Faith Inspires: St. Luke In The Fields

Editor's note: Every week, HuffPost Religion shines a spotlight on religious people doing good work in their communities. If you would like to recommend a faith-inspired organization, initiative or person in your community, send an email to or tweet to @huffpostrelig using the hashtag #faithinspires.

This week's Faith Inspires highlights the Church of St. Luke in the Fields, an inclusive Episcopal church in Greenwich Village in New York City.

St. Luke in the Fields is committed to making a difference in its neighborhood, in greater NYC and in the world. On the block, the church provides a safe space for LGBTQA young people, tutors underachieving youth and creates community for people living with AIDS. In the City, St. Luke in the Fields collaborates with food pantries and homeless shelters. And out in the world, the church has social justice efforts in Myanmar and South Africa.

Their motivation?

"We believe that, as members of the Body of Christ, we have been called to ministries of worship, education, hospitality and witness. We strive to welcome all who come through our doors."

HuffPost Religion applauds the good works of St. Luke in the Fields. Now, we want to hear from you! Who's making a positive impact in your community? Let us know by sending an e-mail to or tweeting to @huffpostrelig with the hashtag #faithinspires.
