Holy Week Worship Schedule – 2019

Join us for worship during Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter and the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ. This year, we are excited to join our worship partners from Church of the Good Shepherd to offer joint worship services, including Maundy Thursday at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church,where the washing of the feet occurs, as well as Holy Saturday Easter Vigil hosted by Church of the Good Shepherd. Each location will host its own Good Friday service, as well as Easter Sunday service.

Additionally, St. Luke’s will host its annual free Easter Egg hunt for children of all ages. This event concludes a season long period of reflection and preparation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The parish partnership of St. Luke’s Church and Church of the Good Shepherd is pleased to welcome The Rev. Dr. Pamela Stuerke as our new part time clergy associate.  Pamela will be replacing Maria Evans who is concluding her time of service with us.  Maria’s last Sunday is Feb. 24th at St. Luke’s and March 3rd at Church of the Good Shepherd.  Pamela will be working with Father Earl and Rev. Maria over the next four Sundays, and will take her place in the clergy rotation between the two parishes, beginning March 10th.  Pamela is a transitional deacon, ordained this past December.  She is slated to be ordained to the priesthood in June.  As a transitional deacon, Pamela is not yet able to serve as Celebrant at the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Therefore, during the time between March and June, before her ordination to the priesthood, supply priests will be present with Pamela on Sundays.  She will preach and the supply priest will celebrate the Eucharist.  “Welcome, Pamela!”

“Hello, dear people of Good Shepherd and St. Luke’s. 

I’ll be joining you in ministry on a part-time basis, initially as a transitional deacon, and as a priest after ordination this summer.  I’ll also be continuing in my role as an accounting professor at UMSL.  Last August, I completed the Theological Formation Program in the Episcopal School for Ministry, and St. Mark’s in St. Louis Hills is the parish that has sponsored me for ordination.

I’m looking forward to meeting you over the next several weeks, and to getting to know you.”
