THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

St. Luke’s makes special intercessions each Sunday during the “Prayers of the People.”  If there is someone for whom you would like the congregation to pray, please contact the Church Office by no later than Wednesday morning.  Names, unless otherwise requested, will be left on the Parish Prayerlist (printed in “The Weekly Bulletin”) for four weeks.

E-MAIL PRAYER CHAIN

St. Luke’s has an e-mail prayer group that offers prayer support for anyone about any issue upon request.  You do not have to be a member of the parish community or the e-mail prayer chain team to make a request for prayer.


To make a prayer request or to become a member of the prayer chain team, contact Paul Vanderbosch at paul.vanderbosch@veoliaes.com 

He will be glad to hear from you. 

IF YOU ARE IN THE HOSPITAL

St. Luke’s clergy are available to visit you or your loved one while hospitalized.  Because of federal privacy laws, hospitals are no longer allowed to notify congregations when their members are hospitalized.  For that reason, if you wish to have a clergy person make a hospital visit, it is imperative that someone call the Church Office.  Requests to be included in the Prayers of the People or requests to be included in the parish’s email prayer chain are not presumed with a request for a hospital visit.  Every attempt is made to honor requests for hospital visits within 48 hours of the time of the request.

ST LUKE’S PRAYER

CHAPLAINS

During the distribution of Holy Communion and
after the 10:30 worship service, the St. Luke’s Prayer Chaplains are available to pray for and with you.  They are trained to listen and to be of respectful support.  They do no give advice.  They do not attempt to do counseling.  They listen to your needs and concerns and then pray with you accordingly.  You will find the St. Luke’s Prayer Chaplains at the prayer station.  The prayer station is located in the back of the sanctuary.

THE ST. LUKE’S COMMUNITY

CARING TEAM

Occasionally, either due to a death in the family, or a debilitating illness, or some other crisis, members of our parish community need practical support.  Such support may come in the form of meals, transportation to doctor appointments, help around the house, or simply caring visits.  To respond to the crisis needs of individuals and families within the St. Luke’s parish community, the Community Caring Team was formed.  It is composed of approximately twenty individuals who are willing to make themselves available to be of help and comfort. 


If you or your family are in need of extra support in a time of difficulty, please contact Fr. Charles at 649-4900 Ext. 11 and ask for the help and support of the St. Luke’s Community Caring Team.
