Welcome to St. Luke’s!

A Note from the Bishop’s Warden

 

We are in a difficult time, and St. Luke’s is now celebrating our Sunday Morning Worship service “Virtually” (Facebook page – St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Lindale, Texas) at our normal worship time of 10:00am.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, different jurisdictions have established procedures to help keep people safe, and curtail, or at a minimum, manage the spread of the virus. The State of Texas has declared a public health disaster and many of our surrounding areas have enacted “shelter at home” or “Stay at Home-Work Safe” procedures. We don’t know how long we will be living with these restrictions, but we do know that we will not be able to gather together for Holy Week.

While Easter is a joyful festival, we keep it now in a time of difficulty and world-wide sorrow. Still, we believe that Christ is with us in his Word, by his Spirit drawing us together as one before God. And we believe that the gospel of Christ gives us strength and comfort in the face of distress and sufferings.  This is a time when many may revisit their faith; St. Luke’s will return to our usual worship schedule as soon as possible, and when we are able, we encourage you to visit with us.

You’ll find our church very welcoming to people of all faiths; our communion is open to any baptized Christian, regardless of your church affiliation. You may be Episcopalian or just curious about the Episcopal Church and want to know more about it? We will welcome you.

In Christ,

Allen G. Temple
