This is parishioner Ella Wickham’s coloring page that she shared during the Jordan-Well Zoom service on Ascension Sunday May 24th. Ella is the 8-year-old daughter of Rachel and Jeff Wickham
Ella explained that she used rainbow colors because that’s the way she sees heaven. She also said she colored the people brown because they were from a place in the world where people are brown.
Brava, Ella! May we all see the world through your eyes!

NEW LETTER FROM FR. DAVID ON REOPENING PROCEDURES:
May 31, 2020
Dear Friends in Christ Jesus,
your vestry and clergy together have developed a set of guidelines, principles, and plans for slowly beginning to re-open and re-gather for worship in our church building. These guidelines have been approved by the bishop, and we are cleared for beginning to offer in-person worship once again. We remain cautious, however, and want to make sure we have everything in place for beginning with healthy, safe precautions in practice by everyone.
Since we have many in our congregation who are older or have heightened immune-system vulnerability, we are moving forward slowly. First -- starting June 7th -- we will begin with small teams to gather with me at the church to help lead 9:15am and 10:30am online worship. Next -- starting between mid-June and early July -- we will begin to open in-person worship for smaller gatherings, with 35 at most at each service (8:00am, 9:15am, and 10:30am). We will continue to livestream our 9:15 and 10:30 service through Zoom, allowing people to participate online.
Attached you will find a reduction of our guidelines that apply to everyone for this next season of our careful re-entry.
DUE TO NEW CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS, St. Luke's office is closed. You may reach staff via email, or by leaving a voicemail, which is being checked several times a day.
