A special Halloween presentation of the original 1925 version of the silent film, “The Phantom of the Opera” will be presented on Friday, October 30 at 7:00pm at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 410 North Main Street in Jamestown. The showing will include live organ accompaniment by Jack Bollman, Organist at St. Stephen’s Church in Olean, NY. The film, which stars Lon Chaney Sr, and Mary Phillban is a 1925 American silent horror film adaptation of the Gaston Leroux novel of the same title, directed by Rupert Julian. Chaney was featured in the role of the disfigured Phantom, who haunts the Paris Opera House in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. Bollman, who will be playing St. Luke’s Aeolin Skinner organ, will be assisted by Owen Gould. They have become regular partners at St. Stephen’s, which now holds these silent movie events regularly three to four times per year. Having accompanied several films of this type before, including old Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton movies, Bollman calls this particular one his favorite. There will also be activities for children downstairs in the church’s Undercroft during the showing, including a special ‘Haunted Boiler Room’ as well as crafts and games. Refreshments will be served. There is no cost for the event, but a free-will offering will be collected. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to help support the James Prendergast Library Association. Supporting the arts is an important value of St. Luke’s and when we heard the that Prendergast Library was having financial difficulties we wanted to create an art offering that would help support the Library. Mary Prendergast not only...Read More

St Luke’s Thrift Shop may be closed on Tuesday mornings, but you would never know it by the amount of activity that is happening inside the small grey building, located at 409 Pine Street in Jamestown. Every Tuesday, a dozen or so volunteers gather to spend their mornings sorting and marking donated items for sale in the tidy shop. The Thrift shop was started in 1982, with the help of local merchant and St. Luke’s parishioner, George Matthews, who owned Matthews and Miller, a clothing store that was located in downtown Jamestown. The 48 current volunteers come from a variety of sources – over a quarter of them are not members of the church, but have joined the group by recommendation of a friend or because they were former customers. Most of the volunteers have been working at the thrift shop for several years. “We are like a sisterhood” commented one of the workers. “We work hard, but we have fun!” The store offers a variety of clothing and shoes for women, men and children and some toys and household goods. The merchandise is restocked for every season. The clients come from many backgrounds; some are referred by local agencies because of need, but most come because of the shops reputation for value-priced, high quality goods. The donations come from various sources, but only the best make it to the sales floor. “We are quite particular with the things that we choose to sell.” said one of the volunteers. “We do make sure that nothing goes to waste, though. What we feel we cannot use we donate to other shops in the area.” St. Luke’s Thrift Shop is not...Read More

Children of all ages are welcome at all services. Young people are encouraged to take an active role as acolytes, readers and musicians. Parishioners greet each other in a lively and friendly manner during the Exchange of the Peace, and Baptisms are usually celebrated as an entire congregation.
