Reaching Out

Reaching out to the community, and reflecting on how these relationships connect with our desire to love and serve God, are an important part of our ministry.


Twice a semester, we visit the elderly residents of Morville House, located just a few blocks away from Northeastern. (See our calendar for dates). Morville House is home to a diverse group of people who are eager to share stories about their lives and to hear about what is going on in the lives of young people today.

In the winter, we volunteer at the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter, preparing and serving dinner to the guests there and enjoying their company for the evening.

In conjunction with the Faith in Action program of Lutheran Ministry in the Fenway, Open Table participates in social justice initiatives and advocacy work throughout the year. Recent initiatives have included support of immigrants and refugees through card-making and letter-writing, through Lutheran and Immigration Refugee Service, and a trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in Ecumenical Advocacy Days for Global Peace with Justice.

Around the World

Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministy at NU has participated in mission and service trips since 2006, often as part of trips sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. We've traveled to Puerto Rico, Kenya, and Israel and Palestine.

We invite you to get involved in some or all of these projects and look forward to hearing your ideas about possible new initiatives. Contact Joyce or Megan to sign up.
