Greening at St Luke's -- With a Twist
by Charlotte Scromeda
Located in the heart of Chinatown, in a neighbourhood that has the highest concentration of rooming houses in Ottawa, St. Luke's mission has always been very clear: to serve their community and welcome all "without exception" to a contemplative and hopeful environment. Since 1983, its basement has housed St. Luke's Table, formerly St. Luke's Lunch Club, and now a ministry of the Anglican Diocese.
