Each summer, St. Luke’s celebrates the beauty of Chautauqua Lake by taking through our special Kayak Mass/Cano-eucharist services. Participants are invited to join the group of paddlers from 4 to 6 pm for a group excursion which will conclude with a service of Communion on the lake. The event is open to anyone, regardless of religious affiliation.
Paddlers should bring their own canoes and/or kayaks and life vests. There are also a limited number of rentals available through Evergreen Outfitters, who will deliver the kayaks and equipment to the launch site. Anyone interested in renting should contact Evergreen in advance (716-763-2266).
Since the weather determines where we will launch, participants are asked to contact the church office (716-483-6405) the Friday before the service for information on the launch site and any changes in plans.
