SAINT LUKE’S RECTOR SEARCH

Saint Luke’s is deeply immersed in the exciting process of finding our next Rector. We have completed the Discernment phase, when the Parish considered who we are and what God calls us to become. Now it is time for Recruitment! The Transition page on our website shares the process for application along with information about our Saint Luke’s community. Please take a look and consider if this is where you might be called to lead, grow and serve.

Lisa Baird and Craig Jones are the Co-Chairs of the Recruitment Committee. They can be contacted with any questions or leads on potential candidates. Email Lisa and Craig at rectorsearch@saintlukesdarien.org.

Our Stewardship Campaign is Underway!

During this Annual Pledge Appeal we are asking for your financial commitment for 2020. The Church budget operates on the calendar year and we need your contribution so that we can plan for the next year. Please take the time to make a thoughtful, prayerful decision to support Saint Luke’s. Gratitude is at the heart of the stewardship mission, and the recognition of our many blessings is the foundation of the 2020 Stewardship Campaign.
