St. Luke is a vibrant community of teachers, learners, adults and children, sinners and saints and everyone who falls in between.  We are a family in faith and our doors are open to all.


WHEN PARTICIPATING in any St. Luke function, everyone is required to wear a mask while inside the building.

This year we are testing a new way of coordinating the faith and care.

Thought of the Week


Jesus says that the bread he gives for the life of the world is his flesh, and whoever eats this bread has eternal life now and will be raised on the last day. In Ephesians Paul tells us what this life Jesus gives us looks like, this life we live as those marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit in baptism. We live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us. The whole purpose of life is giving yourself for the other.
