 Bombay who granted sanction by an order No. J/4/91/85/8383 dated 9.4.1986 under section 36 of the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950. 82 flats in two buildings were thus constructed by M/s Poornima Promoters. Applications were invited from members of four ex - Anglican Churches of Pune - St. Mathew’s, Holy Angel, St. Mary’s (Kirkee) and Church of the Holy Name through Parish Priests of their respective churches. After thorough personal interviews and genuine need of low income group Christians, ownership flats were alloted and the housing project was inaugurated on 15th August, 1999. The flat owners have not yet formed a Co-operative housing Society and the affairs of the buildings are managed by a Managing Committee Consisting of Enoch Rathod, Enoch Tribhuvan, Steven Magar, Barnabas Sunny, Veronica Balid, Suhasini Farande & Nutan Kore. Major expenses on the maintenance of the building are borne by BDTA and so far they have incurred an expenditure of about Rs. Four Lakhs.

The Trust known as Society of Saint John the Evangelist was operating in Guruwar Peth area of Pune, By a decree passed in Civil Suit. No. 3811 of 1965 in the City Civil Court, Bombay various properties held by this Trust were transferred to BDTA. Thus the properties at C.T.S No.1 at Guruwar Peth Pune now vest with BDTA who leased it out to its beneficiaries at a reasonable premium for St. Lukes Cooperative Housing Society. An amount of Rs. 3,00,000/- (Rs. Three Lakhs) was paid to the Trust on 14.5.1990. Contributions were collected by 100 persons at the rate of Rs. 3,000/- each.
