Update on Durham Episcopal Resettlement Coalition (DERC)
Many of you heard the wonderful news last Sunday that Hope Galunas has found us a 2 bedroom apartment that will come open in mid-January. Finally, some reality setting in! We have a wonderful team of front line workers from the three churches, led by Bob and Mary Etta King, ready to work with a family as soon as they are assigned to us. Right now, we are turning to collecting household items, and looking for volunteer help moving, cleaning the apartment, setting up the kitchen and buying the first lot of groceries. There is a sign up genius where we are gathering furnishings: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F094EA5A82BAAFF2-household. If you can volunteer to help, please contact either Joan Hodges, Jim or Babs Wise .
This has been a wonderful time for those of us working on the project to get to know fellow Episcopalians at St. Joe’s and St. Titus. A newer development is that St. Stephen’s wants to join in and are working on their funding. So, we may be looking at a second home soon. St. Phillips is also setting up a home, and will be joining us to share lessons learned. We hope soon to be able to physically actually meet all – once the Omicron surge has lessened.
Thank you for your all your gifts: both goods, time, money, and prayer, we truly have felt the support of our parish in this effort.
Welcome Interim Rector
We announced via email on Saturday 12/11/21 and in worship on Sunday 12/12/21 that the Vestry has called the Rev. Rhonda Lee as our Interim Rector effective January 1, 2022. She will lead our worship on Sunday, January 2nd (which is the 2nd Sunday of Christmas). Please join us in person or online that day to welcome Rhonda Lee as our Interim Rector and to celebrate a New Year together at St. Luke’s. (Rhonda’s greeting letter is posted on our Facebook page if you missed the email.)
