Centering Prayer from Home on Friday, June 12
St. Luke’s Centering Prayer Group continues to meet “ in spirit ” on the second and fourth Fridays of the month. Members gather for approximately 30 minutes of communal silence in the comfort of their homes, at our usual 9 a.m. start time. Participants receive an email ahead of time with a short piece of soft opening music, a closing prayer, and a schedule for that morning’s “sit”. Our next prayer circle meets on Friday, June 12.  Please note: the Centering Prayer group will take a summer recess during July and August.
A "Thank You" from Deacon Keehna!
A huge thank you to all parishioners who expressed their congratulations, good wishes and prayers as I was ordained on May 23rd! I’m still pinching myself to make sure it’s not a dream! Until I can be in touch with each of you individually, please allow this “group thank you” to suffice. Your outpouring of love has overwhelmed me. In God’s grace and peace, and with gratitude, Keehna
Our Daily Bread, (June, July, August) and Forward Day by Day, (May, June, July)
are available at the Front Entrance of the St. Luke's

Food Pantry is open every Friday, 9am to Noon
Pass the word!!!

Thank you St. Luke's parishioners for your continued support of the Food Pantry, both in requested grocery items and through your financial support.
Your generosity has been heartwarming!

Here is a little update to keep you informed of what is going on.

This week we supplied food to 50 individuals. We extend great gratitude for your kind hearts.

Attached is a “Much Needed List of Food Items”. These needed items will greatly assist the Food Pantry
in offering complete meals made from different combinations of all the items.
List of Most Needed Food Items
Immediate needs include
Rice (both), Tomato Sauce, Chef Boyardee (variety), Jelly, Canned Corn

If so inclined you are welcome to pick up a few of these items while out shopping for yourselves and
bring your food items to the church on any Thursday between 1:00 and 3:00pm  
For those who are not shopping but would like to give a monetary donation,
you can mail your check to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, with “Food Pantry” written in the memo section. These funds will be placed in a separate account for the Food Pantry and used as needed. 
A third opportunity is to keep the Food Pantry clients and each other in your prayers
for peace and well-being.

Father Pierre-Henry does remind everyone that St. Luke’s remains under complete lock down at this time.  Please  do not  bring items on any other day or time than what is listed above, as no one will be available to bring them inside .

Please continue to pray for the needs of our community; for those experiencing food insufficiency, for those seeking medical assistance, and for those needing housing.  
Stay safe and take good care of yourselves and each other.  St. Luke's Food Pantry

MEDIA RELEASE
A word to the Church from
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry:

“Our long-term commitment to racial justice and reconciliation is embedded in our identity as baptized followers of Jesus. We will still be doing it when the news cameras are long gone.” 
 
In the midst of COVID-19 and the pressure cooker of a society in turmoil, a Minnesota man named George Floyd was brutally killed. His basic human dignity was stripped by someone charged to protect our common humanity. 
Many of you have asked "how can I support St. Luke's
during this difficult time?"
The first thing we can all do is keep each other in our thoughts and prayer.
The second is to check on each other through phone calls, emails, text messages, etc.
Thirdly, at this time we need your financial support.
Pledges and plate offerings can be kept up to date by online giving click here for a one time or recurring donation.
You can also mail your offering, or if you just need to get out of the house,
go for a ride to St. Luke's and place your offering in the secured locked mailbox outside our parish office.
Thank you so much for supporting St. Luke's in this difficult time.
