Society of St Luke (SSL)

Introduction to the community

The Society of St Luke was established by the Christian Deaf Community (CDC) of the Middle East. CDC is an Anglican Religious Community within the Province of Jerusalem. Initially SSL focused upon the two schools for deaf youngsters situated in Beirut (Lebanon) and Salt (Jordan.) Times have changed since those roots were set down. The Society today, while remembering the schools in prayer and where possible giving financial support to them, has broadened its mission. It became a charity in 2004 with its primary aims of providing ‘prayer for the suffering world’ and ‘relief and support to those who come for help and counsel.’ These aims reflect the Anglican Church’s mission of ‘care and prayer’.
