A Warm Welcome to Easter Worship

The clergy and people of St. Luke’s welcome you with joy and happiness to this celebration of Christ’s Resurrection!

We are delighted that you are here to worship with us!  We hope that visitors and guests will consider joining us for worship, mission and ministry on a regular basis.  

Each Sunday we have services with Holy Eucharist at 7:30 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. 

Today childcare for children 3 and under will be available during the 9:00 and 11:00 am services.

Join us for our annual Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30 A.M. in the Bishop’s Garden. If you need help finding the Bishop’s garden, please ask an usher who will be happy to assist you.

On this glorious day our altars are lovingly cared for by our altar and flower guilds, with worship led by our choir, vergers, acolytes, readers and many other volunteers. We thank all of our contributing ministries who have dedicated themselves to enhancing our worship during Holy Week and this Easter Day.

Deepest thanks are given to all parishioners, communities members, and guests, who generously donated to support our flower guild and musicians during this Easter season.

All this is done to enhance your Easter celebration and is dedicated to the glory of the Risen Christ. 

Please join us in the tradition of joyfully ringing bells every time “Alleluia” is said.
