YOU CAN HELP!
The Vestry recognizes the significant impact that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health issue has had on our community, and especially our parish. The current situation has underscored our obligation to reach out to parishioners in need of assistance, both pastoral and social.
The Vestry would like to establish a one-to-one relationship, consisting of a parishioner in need of assistance and a parishioner able to provide this assistance. This would involve periodic contacts, either in person, by phone, email, or text, to offer assistance with shopping, transportation to a medical appointment, or simply providing an opportunity for conversation.
Please contact the Vestry members below if you know of someone who might welcome our assistance or if you would like to help provide that assistance.
Summer Fair: As you probably know, our 2020 Summer Fair scheduled for July 4th had to be canceled because of the pandemic. Therefore please do not bring any items to the church that would have been put up for sale in Hamptons Housewares or Vintage Clothing as there is no place to store them. If possible, hold on to your items for our next summer fair that will take place on Saturday, July 3, 2021.
A Reminder from our Treasurer—Do you know that you can use your required minimum withdrawal (RMD) from your IRA to make a pledge payment or donation to St. Luke’s? If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a pledge payment or a donation to St. Luke’s directly from your Traditional IRA simply by instructing your plan administrator to send a check made out to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Your QCD may not be taxable income; it will count toward your RMD only if the check is issued by your plan administrator. *Please contact your tax advisor because St. Luke’s doesn’t provide tax advice.

Living Legacy Society For those interested in providing for the welfare and future of our Church, St. Luke’s has a simple bequest program to help you help our Church by designating St. Luke’s a beneficiary in your will, trust or estate with this sample language that may be given to your attorney: “I give, devise and bequeath to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (insert amount, percentage of estate, nature of gift, or remainder of estate) to be used at the discretion of the Rector and the Vestry (or for a designated purpose).” Those who choose to notify the Church that they have done so, will be gratefully recognized for their commitment as members of the Living Legacy Society.
