"If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him."SLS Jr. Service Ministry
Join us, using your time, talent and treasure to help meet the needs of others…through service!
- Our mission is to offer students in grades K-8 opportunities to put into action the teachings of Jesus to love & serve one another.
- Service can be as simple as making bookmarks to accompany the books collected for Hasbro Children's Hospital or as involved as making lunches for the needy at Sandwich Club.
- Service projects will be listed here as they become available. Some projects will be limited to the number of student volunteers we can take.
- Jr. SM generally meets once a month.
- Service hours are granted to middle school students.
- Parent permission slips are required to participate.
- Students assemble 200 or more sandwiches and bag food items which will be distributed by our Loaves & Fishes ministry to our neighbors in need without shelter.
- Sandwich Club meets generally the 1st Friday of every month in the church basement. If you would like to participate, you will find monthly reminders in The Link to sign up.
- If you are interested in sponsoring part or all of this event in memory or honor of someone, please contact Cindy Osmanski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blankets for Project Linus
Make Bookmarks for Children at Hasbro Children’s Hospital
- The quilts provide security, warmth and love to our local young children in need. Blankets will be distributed by the RI Chapter to children in crisis and in need of a “blanket hug” as is said at Project Linus.
Bookmarks will be distributed with donated books, collected in the Usher’s Closet in the foyer of St. Luke’s Church.

Backpacks are filled with essential items, toiletries & rosaries for our local homeless Veterans and are distributed through the Outreach Ministry at St. Luke’s Church by ‘We Share Hope’ in Warren, RI. The organization’s mission is to “share what we have been given with those who are in need” – such as food, and non-food items to the homeless, working poor, underprivileged, underemployed and children living in poverty.
