Please give thanks for our friends Kent, Judy and Jeff (Wickham, not pictured); for their presence in this community and for their ministries among us. All of us are on a journey, pilgrims on the way; traveling together, from different places to different destinations; progressing at our own pace. Grant that they continue to share their gifts in all the ways that they have been blessed. May their lives shine forth the joy of lifelong learning, an attitude of gratitude and the love of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

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. We are cleared for beginning to offer in-person worship once again. But we remain cautious, 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.
Click here to 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 hours are limited. You may reach staff via email, or by leaving a voicemail, which is checked daily.
