Today, more than 70 years later, the Lutheran Lay Fellowship of

and friendship in four high rises owned and managed by Fellowship Square
Foundation, Inc. By means of annual scholarships and grants, LLF also supports
various college and seminary students; it also provides ushering services for
major inter-Lutheran events. But most of all, LLF is known far and wide as a
place to hear stimulating speakers on timely topics and to make friends from
other Lutheran congregationsfriendships that last for decades!
