2019 Mite Box Recipients

Pick up your mite box on Sundays during Lent. Thank you! St. Luke’s members of all ages have an opportunity to make an impact in the lives of four precious children. This Lent, the parish at St. Luke’s will again be making and filling mite boxes. A mite box is a cardboard “bank” of sorts in which we will save spare change or dollars throughout Lent. On Easter Sunday, the mite boxes will be collected, with all donations going to the children below. Anything we can give will make a difference. Thank you for participating! Kamryn Merritt is 11 years old and lives in Prairieville. In July 2017 she was hiking in Colorado with her twin sister, slipped off the side of a mountain, and fell 70 feet.

Looking for Class of 2019

We're getting an early start on rounding up kiddos to honor at Graduation Sunday. Each year during the month of May, we celebrate our youth graduating from high school during a morning worship service. If you have a graduating high school senior, please contact our Youth Director, Julia Golding, by April 22:

March 10: Lenten Evensong

The St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Parish Choir will lead an Evensong at 5:30 pm on Sunday, March 10, the first Sunday of Lent. The service will include hymns, scripture readings, prayers, responses and a performance of the beloved Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) ranks among the most influential French composers, linking the end of nineteenth-century Romanticism with the beginnings of twentieth-century music. His Requiem and Pavane rank among the most popular in ongoing lists of serious and religious music. Fauré began composing the Requiem in 1887, revised and expanded it over the years, and produced a final version in 1901. This version of the work lasts about 35 minutes

Blessing Bags

Until February 16, we're collecting items to pack up as blessing bags for the homeless. Suggested donations are gallon Ziploc bags, travel size toiletries and baby wipes, individually-wrapped snacks, chewing gum, hand warmers, hats and gloves, new socks, and bottled water (16oz size). February 16: Join us in Witter Hall to assemble the bags from 10 am until noon. February 17: All are invited to hit the streets with us to distribute blessings bags after the 11:10 am service. Blessing bags to-go will also be available to grab on your way out of church. Keep them in your car and pass them to a homeless person as you go about your week. Questions? Contact Lisa Lee at
