We Love St. Luke’s II

This week, we would like to introduce you to June, a long time member and avid supporter of our church. June will share her insight on what it means to be part of our faith community by answering just 4 simple questions…

St Luke’s is a family  that nourishes its members but also reaches out, as much as we are able, to feed and aid those to come to us for help

St Luke’s: So, June, how long have you attended St. Luke’s?

June: I first attended St. Luke’s when I moved to Hudson in 1983 … now thirty-six years ago. Being a “cradle” Episcopalian (baptized as an infant and brought up in the Church), it was natural for me to seek out the Episcopal church in my community. Back in 2004, I was able to become an active volunteer, serving on the Vestry and the Altar Guild and helping to coordinate our community suppers ever since …fifteen years of varied ministries.

St Luke’s: What makes St Luke’s such a special place for you?

June: St. Luke’s is special, first of all, because it is an Episcopal church in the Diocese of Massachusetts, a progressive presence in the national church, demonstrating leadership in social justice issues. I am very proud of this “brand” … our Church is a community where diversity is welcomed and celebrated and provides a worship space that honors tradition, reason and scripture. We are a catholic community … our liturgical roots go back to the early Christian church … and that is special indeed … Allowing for a continuity that centers us in Christ and not the Church as an institution. St. Luke’s is a family that nourishes its members but also reaches out, as much as we are able, to feed and aid those who come to us for help.

St Luke’s: What do you wish more people know about St Luke’s?

June: I wish people knew that we need their presence .. perhaps not on a regular or permanent basis, as that is an unrealistic commitment for many… but that their presence, as often as they are able to share it at worship or at our activities, is necessary for us to survive.

St Luke’s: What word woud you use to describe St Luke’s?

June: I would offer two words that describe St.. Luke’s at present … hopeful but struggling. 

St Luke’s: If you could choose just one word to describe St Luke’s, what would it be?

June: I would offer two words that describe St.. Luke’s at present … hopeful but struggling.
