The Summer Fair is coming: Saturday, July 7
Yes, summer and our annual block-buster family fair are right around the corner! Our fair has been a St. Luke’s tradition for well over a century, and has become a key opportunity for outreach to the community, as well as an important fund-raiser.
The Baccalaureate Service for graduating East Hampton High School Seniors will be held on Monday, June 18 at 7pm at First Presbyterian Church, 120 Main Street, East Hampton.
Wednesday, June 20—6:30pm—East End Chefs features the Old Stove Pub located on Montauk Highway in Wainscott. Chef George will start the dinner with his homemade spinach pie which will be followed with their classic Greek Salad. The main course is sliced steak with mashed potatoes. The dessert is baklava. Seating is limited and you must have a reservation to attend. As our dinner seats have been filling quickly, please make your reservation immediately to prevent disappointment by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org. Donation is $30 at the door and refreshments are available to purchase.
Pianofest: Wednesday, June 27 at 6pm we will be hosting the first Pianofest of the Season for St. Luke’s. Tickets are $20 for adults, free for students 18 and younger and are sold at the door.
How can YOU help with the Fair?
Stay tuned for future announcements on the specifics, but be thinking about how you would like to participate. We will need plenty of volunteers, we need underwriters and sponsors, as well as items for our online and silent auctions, to name a few ways you can help out.

Your commitment to the financial stability of St. Luke’s allows us to not only continue to “live our mission” but also to expand that mission. As the events in our world become more challenging, our work of sharing God’s message of peace and love has become even more important. St. Luke’s means many things to many different parishioners: an oasis of spiritual sustenance, an anchor when we find ourselves adrift in a culture of confusion, and a source of strength where we can be reminded and renewed by the power of God’s love. Think about what St. Luke’s means to you. And in the spirit of thanksgiving, join us in supporting the 2018 campaign by making your stewardship pledge.
St. Luke's Altar Guild, St. Luke's Fellowship Committee, and the Outreach Committee are all looking for new members and event volunteers.

Gerardo are welcome. Checks can be made to St. Thomas Chapel, writing “Discretionary Fund” in the memo line. You can ask Fr. Gerardo for more details at 818-572-7082 or email@example.com

Prayers: Please note, on the first Sunday of each month the sick list will start anew. Please remember to call the office if you need to place someone on the list, AND to remove them when our prayers are no longer needed.
