Sunday Services & Announcements

Welcome Visitors: We are glad you are joining us today. Please sign our register and give us your email address so we can contact you. Greeters at the door are available to answer any questions you might have about the Cathedral.

Childcare: Our Sunday school and nursery are both open today. Sunday school begins in the upper hall at 9:45, with children returning to their families at the sharing of the Peace. The nursery is open every Sunday from 9:45-11:30. Families are always welcome!

St. Luke's Cathedral Choir: Each week we are blessed with the gift of music from the St. Luke's Cathedral Choir under the direction of our Canon for Liturgy and Music, Christian M. Clough. If you are interested in singing with our choir in future services, please contact Christian for details.

Reintroduction of the Common Communion Cup: Today, barring another coronavirus outbreak, St. Luke’s Cathedral plans to begin offering the common cup again at Communion. We ask that you follow a few guidelines if you wish to drink from the cup:

1)We understand that not everyone is comfortable sharing the cup; please feel free to refuse. You may walk away from the communion rail after receiving the host or cross your arms across your chest if you do not want to share the cup at this time.

2)You may not “dip” (intict) your host as this practice is actually more likely than drinking from the cup to spread germs to other parishioners. For this reason, our clergy and Eucharistic ministers will be instructed to refuse to allow anyone to intinct.

3)If you are not feeling well or if you are recovering from an illness that may be contagious to others please do not drink from the common communion cup.

4) If the CDC declares Cumberland County to be in the yellow or red Covid transmission zones, we will suspend the use of the cup until we return to the green zone.

Questions? Contact the Rev. Dr. Suzanne Roberts.

The Old Testament Roots of Jesus Study: What are the methods God uses to talk with us? What methods does God prefer? Who are God’s messengers? What languages does God use or speak? What are God’s utterances called? Join us on Sunday mornings at 8:30-9:30 in the Chapter Room to discover what God’s ancient and current ways are of allowing us to hear. For more information, call The Rev. Dr. Bob Hanson at 207-405-8250.

A Christian Life of Faith: Signs and Thresholds Along the Way: So much of what we do at St. Luke’s is designed to help others. What about nurturing and exploring our own spiritual lives? What about our questions and struggles of faith, our relationship (or not) with God? Dean Shambaugh is leading a Sunday morning class called “A Christian Life of Faith: Signs and Thresholds Along The Way.” Join us at 9 am in the Chapter Room. All are welcome
