St Lukes represents not only our Church and School community, it is a Portal for learning about, knowing and loving our Savior Jesus Christ and reflecting His Light to others in our community. “ Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…” Rev 3:20 I feel that our Church and School is that door and I want to serve and support St. Lukes. I would be honored to be part of the Vestry’s mission to partner with our Clergy and Staff to discern the Will of God for the future of St Lukes Church and School.

Began attending St Luke’s Church: 1975

Ministries supported:
  • Acolyte Guild
  • Children’s Choir
  • Green Door Thrift Shop
  • Luke’s Episcopal School

St. Luke’s has been my home for most of my life, since I moved here from England in 1975. I was confirmed by Bishop Scott Field Bailey, served as an acolyte through high school, and Claude and I were married here in 1993. My children Henry and Serena attended St. Luke’s Episcopal School from ages 3 and 2 until graduation from 8th Grade. I began teaching Middle School History at St Luke’s Episcopal School in 2010, and also filled other roles such as department chair and student advisor. I retired from full-time teaching in 2019 and I am now on the substitute roster. I loved being part of the school, an important ministry of our church, and that is why I would like to serve on the Vestry now, in order to do more to support my church family.

St. Luke’s is special to me because it provides me a place to grow my faith and to find ways to serve in the outside community. I want to serve on the Vestry to help guide St. Luke’s future and get to know the workings of the church that I do not see on a daily basis.
Lisa Petrosky
Occupation: Interior Designer, Owner of HSI Design Group – a hospitality design and procurement firm

Began attending St Luke’s Church: late 1980’s

Ministries supported:
  • Usher Guild
  • Served on the Vestry 20 years ago
  • Former Acolyte Team Leader

When I joined St. Luke’s around 35 years ago, I knew I had found my church home. There was a spirit of joy among the parishioners, a big change from the Roman Catholic church in which I had been raised, and it helped me to rediscover my faith. My husband and I were married here, my daughter was baptized here and served as an acolyte, and two of her children have been baptized here and currently attend St. Luke’s Episcopal School, where my daughter has served as the school nurse. St. Luke’s is in a great place now under Father Irv’s leadership and the growth we are seeing with young families joining the church is very exciting. To serve on the vestry at this time would be an honor as we continue to grow the parish and I hope to engage more people in the various ministries we offer.
