VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)
ESCUELA DE VERANO
We’ve turned a corner at SL2 in doing our VBS.
My first years we were always short of money
and during summer time looked bad. Now we
have funding. Your generosity has made that happen!
The challenges we face being multiple cultures, languages and economic classes, are all superseded by
VBS. Volunteers show up to pitch in from the 1:00 pm
service, and kids are mixed not only from services but
from inside and outside the church. The result is a
wonderful, textured and diverse salad of people.
Thanks to Ebie Mountford and her crew of supporters, Sue Henry, Patty Hale, Lee Wilson, Susan Cole,
Claudia Roseberry and others who come and go, the
event is well attended and lots of fun.
VBS is a model for
unifying events for
the adults, too.
Latinos who are
shy about their
English can help
and share in the
work around VBS.
They might avoid
the planning for
reasons of language, but they
seem to just show
up anyway. This
year we will have
Fr. Eliacin with us,
and his three kids!
Ricci might even
crash the party (his
wife). I am very hopeful for a stellar year.
Hemos dado un paso adelante en la Escuela de
Verano. Mis primeros años siempre faltaba dinero y en el verano era peor. Ahora tenemos fondos. La generosidad de ustedes todos lo hizo. Los retos que enfrentamos siendo de múltiples culturas, lenguas y clases económicas fueron superados por la Escuela de Verano. Voluntarios de la misa de a la una se
juntaron para ayudar, y los niños no solamente vienen
de la iglesia sino también de afuera. El resultado es
una ensalada con textura y maravillosa. Gracias a Ebie
Mountford y sus ayudantes: Sue Henry, Patty Hale,
Lee Wilson, Susan Cole, Claudia Roseberry y otros
que vienen y van, el evento fue bien atendido con mucha diversión.
La Escuela de
Verano es un modelo para eventos
que nos unen.
Latinos que eran
tímidos de su
inglés pueden
compartir el trabajo de la escuela. Tal vez se ausenten de la planificación por
razones de lengua, pero sin embargo se presentan para ayudar.
Este año tendremos a P. Eliacin y
sus tres hijos. Ricci tal vez venga (su esposa). Estoy
esperando un año estelar.

FORMACIÓN CRISTIANA
PARA ADULTOS
En principios de junio P. Jaime y yo fuimos a la Universidad Luterana del Pacífico para una conferencia
sobre formación espiritual de adultos. Pasamos tres
día intensivas aprendiendo con otros cleros y laicos –
Episcopales, Luteranos y Metodistas – sobre la diferencia entre educación espiritual y formación espiritual, y como fortalecer los dos en nuestra parroquia.
Entre los muchos temas que recibimos, nos dimos
cuenta que la formación espiritual ya está ocurriendo
en SL2 por numerosos ministerios. Hemos vuelto con
nuevas ideas y energía renovada para expandir las
ofertas para adultos en nuestra iglesia. Nuestras
ideas requieren una colaboración de muchos, entonces sé alerto a una encuesta sobre formación de adultos en su correo electrónico. La encuesta nos ayudará
mejorar y entender mejor que tipos de cosas les interesa aprender, cómo les interesa aprender, y que
son sus ideas sobre programas en el futuro. Uno de
mis programas favoritos para la formación y educación de mayores es Educación para Ministerio, que
vamos a emprender en el otoño. En este grupo los
participantes discutirán lecciones de las Sagradas Escrituras y la historia, teología y liturgia
dentro en una reflexión teológica por un
facilitador entrenado. Venga a hablarme
para más información.

REPORTE DEL GUARDIÁN MAYOR
“… de verdad les digo, lo que hacen para uno de estos más pequeños de mis hermanas y hermanos
míos, a mi me lo han hecho.” San Mateo 25:40
El Comité de Outreach de San Lucas – St. Luke’s provee muchos programas para servir los necesitados en
nuestra comunidad. Este mes quiero enfatizar el servicio proveído a los hambrientos y desamparados.
San Lucas ha ayudado a individuos y familias en
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
Vancouver con comida por muchos años, pero ahora
está evolucionando y expandiendo. Hoy en día un
grupo de voluntarios distribuye lonches de tortas,
pan dulce, ropa, higiénicos, y unos pocos boletos del
autobús. Otros se reúnen los miércoles para amarrar
bolsas de comida, y unos más llegan conforme un
horario flexible para lavar, surtir y doblar ropa.
Mucho es donado de feligreses, pero el pan dulce, la
ropa interior y ropa de niños son de algunas compañías en el área. Se amarrar 50-60 bolsas de lonche, 10
bolsas de comida para individuos, y 10 bolsas para
familias cada semana. No se tira nada.
Donaciones siempre son necesarios. Durante el
verano visores, gorros de béisbol, ropa para tiempos
de calor son muy escasos. Se buscan pantalones de
hombres de 32-38 pulgadas. Considere por favor
donaciones de estos tipos. Champú pequeño, jabón,
y loción también. Si usted o un conocido está pasando tiempo en un hotel, puede recoger estos y donarlos. Se buscan más voluntarios también.

¿POR QUÉ DAMOS?
Ha sido interesante escuchar la razón porque miembros de la Iglesia dan para apoyar la iglesia y la comunidad. Aquí hay algunos comentarios más de los
miembros de la junta parroquial a mi pregunta ¿por
qué das a la iglesia?
De Rick Romagosa: Somos afortunados de tener una
comunidad tan linda en San Lucas ~ St Luke’s. Se
siente simplemente justo apoyarla y su ministerio.
De Kathy Gallaher: Doy porque amo a mi iglesia y
quiero dar honra por las bendiciones que he recibido
en mi vida. Amo la liturgia, la música, los niños – y
todo programa requiere dinero.
Gratitud, honor, amar, un sentido de responsabilidad, el deseo de ver continuar un trabajo buen, y de
crecer – esas son las razones que nuestros miembros
comparten su bendición financiera con la iglesia.
Nuestra generosidad colectiva es lo que mantiene los
programas, lo que hace posible ser una parte esencial
de nuestra comunidad y las vidas que servimos. Si
no eres parte del ministerio de apoyo de finanzas,
por favor, considere los ahorma mismo.
Ninguna cantidad es demasiado pequeño y la hora para comenzar es ahora.

SENIOR WARDEN’S REPORT
“…truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of
these brothers and sisters of mine you did for me.”
-Mathew 25:40
The St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas Outreach Committee provides many programs to serve the needy in our community. This month I want to highlight the service
we provide for homeless and hungry people. St.
Luke’s has been helping needy individuals and families in Vancouver with food for many years, but the
mission has recently expanded and is evolving.
Today a group of volunteers handed out sandwich
lunches, bagels and pastries, clothing, hygiene kits
and a few bus passes each Tuesday through Friday.
Other volunteers make up food bags every Wednesday, still others wash, sort and fold donated clothing
for the clothes closet. Most of the items donated come
from parishioners, but pastries, underwear, and some
children’s clothing are donated by local businesses.
Volunteers make 50-60 sandwiches and prepare at
least 10 single, and 10 family food bags per week.
Very little is wasted.
Donations are always needed. During the summer,
baseball caps and visors and men’s casual summer
clothing are in great demand, and the clothes closet is
very short of these items, especially men’s pants with
32-38 inch waists. Please consider donating these
items if you have them. Travel sized shampoo, conditioner, soap and/or lotion are also needed. If you or a
relative is staying in a hotel this summer you may be
able to collect some of these items to donate. More
volunteers are also always welcome!

WHY DO WE GIVE?
It has been interesting to hear why members of our
church give to support our church and community.
Here are few more comments from members of the
vestry in response to my question ‘Why do you give
money to the church?’
From Ric Romagosa: We are fortunate to have such a
wonderful community at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas. It
just feels right to support it and its ministries.
From Kathy Gallaher: I give because I love my
church community and want to honor the blessings
that I have received in my life. I love the liturgy, the
music, the children—and it takes money to keep
those programs going.
Gratitude, honor, love, a sense of responsibility, a desire to see a good work continue to grow—these are
the reasons why our members share their financial
blessings with the church.
Our collective generosity is what keeps our programs
running, and what enables us to be a vital part of our
community and the lives of those we serve. If you are
not a part of the ministry of giving
financial support to the church, please
consider starting now. No amount is too
small and the time to start is now.

ADULT FORMATION
Early in June, I went with Father Jaime to Pacific Lutheran University for a conference on adult spiritual
formation. We spent three intense days learning
with other clergy and laypersons--Episcopalians,
Lutherans and Methodists-- about the difference between spiritual education and spiritual formation,
and how to foster the growth of both in our home
parishes. Among the many take-always that we received is the reassurance that spiritual formation is
already occurring here at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas
through a number of ongoing ministries, and we
brought home with us some new ideas and renewed
energy for expanding our parish’s offerings of adult
education and formation. Our ideas require a collaborative approach, so be on the lookout for a survey on adult spiritual education and formation to
arrive via email. This will help our education team
better understand what sorts of things you are interested in learning, how you like to learn, and what
your ideas are for future programs. One of my favorite programs of adult spiritual education and formation, Education for Ministry (EfM), is set to begin
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
in the Fall. In EfM a group of participants will discuss readings on our Holy Scriptures as well as
church history and theology, worship
together, and engage in Theological Reflection, all guided by a trained mentor. Come
and find me for more information.

NOTES FROM THE MUSIC ROOM
Summer allows us all to relax a bit and recharge our
liturgical batteries at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas. A volunteer Sunday morning choir, open to all, meets occasionally half an hour before the 10 AM service to
provide a little special music and our home-grown
guitarists have a chance to sharpen their skills.
Jazz Vespers will continue
with our perennial favorite
Mike Horsfall at the piano
and vibraphone on August
1st, with music starting that
Saturday at 6:30 PM, a little
later than usual. Correct your
calendar entry with that
slight time change and bring
family, friends and neighbors
for an ecumenical service of
prayer, praise, and pulse led
by a long-standing member
of the Oregon Jazz Hall of Fame. Drummer Nick
Saume will join us again, who not only played for
Jimi Hendrix and recorded as a cover for Ringo
Starr, but also toured with Harry Belafonte.
Nancy and I will spend nearly a month in France,
July 21st through August 18th. We will play three
concerts on three successive Sundays in three different towns on three completely different pipe organs,
culminating in a concert at the Cathedral in Orleans
on August 9th. We’ll also fit in a little R&R. I’m very
grateful to the parish and to the vestry
in particular for supporting me and
allowing for some professional time
away.
Tim Nickel, Director of Music
ORGAN RECITAL
Nancy and I would like to invite you to a free organ
recital of music on Saturday evening, July 11th at 7:30
PM here at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas. We will share
with you the music we will be playing in France
during our trip in July and early August. There will

process was conducted by voting twice. First separated into congressional districts and then individually. The 5 priorities were all humanity driven including managing homelessness/poverty, equalizing
education & healthcare and increasing the minimum
wage. Also a priority is human trafficking. Other
issues put on the table were gun control, immigration and ending the death penalty.

San Lucas Mother’s Day Shower for Babies In Need.
Thank you for the sweaters, hats, pajamas, gowns,
blankets, burp clothes, diapers, and lovely extras for
the little ones. Your cash donations totaled $795.00!
That is so needed and will purchase many car seats.
I wish you could see the big smiles and tears of joy
when our moms receive your gifts. You are truly
God’s hands and feet in our community.
Thank you also, for continuing to print Walk into

ANNUAL SPRING SUMMIT!
On May 31st Father Jaime, Lee Wilson and I attended the Annual Spring Summit of the Faith Action
Network. Held at Vancouver Heights United Methodist Church this multi-denominational gathering
was to help guide legislative action for the upcom-
There are exciting ESL things happening. If you are
interested in teaching, assisting or helping care for
the children of our students, please contact me.
There are only 16 classes for summer session and no
one is expected to make all of them. Here are the 4
basics:

Child care for those 4 and younger will be provided by paid staff- Jess Wilson.

Several who helped with spring ESL class have
been meeting to discuss the textbook we have read
(about how to teach ESL) and to see what simple resources we can pull together for anyone who wants
some help. We want to make it easy to volunteer and
make it successful program for all. No experience is
needed to be helpful as ESL teacher

The 16 summer classes will be held in July and
August on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:308pm, beginning Tuesday, July 7 and continuing
through Thursday, August 27.

Lastly, there is a possibility that part of these
classes (maybe 30 minutes of the 3 hours of class
each week) will be a reversed- English speakers will
get help from Spanish students to develop/improve
upon their Spanish fluency. This idea is not fully
flushed out yet.
The ESL team looks forward to hearing from you

ALS WALK – OCTOBER 3, 2015
This is our 7th year in the WALK TO DEFEAT ALS.
As always, we will be walking in loving memory of
Father Eric Werts. This 5K walk helps us raise funds
for research, support of families, awareness and
most importantly finding a CURE.
The ALS Association and the community of St
Luke’s ~ San Lucas were so good to us and helped
make Eric’s journey so much easier. I hope you will
consider supporting our walk team FOR THE LOVE
OF ERIC again this year with a donation as we
WALK TO DEFEAT ALS. You may make an online
donation via our website: http://webor.alsa.org/goto/
ruth_werts or you may send me a check made out to
“ALS Association”.
We would love to have you join us for the walk on
Saturday, October 3rd. If you can join us, please let
me know. (If you walked last year and still have
your red bandana, please wear it again as our team
symbol.) If you or anyone else would like more

PEACE & JUSTICE FAIR
The 12th annual Peace and Justice Fair will be
Saturday, September 12 at Esther Short Park. St
Luke's ~ San Lucas has exhibited for several years.
Being at the Fair is the most visible parish presence
in the community outside our campus. Please commit to helping this large and unique once-per-year
event. Help is needed to plan the exhibit in advance,
then on Fair day to load the truck at church, unload
and set up in the Park, welcome visitors to the exhibit from 9AM-4PM, take down, load the truck,
and unload back on campus. Many helpers means
nobody must do all that work. Also, if parishioners
belong to human rights, environmental, social justice and similar groups that could also exhibit, urge
them to do so. Den Mark is a Fair organizer and can
answer questions about the Fair itself (694-3703).
This is major opportunity to promote our parish and
present our Episcopalian/Anglican form of Christianity. Evangelism in kit form!

Facility
PARISH HALL CEILING REPAIR
We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The contract has been signed with Team Construction Company (they did the Narthex addition) to do
the permanent repairs on the sagging ceiling in the
Parish Hall. The temporary posts will be replaced
with steel beams across the ceiling and supported
within the walls and the posts will be gone. The
beams will be wrapped with sheetrock to enhance
the appearance. The ceiling tiles will be replaced
along with new LED lighting and new fans. The
floor will be refinished at the end of the job. The
work is scheduled to commence on July 20 and we
will have full use of the facility by August 8. During
the work the Parish Hall and the basement below it
will be off limits to everyone not involved in the project. Access to the kitchen and pie room will be
worked out for those who need to have access to
them. If you have any questions about the project
you can contact Bob Hiltz, John Mathieu,
on me and we will be able to answer
them.

SPORTS AT ST. LUKE’S HALL
In 1909, the new rector of St. Luke’s, Otis Gray, had a
portion of St. Luke’s Hall converted for a gymnasium. The hall, located at Eighth and B Streets (to the
east of the church at C Street) had formerly been the
St. Luke’s Parish School, before closing in 1889. The
hall would be a new athletic club where basketball,
handball, and other games could be played. As The
Columbian printed, “The room will be fitted with
lockers and shower baths, and later on it is proposed
to install a swimming pool.” Initially the club was to
be open for men over 18 years old, but that was
quickly changed to “classes for both boys and girls
from 11 to 70 years old”.
of the YMCA in Vancouver, Washington.
(To be continued in September)

Around Town
Many basketball games were played by various
teams at the hall. There were also fencing and boxing
matches conducted, including well known sportsmen
from Fort Vancouver.
Late in 1911, the Vancouver Ministerial Association,
including religious leaders from all churches in Vancouver, set up a youth gymnasium program using
the St. Luke’s Hall. This is essentially the forerunner
