish” for our local host, Church of the Assumption
in the village of Fairport. We serve dinner and provide other volunteer tasks
on the Tuesday and Wednesday during the rotation. Food is usually provided
by the volunteers and prepared at home, and there are some resources for
additional food or supplies. Usually, six or eight volunteers spend the
evening at CotA, and one volunteer spends the night. A few more volunteers
drop off food. The families sleep in private rooms (classrooms and meeting
rooms) on the lower level. CotA has a nice kitchen, and the gym is usually
available for playtime after dinner.
If you’re interested in volunteering or providing part of a meal, please
contact Gary Gocek at 585-747-1588 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next rotation
is May 23-24. RAIHN is a non-profit organization that accepts tax-deductible
donations, see raihn.org.
The second evening we provide dinner and fellowship to RAIHN quests at Assumption.
ST. LUKE’S QUILTING BEE
Our fall sewing day is scheduled for Saturday, October 7. The time is 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. or any time in between. We welcome anyone interested in this ministry. Call Mary Ellen McDougal at

RUMMAGE SALE - HELP NEEDED!!!
ST. LUKE’S Fall RUMMAGE SALE PREPARATION AND INTAKE, Oct 22nd through Oct 25th, 2017.
The St.Luke's Fall Rummage Sale will take place Oct 26-Oct 28, with setup beginning Sunday Oct 22.
How can you help?
First, save and bring items to be sold. Clothing, household goods, books, toys-almost anything except large furniture and electronics (we have to pay to recycle them if they don’t sell).
Second, help with setup and pricing on Sunday through Wednesday.
Third, help on the days of the sale, with checking people out, taking money, and carrying items to cars (great to have a couple men for this!) Finally, after the sale ends at noon on Saturday, come to help clean up- delivering unsold goods to our shed or to Goodwill, picking up sale signs, breaking down cardboard boxes and returning the Great Hall to Sunday shape. There will be a signup sheet, or just stop by when you can. Many hands make the jobs easier, so please do what you can to help the Rummage Sale make its budget requirement of $2,500. If you have questions, or suggestions, contact any team member.
Thank you! Marti St. George, Cathy Thayer, and Mary Jo Hazelden (your Rummage Sale Team).
