THE CALLING OF OUR FOURTEENTH RECTOR

 

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..."

Music

St. Luke's has a rich history of musical excellence. For over a century the church supported a choir that has enhanced and enriched its worship.  That tradition continues today in the St. Luke's Church Choir, St. Luke's Festival Choir, and St. Luke's Handbell Choir.

Led by Choirmaster Bill Claxton and Organist Terry Heisey, our choirs tackle sophisticated literature and the congregation is accustomed to a variety of languages and historical style periods. The St. Luke's Festival Choir is formed from our own members who are joined by voices from throughout the county to share in the rich heritage of Anglican Evensong. The Festival Choir performs entire masterworks, such as Bach Cantatas, The Messiah, and John Rutter's Requiem. Every month from September to June each year the Festival Choir sings Evensong and hosts a variety of choirs, instrumental ensembles, and organists in concert. Other series like this exist in England and major United States cities, including New York, Washington, and Philadelphia, but this is one of the very few outside of major metropolitan areas. We invite your participation in and support of this unique musical experience.
