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..."

Free Noon Meal
St. Luke’s Church participates in the Noon Meal program co-ordinated by the Lebanon County Christian Ministries (LCCM). The program was begun 25 years ago. A group of volunteers meet the third Thursday of each month (except August) to provide, prepare, and serve a nourishing tasty meal to those who are in need. This service is free of charge. Both the LCCM and others donate food for each meal. Co-Ordinator, Lauralee Gebhard, plans the meals and guides and directs the volunteers. The average number served averages well over 100 per month.
This meal does more than feed the hungry. It provides a social time for those who attend and gives them a safe haven in which to rest. In addition, the church Prayer Circle provides prayers for grace as well as prayers for the guests to take home with them…thus providing a spiritual refreshment.
If you would like to partake in the Free Noon Meal, or would like to volunteer or assist, please contact the church 717-272-8251 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
