St Lukes


From the Bulletin for Sunday, October 27, 2019

The Parish of St. Luke the Physician announces its 2019 Adult Formation and Newcomers’ Program. Starting Wednesday evening October 9, St. Luke’s will offer an 8-week educational opportunity for adults aged 18 and older to learn more about their own spiritual journeys, the basics of Christian faith and history, along with a practical introduction to Holy Scripture, the progressive history and theology of the Episcopal/Anglican traditions, and the richness of our liturgical and musical practice. Whether you are discerning baptism, or confirmation, or are just curious, you are welcome to attend any and all classes. Classes will be held each Wednesday starting at 6:30 p.m. for a light salad/soup supper with fellowship, followed by lecture and discussion at 7 p.m. We try to end each session no later than 8:30 p.m. If you have already confirmed your interest, we will see you next Wednesday. If you have not, please contact the Rector and parish administrator to advise of your interest and availability at your earliest possible convenience. More information is posted in the narthex.

On Sunday, Nov. 3, at 8 am and 10:00 am, we celebrate the Feasts of All Saints and All Souls and we commemorate and pray for the souls of all the departed. During the Eucharist that day we recite the names of those with ties to the St. Luke’s community and neighborhood that have died since last year at this time. We invite you to contact us with the names of any loved ones who have died since November 1, 2018, and to join us at this Holy Feast, as we remember our loved ones who now rest as one with all of the saints, in God. Please call the office and speak to Trish at 626-357-7071, Ext. # 101, or email us the information at the address below.

Faithfully yours,

The Rev. Neil Tadken, Rector
