Our many thanks to Dolores Kustom for the interesting program on the first years of the development of St. Luke's. It was well attended and appreciated by all.
This was our first GATHERING.
Watch here for October GATHERING announcement.
A year or so ago one of the four crosses on the four pinnacles of the tower was struck by lightening and fell off. This September we were able to have one made, and to make a long story short, had it replaced. It was one of the back side of the four. The task required a crane (left image). and for 3 people to climb up the tower from the inside, install scaffolding to reach the area and replace the new cross. Image on the right shows a man (orange sweatshirt on top of the tower) ready to accept the scaffolding, build it and climb it to place the newly made cross in place. More images to follow. This was a project that was coordinated by Jim Cechetti, our Jr Warden, and was paid for by our insurance company.
Please join us Coffee Hour right after mass, in the Undercroft (downstairs)
Fellowship, snacks and coffee!
Please consider signing up to be the "giver" of coffee hour. Count on about 25 people. Coffee will be prepared. Bring something light for a snack. Fruit, muffins, cheese, anything light. It need not be a banquet. The important part is fellowship, and food is always welcome.
Please continue to pray for
St. Luke’s is a faith community which maintains a fairly high church liturgical tradition and embraces the theological progressive views of the Episcopal Church. Music is an integral part of our worship experience as most services include sung masses, hymns, and choral anthems.
