One of the jewels in St. Luke's treasure is the magnificent and much-loved Phelps Organ. Purposely built for St. Luke's in 1974 it has been a huge presence here, both physically and musically, being used over the years for both services, recitals and concerts.
Sadly, our beloved organ has aged over the years and is in need of repair. To help facilitate those repairs, St. Luke's will be hosting a silent auction in August to raise money for the organ. Co-Ordinator Marcia Piermattei is looking for donations for the auction. For a list of suggested Silent Auction items CLICK HERE
