Father Gerardo's Hispanic ministry on the east end is now blessed to be able to worship in the former Grace Episcopal Church located at 573 Roanoke Avenue in Riverhead. There will be a special Christmas celebration there on Saturday December 14th from 4 to 6 pm for the families of the congregation and their 78 children. Please contact Judith Lanier at judithlanier1@gmail.com or telephone at 631-537-2089 if you can help with Christmas gifts for the 78 children who will be attending.


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.


Bible Study takes place on Wednesdays after the 10 AM service.  If you are unable to attend you always can participate by dialing in to our class. Call telephone # 1-857-232-0156, and add code # 469657, when prompted. To listen to the class, go to the website and listen to a recording of the session at your leisure. To listen to previous Bible study classes that have been recorded, please CLICK HERE.


Volunteers are needed to help deliver Brown Bag lunches to the East Hampton Railroad Station on Wednesday mornings to meet the bus arriving at 8:30am. Call Holly Whitmore, 631-267-7852.


East Hampton Food Pantry—Now is a chance to show our thankfulness to God in our generosity towards others for the Thanksgiving season! Please focus your donations on food for the Holiday—sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, carrots, beans, dinner rolls—any and all veggies and trimmings you can think of. Frozen chickens or turkeys can be dropped off directly to the food pantry Mondays through Thursdays. You can leave everything else in the bin in our hallway on Sunday, or drop them off at the office during the week. 


Name Tags are in and available in Hoie Hall. 

 

Please be sure to pick up your 2019 Parish Directories. 


A Special Appeal: Quarters for Laundry Love are running low. Please save up your quarters and bring them to the April 14th Palm Sunday Coffee Hour hosted by Tina Giles, St. Luke’s Laundry Love coordinator. Let’s make this a tremendous outpouring of love and care to our EH Community!


FACE IT: It’s a lot easier to remember people’s names if you have an image of what they look like. That’s why we are asking all parishioners to submit a digital photo of themselves to Tara Brinka at tower18@stlukeseasthampton.org for the 2020 Directory. Another option is to give a favorite photo to us — and we will scan and return it. Thirdly, if you do not have a flattering portrait, see Lys Marigold (10 o’clocker) or email: LAMarigold@aol.com who will iphoto you until you are pleased.

 

St. Luke’s is forming a Young Adults ministry group! If you would like to be involved, or just be placed on the email list, please contact Caroline Udelhofen at caroline.m.udelhofen@gmail.com.
