Men's Retreat, November 1 - 3
The 2019 Men of St. Luke's On The Lake (MOSL) Annual Retreat will be held at John Knox Ranch near Wimberley and is less than 48 country miles from Saint Luke’s!
To encourage attendance, MOSL leadership has arranged a greatly reduced cost at a closer venue. Expect the comradery with other men and to hear inspiring wisdom presented by Father Justin and Father Andrew including the opportunity to visit with them while away from the “rest of their flock”. This retreat will also provide more fun things to do and fellowship opportunities beyond what has been experienced at past men’s retreats. We highly encourage first time attendees and we look forward to building even stronger St. Luke’s relationships!

Scholarships may be available, or reduced rates for partial attendance. If you have any questions please contact Steve Hinz  here .

Transforming Questions
Transforming Questions is a way to discuss hard questions in a relaxed, safe setting. Questions like: Can we question our faith? Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus have to die? What do we have to do?
How should I read the Bible? Does God answer prayer? Why do bad things happen? Where do
we go when we die? Why do I need church? Where do we go from here? Where does the
Episcopal Church come from? What do I have to believe to be an Episcopalian?
This course is great for those new to St. Luke's and/or their faith journey.

Led by Barbara Frazell on Sundays, from 10:15 - 11:10 AM starting in late September/early October.
Interested? Please contact Barbara Frazell here to register.
Pick up a flyer like this from an usher this Sunday to post or give away!
