St. Luke's Church will be closed to public worship and all other group gatherings throughout the duration of the novel Coronavirus pandemic. This step has been directed by our Episcopal Diocese of Newark in consultation with our local, state and national public health officials.


We are particularly concerned with the wellbeing of those at high risk – those people over 60 and/or those with underlying medical conditions. Please check in with your friends and neighbors and hold all those who are vulnerable in prayer.

May 24, 2020  - THE SEVENTH  SUNDAY OF EASTER


O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

-- Collect for the Seventh Sunday of Easter (The Sunday after the Ascension),

The Invitation to Holy Communion
A spiritual communion is a personal devotional that anyone can
pray at any time to express their desire to receive Holy Communion
at that moment, but in which circumstances impede them from
actually receiving Holy Communion.
 
My Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the
Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I love you above all
things, and long for you in my soul. Since I cannot now
receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually
into my heart. As though you have already come, I
embrace you and unite myself entirely to you; never
permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
(St. Alphonsus de Liguori, 1696-1787)


 

 

Although we cannot worship together publicly during this pandemic, we can still hold each other in prayer, as well as our family and friends, and especially all those across the country and around the world affected by the spread of the Coronavirus.

 



A PRAYER FOR  HEALING


The Almighty Lord, who is a strong tower to all who put their trust in him,
to whom all things in heaven, on earth, and under the earth bow and obey:

Be now and evermore your defense, and make you know and feel that
the only Name under heaven  given for health and salvation is
the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (The Book of Common Prayer, 1979)




Join us on the Third Sunday of the month for a quiet Healing Service.


The service takes place in the Chapel following the main Sunday service.


There are no in-person service at St. Luke's at this time. HOWEVER...

We are leaving this notice in place even during the Coronavirus Quarantine times in hopes that we will be able to return to it when it is safe to do so.
