The Holylands Arts & Summer at St. Luke’s

St. Luke’s bbq

St. Luke’s recently kicked off the summer with our new combined 10AM service, annual bbq (thank you to Dave and Chris who pulled hotdog and pulled pork duties) and a visit from Bishop Wayne Smith. The vestry hosted a breakfast and discussion with Bishop Smith.

This year, we also had the pleasure of shopping for some beautiful Olive-wood handcrafts from The Holylands Arts, an organization which supports more than 500 Christian families in the Bethlehem and Jerusalem areas. A big “thank you” to Raad and Sandy from The Holylands for sharing these gifts and bringing the story of these struggling families to St. Luke’s. More information about the Holylands Arts’ mission, along with items available for purchase can be found at their website at

Now that summer is officially underway, please note St. Luke’s summer office hours: Mon-Wed, Fri 8:30am-12:30pm.

Have a safe and fun summer!
