St. Luke's Episcopal Church Dixon, IL
Our Sunday worship is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, also called the Mass. During this service we gather together to hear God's Word in Holy Scripture, to pray together, and to celebrate the Liturgy of the Lord's supper, or Holy Communion.

Christmas Lessons and Carols
December 23, 2018 at 5pm
The CANTERBURY SINGERS Timothy Boles, conductor Ross Jallo, organ. This promises to be our most joyful and moving Christmas event yet!
Stunning choral music for Christmas, from traditional favorites such as The Holly and the Ivy to the haunting beauty of Herbert Howells'20th century masterpiece Here is the Little Door. In between, Organist Ross Jallo will perform musical selections on the majestic 80 rank pipe organ at St. Luke's Church, and lead us in singing carols of the season. Take time out from the bustle of holiday preparations for an hour of beauty, peace and contemplation.
Our new banner, soon to be a permanent sign!

Rectory Open House
Dear friends of St. Luke's,
Last Sunday, in church, I announced that Terri and I will be hosting a "Christmas Open House" at our home, aka "The Rectory" on Sunday, December 16th from 1-4 p.m. All of you are warmly invited to drop in for hot cider and other Christmas goodies. Also, please feel free to bring friends and family with you. Children are especially welcome. Finally, if you are so moved, we ask that you bring with you an ornament for our tree, especially ones with a local connection. We have come to love Dixon, and have lost many ornaments over the years in our moves to serve other churches.
God's Blessings to you at this special time of year, and we hope to see you not only in church but at our Christmas open house on December 16th.
Fr. Wes & Terri
Rectory address: 209 West 3rd Street, Dixon.
Dear Book Lusters,
We had such a good meeting Tuesday! Because our snow removal contractor could not guarantee that the church sidewalks would be cleared by our meeting time, Dolores Kustom graciously shared her lovely home with us. The Thirteenth Tale generated lots of good discussion and favorable reviews.
We selected some future dates and book titles, as follows:
December 11 Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. This is our Christmas party; bring wine or hors d’oeuvres and your own
Questions or analysis for discussion about our book. Dolores Kustom and Joyce U will provide information
about the author.
January 8 A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. This is our 15th birthday party! We’ll meet at That Place on Palmyra
at 1 p.m. [please note the change in time] Deb Duerst will lead our discussion
February 26 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Robbie Dillon will lead the discussion and provide treats.
March 26 Outlander by Diane Gabaldon. Liz Nagy will lead the discussion and provide treats.
Looks as if we have lots of good reading ahead of us! Hope to see you at all of these gatherings.
