St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and the LGBT Center of Greater Reading will host a ribbon-cutting/opening celebration and potluck dinner for the Lebanon County LGBTQ+ community and allies on Wednesday, September 13th from 6:30 – 8:30PM. Registration for the opening event and dinner is encouraged, but not required. Please visit: to register.

The opening of the Center is the culmination of more than a year of planning by a community coalition that includes St. Luke’s, SARCC, The Lebanon Community Health Council, the Chestnut Street Community Center and others. The goal of this coalition has been to build a safer and more affirming environment for Lebanon County’s LGBTQ+ community.

“It is an honor and privilege to provide services and programming to the Lebanon LGBTQ+ community at our newest location,” said Michelle Dech, Executive Director of the LGBT Center of Greater Reading. “We are enormously grateful to the Lebanon-based organizations that have invited and helped us to open this new location. This will be a great addition to ongoing efforts to build a more supportive community for Lebanon’s LGBTQ+ residents.”

The LGBT Center of Greater Reading is a leading provider of support services that include counseling, care coordination, support groups, training/education and more for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies.

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is an open and affirming congregation. St. Luke’s affirms the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and non-binary persons and those who love them!
