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..."

The Five Marks of Mission of the Episcopal Church
The Mission of the Church Is the Mission of Christ
We recognize with gratitude that the Five Marks of Mission, developed by the Anglican Consultative Council between 1984 and 1990, have won wide acceptance among Anglicans, and have given parishes and dioceses around the world a practical and memorable "checklist" for mission activities.
The Mission of St. Luke's Church is:
"Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly With God"
The Vision of St. Luke's Church is:
To be God's family ...
Joyfully learning to know, to love, to serve Him more fully.
By creating an environment that will sustain and expand our knowledge and understanding of God and His World.
By expressing our love through worship and by sharing our love through fellowship.
By reaching out to others, within both the parish and the community.
