  • The Reverend Audrey MIskelley,

    Interim Rector

    St. Luke’s is pleased to announce effective September 1st, 2018, the calling of our new interim rector, Audrey Miskelley. We welcome her with open arms and hearts! The Reverend Audrey Miskelley moved to Northern California in 2012 with her husband Ray and daughter Anna. Reverend Audrey has worked in the Episcopal Church as both ordained and lay staff, for over 15 years, focusing her ministry experience working especially with parish transitions, outreach and healthy church growth and dynamics. Audrey has a varied background in higher education and law and is a proud veteran of the U.S. Army. Audrey and husband Ray have just sent off their youngest, Anna, to college in Washington, D.C.; they also have two sons and four grandchildren.

  • The Reverend Mike Reddig,

    Priest Associate

    Born and raised in the Midwest (North Dakota), Mike joined the Air Force after undergraduate school at the University of Jamestown. The best part of that chapter of his life was when he met the Air Force nurse (Judith) who would later become his wife. After five years in the Air Force, they settled in Charlottesville, Virginia, thinking they’d be there forever. But the Air Force wanted Mike back in, so now with a young son, the family moved to Sacramento, CA, to begin what would be eighteen more years of living around the United States and Europe. In the Air Force Mike managed customer service operations (dining/lodging/recreation/shopping/mortuary affairs) at base command, and finally at the Pentagon level, from where he retired in 1996.

    Mike had already begun another masters program at George Washington University and once graduated, he taught school in suburban Washington DC for a couple of years before going back to school full time for three years at Virginia Theological Seminary. He was ordained to the diaconate in 2002, and as a priest 6 months later, serving churches on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He retired again in 2012 and Judith and Mike moved to San Francisco to be near their two children and their spouses. Last fall, the Reddig's moved to the Sequoias on Geary Blvd, and soon found a welcoming home at St. Luke’s.

    Per Reverend Mike, "I’m grateful to be associated with such a vibrant congregation with such a rich history. It’s a pleasure to be able to sing in the choir with Steve and the rest of the St. Luke’s musicians, and I look forward to getting to know the good people of St. Luke’s in the coming weeks and months."   

  • Steve Repasky, 

    Music Director

    Steve Repasky is our Director of Music.  He comes to us from serving seven years as Associate Music Director at St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church and nearly thirty years as Director of Music at St. Patrick Church.  Steve is also a partner in the company that maintains, repairs, and cares for our wonderful Aeolian-Skinner organ -- Hupalo & Repasky Pipe Organs, LLC, of San Leandro.  Mr. Repasky holds a bachelor of music degree in organ performance from YSU as well as a master's degree from US Berkeley.  Steve is an active member in the American Guild of Organists, the Organ Historical Society, and the American Institute of Organ Builders. 

  • Birgit Jacobsen, 

    Parish Administrator

    Long-time parishioner and friend of the parish, Birgit Jacobsen, became our Parish Administrator in December of 2014.  Birgit had devoted her career to running her own business as a designer and decorator (she painted the stars above St. Luke's high altar in the chancel and redesigned the Trinity Chapel to name just two projects...) and in 2014 decided to turn her volunteer work for the church into a ministry.  One cannot "work" in the church without it becoming a calling.  Birgit is a valued member of our staff - and we sincerely thank her for being committed to the success and ongoing operation of St. Luke's Parish.  We are truly grateful to have Birgit as Parish Administrator.

    Office Volunteer

    Celebrating a Long Life

    Well Lived

    Robert (Bob) Edwin Lederer, age 96, died peacefully on Sunday, January 7, 2018 in San Francisco. He was a buoyant spirit and gallant gentleman, attentive and generous friend, cherished family member, well-loved neighbor, masterly home chef and baker, opera aficionadoand an open window to the joy of this world. 

    Robert was born on September 16, 1921 in Washington DC, enlisted in the Navy in June 1941, served in the Pacific as a Navy medical corpsman attached to the Marines in the battles of Peleliu and Okinawa, and participated in the Philippine Liberation. He attended Church Divinity School of the Pacific (1962-1965) and was ordained as an Episcopal priest. After retiring from the Church, he spent many years working in the international shipping business, retiring from his second career in his early 80s. Robert attended Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church since 1969 and was an enthusiastic volunteer there for 30 years. 

    Throughout his life, Robert embodied an optimism and kindness that drew others to him. Many individuals found counsel, friendship, mentoring and love through their relationships and time with him. He also supported uncountable individuals in their personal life quests whenever he could with financial or moral support. An angel of a man who touched so many lives, we are deeply moved by his example and spirit.
