Former rectory in Lebanon, PA, Diocese of Bethlehem, refitted for outreach and community service:
My Father’s House brings new hope to Lebanon County
My Father’s House, a refurbished apartment attached to the former rectory of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, was recently dedicated for community service. For this project, St. Luke’s partnered with two county agencies, Community Action Partnership and the Coalition to End Lebanon County Homelessness.
The apartment at the rear of 519 Chestnut Street will be used for transitional housing for people in need in Lebanon County. The pilot project received grant money from the Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem through a New Hope Campaign in which funds were solicited for a companion diocese in Sudan, as well as the needy in Pennsylvania.
