The Clucas Memorial Stole of the Church of St. Luke and The Epiphany (1987)

Rose Sunday at the Church of St. Luke and The Epiphany means Rev. Rodger Broadley celebrates the service vested in a rose stole. I was unfamiliar with the history of the rose stole until Rodger made reference to it in his sermon. The stole was made by the mother of Lowell Clucas III (1944-1986), who was most likely the first congregant at the Church of St. Luke and The Epiphany to die from AIDS-related complications. A year after his tragic death, his mother presented this stole to the parish. I suspect very few at SLATE would recognize the name Lowell Clucas. It is up to us today to remember Lowell, as well as the many others like him whose lives were tragically cut short. More about Lowell’s life, including a picture, can be found on here.
