Saint Luke’s is deeply immersed in the exciting process of finding our new Rector. We have completed the Discernment phase, when the Parish considered who we are and what God calls us to become. We are currently interviewing candidates. It is a dynamic time for our Parish and we are very excited about the future.

Pathways – Queer Theology for the Episcopal Church with Sara Misgen
9AM in the Parish Hall
Come learn about the basics of queer theology, and how it fits within the Episcopal Church’s traditions of prayer and sacrament. There will be plenty of time for discussion, questions, and participants will hopefully walk away with a better understanding of how the church’s theology includes all of God’s children.
Wednesday, February 26th
Ash Wednesday is the first of the forty days of Lent, named for the custom of placing blessed ashes on the foreheads of worshipers at Ash Wednesday services. When we are marked with ashes, we remember our own limitations and brokenness and the healing and love that God offers us. Ash Wednesday services are typically solemn and quiet; there will be readings from Scripture and we will share in ancient prayers. There is the option to receive the mark of ashes in the sign of a cross on your forehead. The priest or lay minister will say “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Service times can be found below.
Sunday, March 1st
The Great Litany at the 10AM Service
The Great Litany is the first liturgical rite written in English at the time of the Reformation. Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII, drew on a wide variety of Latin litanies to compose this English prayer during Henry’s conflicts with Scotland and France in 1544. Changed and adapted over the years for language and context, this form in our Book of Common Prayer is often said or chanted especially on the First Sunday in Lent. Its dramatic language and prayers for God’s mercy and deliverance make a fitting start to our Lenten practices. We will use it at the 10:00 service on March 1.
