Our Parish Choir is composed of men and women who are committed to leading the musical portions of our liturgies under the guidance of our music minister. Hymns, psalms, service settings, and anthems from many traditions are given equal attention. Although the choir is a volunteer group with no audition required, members attend a weekly rehearsal and a Sunday morning warm-up. Anyone who enjoys music, likes to sing, can read music, and can carry a tune is welcome. The parish choir sings at the 10 am service each week, as well as on church holidays and special occasions. In appreciation for all of their hard work, the choir gets the summer off.
Rehearsals: Thursday 7:30 pm & Sunday 11:30 am
Warm-up: Sunday 9:30 am
If you are interested in joining the Parish Choir, please reach out to our Music Minster, Ron Baltimore, firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Veronica's Guild at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Metuchen was founded by Deborah Kmetz in 2014 to provide a place for photographers at all skill levels to discuss their photographs, learn new techniques, and get questions about their equipment answered. It was named for St. Veronica, the patron saint of photographers and laundry workers. Members are from the St. Luke's community and the general public. Meetings are held in the evening on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. In recent year, Mark Harris has often run the actual meetings.
From its founding until the spring of 2020, when the COVID lockdowns began, the group met in the Fryer Room at St. Luke's. Each meeting had about 12 to 20 participants. People brought photographs to show and discuss, either as digital files or prints. Occasionally, someone would show the result of a special project or images from a recent trip. Members of the group often traveled to a nearby location in order to photograph together and compare their results at a following meeting. Members have also regularly entered Nails in the Wall Gallery, a Ministry of St. Luke's exhibits and attended gallery events.
Since 2020, meetings have been held virtually via Zoom using the St. Luke's Zoom account. In addition to the local participants, we have regular attendees from upstate NY, distant parts of New Jersey, and Ontario, Canada. We have continued with roughly the same number of attendees. We expect to begin in-person meetings again in October 2022. However, we will likely continue to have one virtual meeting each month to allow those outside the area to continue with us. We also hope to do field trips again.
The meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays are from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm. For more information please contact Mark Harris via e-mail at: email@example.com
