The St. Luke Altar Rosary Society is composed of parish members who want to grow spiritually through devotion to the Queen of the Rosary. Meetings are preceded by the recitation of the rosary to secure her patronage and for the mutual spiritual benefit of all members throughout the world.  Entrusted with the care of the Altar, the Society has fund raisers to purchase candles for the church an provide the linens for the Altar.

A typical meeting may consist of a speaker, discussion of church needs or fundraisers, followed by refreshments and a social hour. Special events are held at Christmas, Mother's Day, and a spring picnic.

Members of the Altar Rosary Society are often called upon to host social gatherings after the many special events held at the church. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00p.m. in the Martha and Mary Room.  Recitation of the rosary begins at 6:45pm.


Holy Name Society

Purpose

The Confraternity of the Most Holy Names of God and Jesus (Holy Name Society) promotes reverence for the Sacred Names of God and Jesus Christ, obedience and loyalty to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and the personal sanctification and holiness of its members. Members are called to contribute to the evangelization mission of the Church and to make perpetual acts of reverence and love for our Lord and Savior. The apostolate of the society is to assist in parish ministries by performing the Corporal Works of Mercy: to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, shelter to the homeless, tend the sick, visit those in prison, and bury the dead; as well as the Spiritual Works of Mercy: to convert sinners, instruct the ignorant, counsel the wayward, comfort the sorrowing, bear adversity patiently, forgive offenses, and pray for the living and the dead.  

A very active group, the Holy Name members meet the first Wednesday of every month in the St. Peter room and is open to all who would like to join.

The Knights of Columbus are a men's social and service group that supports the work of the parish on many levels.  The Council was originally founded in 2002 through the efforts of the St. Luke men. It is named after Bishop James Malone, past Bishop of the Youngstown diocese.  The council is very active in the parish and provides funds for various projects, sponsors parish events and assists in Liturgical celebrations when needed.
