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.

Who do you know that you might ask? We all patronize various businesses on a regular basis. Most people are more than happy to support good causes.
Do you have a special skill or service you could offer? Perhaps you are the one to get out your boat and take someone on an evening cruise on Horsetooth reservoir. Or prepare a gourmet dinner in your home for the winner and 8 of their closest friends. Be creative.
We all have items we’ve enjoyed but never use, perhaps it’s time to “rehome” them. Just be sure any items you donate are in good shape and worth someone’s bid.
