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..."

Sunday School News
Classes will be held on the first and third Sunday of each month at 10:00 AM. There are classes for preschool through age 15. The 2015 season will begin on Sunday September 20 (Back to Church Sunday!).
Throughout its history, St. Luke's has provided a Sunday School for the children of the church. Led by the parents of our young parishioners, the group has experienced steady growth over the past couple of years. The mission of this group is to introduce the children to the stories and lessons of the Bible along with the history and traditions of the Episcopal Church.
As part of the Sunday School program the children are also introduced to music through the use of instruments and song. The children of St. Luke's Sunday School program participate in several special activities throughout the year. These activities include bowling parties, hayrides, hikes, Easter egg hunts, and the annual Christmas pageant. The Sunday School program serves children from preschool through eighth grade. Currently classes are held at 10 AM on the first and third Sundays of the month, with the exception of summer break.
