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..."

St. Luke's Festival Choir is a community choir of singers from several faith traditions united by a love for traditional sacred music sung in the setting for which it was intended. The Choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings and sings one Sunday evening each month Sept. to June. The Sunday evenings are usually Evensong (using service music and anthems written for this ancient Anglican Vespers service) followed by a concert of sacred or classical music by an organist or instrumental ensemble, but the Choir also sings longer services (Advent and Epiphany services of lessons and carols) and major works (a Requiem each Nov. and several Bach cantatas with chamber orchestra). We welcome inquiries from Bill (507-1901) or Terry (926-9687) and your participation.
