PAULI MURRAY SERVICE JULY 1
This year’s Pauli Murray Service will be offered virtually at 7pm on Wednesday, July 1st. You can access from the Facebook Pages of St. Titus, the Diocese of North Carolina, and the Pauli Murray Project.
JULY BOOK STUDY: UPROOTING RACISM
We encourage you to read the book “Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice” by Paul Kivel and then join a discussion group by Zoom on Monday, July 27 from 7:00-8:30. The book is available using Durham Library’s Hoopla app, or by using your Nook, Kindle or free Kindle app.
After each chapter, answer: 1) What did I learn/what was new to me? 2) What do I want to know, 3) How am I feeling about what I read? Contact Eileen Morgan for more information, and to let her know you plan to read/attend.
DIOCESAN CONVENTION NOMINEES
If you are interested in being a 3-year delegate to Diocesan Convention, please contact Senior Warden Eileen Morgan by July 1st. Vestry will vote at the July meeting, with the highest votes becoming our 3-year delegate and the three next highest votes becoming this year’s alternates.
The delegate needs to be able to attend Diocesan Convention all day on Fri, Nov 20 and Sat, Nov 21. This year’s convention may be virtual or may be held in Winston-Salem. Our current delegates are Phillip Bass and Bobbie Hendrix.
UPDATED PARISH WEBSITE
St. Luke’s continues to plan for moving our website to a new platform around July 1st. There will be some changes, but we hope that it will be both easier to navigate as well as easier to keep current.
HOW CAN I HELP?
GOOD NEWS COMMUNITY GARDEN

Ability to take notes quickly, comfort with Word, Google Docs and Zoom required.

KEEP CLERGY IN THE LOOP
