In Response to the Shooting in Charleston
For hundreds of years the church has come together to pray The Great Litany in times of war, national anxiety, and disaster. (BCP pages 148-155)
St. Luke's will offer The Great Litany at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, June 24th--one week after the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC. At 8:15, prior to celebration of the Litany, a panel of Episcopalians Organizing Against Racism (EOAR) from multiple parishes will help us to put the massacre in Charleston into perspective.

8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This service makes room for all too elusive quiet time. While there is no music, the sound of peacefulness fills the service and the congregation as early morning light shines through our east facing windows.
10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II (10:00 a.m. in the summer: May 24, 2015 - September 6, 2015)
In this service we love making a joyful noise unto the Lord! Led by our Senior Choir, congregational singing is in the round since the altar is in the center of the worship space. Following communion, the laying on of hands for healing and personal intercessory prayer are available in one of the side chapels.
