This Sunday, we will continue

Public Worship and Online Worship beginning at 10:00am.

 

To the People of God at St. Luke's, Katonah:

            During a time of exile our Jewish ancestors wondered “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land.” (Psalm 137:4)  They wondered is it possible to stay connected to God during difficult times and living in a foreign land.

            We certainly live in difficult and strange times as Covid-19 has altered life as we know it.  One of the most difficult aspects of this altered existence for me is the restrictions (although necessary) that are placed upon our worship life.

            I long for a packed house, a full choir, an active Sunday School, and a lively coffee hour.  I look forward to the day that we once again can share the Cup and a handshake without fear.

            However, we can continue to worship and sing the Lord’s song in this strange “land” that we are in.  Facebook live worship will continue at 10:00am on St. Luke’s facebook page as well as on St. Luke’s web page.

            The church is also open for in-person worship with required mask wearing and social distancing.  Last week there were about 16 people in attendance and we can easily handle double that amount – safely!  However, we ask you to stay at home and worship online if you are feeling at all sick.

Blessings:

Fr. Patrick

P.S.      Although our Parish life and worship life is somewhat restricted there are still bills to pay so please don’t forget to keep up your financial support of St. Luke’s.

 

Don’t forget Facebook live worship at 10:00am on Sunday using St. Luke’s Facebook site.  If you are not on Facebook you can follow on St. Luke’s web page.

Women’s Zoom Meeting

There has been some interest in establishing a women’s group via zoom.  This will keep us connected since we are unable to have a Women’s Supper. The thought is that there would be a general interest topic which could develop into general conversation. Zoom meetings would be set up for Thursdays at 6pm. Dates and schedule to follow.

If you are interested in joining this informal women’s group please send your name and email address to Charlou at parish@stlukeskatonah.org 


Web Communications

St. Luke’s is looking for volunteers to keep our social media current and to help post the weekly Facebook live services to St. Luke’s webpage. Individuals high school age and up who would like to help in this effort please contact Carollynn Becker clharris001@optonline.net or Maureen Hattasch mhattasc@optonline.net

 

Concerts:

Something to look forward to:

When the pandemic subsides, Harold will conduct 21 all-Bach concerts spanning two seasons.  Six of them will be held at St. Luke's!  Please stay tuned….
