Luke is an outstanding example of a servant of Christ. As Jesus said, “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40)…so Luke has been serving Christ through his dedicated service to those in need.
Ever since being inspired through his involvement in the 8th grade A.C.T.S. program…he has continued volunteering at the St. Francis Seraph Soup Kitchen in Over the Rhine all through four years of high school at St. Xavier. He does it year-round…even during the summer.
Luke expanded his service to include volunteering with the English as a Second Language program at St. Leo’s and also helping with the religion prep program here at Visitation. He has also been involved in the Outreach Ministries Committee as well as serving as the “Youth Representative” on our Parish Council.
At St. Xavier, Luke has been in charge of the “Shadowing” program for incoming students for the last two years and was also a Kairos leader this year.
Topping it off…Luke recently received the prestigious “Jesuit Network Award” at graduation. This award goes to one student who exemplifies the profile of an Ignatian educator by: animating the Ignatian vision; caring for the individual; modeling Ignatian pedagogy; discerning ways of teaching and learning; and building community and fostering education.
Luke will be majoring in Mechanical Engineering this fall at the Ohio State University.
Kudos Corner thanks and salutes Luke Striebich for his dedicated service to the parish as well as all he’s done in living his Catholic faith and making a huge difference!
