Please join us for our first TOWN HALL MEETING concerning the Priest Search which will be Sunday October 4, 2015. We will gather for one COMBINED SERVICE at 9 AM (Sung) and meet at 10:30.
Some responses from our Congregation concerning things they find important in searching for our next Rector:
"This seems very important to us, someone who is deeply passionate about the Church and its teachings and who, through a refined and potent set of interpersonal skills, aids others in the development of their own similar passions.."
"We believe that Saint Luke's is blessed with one of the most splendid church buildings in America, and pray that it will continue to be cared for and restored as much as possible. It connects us, in a profound way, with generations of the faithful of Saint Luke's past..."
"The liturgy--how we worship--is very important to us indeed. We treasure the rich and emotionally resonant language of Rite I and find the solemn, serious execution of the most sacred parts of that liturgy to be completely appropriate..."

WELCOME TO FATHER DAVID ZWIFKA, SAINT LUKE’S INTERIM RECTOR
Saint Luke's is happy to welcome our Interim Rector, Father David Zwifka. Fr. Zwifka comes to us from the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania where he served as the Dean of the Harrisburg Convocation of the Episcopal Church and Rector of Saint Mark's Church.

He will begin his tenure with us September 1 and preside over services beginning that week.
