Welcome to St. Luke !

We welcome you to St. Luke. Whether you are already Orthodox or are still looking for the right church for you and your family, we invite you to “come and see”. As an Orthodox church, our faith is that proclaimed by Christ and handed down through the Apostles and the fathers. As a parish, we are a welcoming community of various ethnic backgrounds and ages who come together as one in the love of Christ. We invite you to come worship with us and then join us in our ‘coffee hour’ to share fellowship together.

Parish Bulletin & Other Announcements

The Holy Wonderworking Unmercenary Physicians Cosmas and Damian




Out of Christian love and concern to reduce the spread of the Corona virus to those around us, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon has instructed that all parishes in the Archdiocese be closed through April 1.  He lovingly urges us to continue our prayer and worship life at home (and remotely). To assist us in these challenging times, the OCA has created a new corona virus tab on the OCA web page ( ) which provides many resources for us including worship materials and urls for streamed services.  
All this is being done out of Christian love and concern for those around us -- as a spiritual sacrifice for our brothers and sisters.
His Beatitude will continue to keep us updated as the situation evolves.
If you have any questions or if there is any way I can help you in this time of need, please do not hesitate to contact me at
And please take care of yourselves and your families.
With love and prayers,
Fr. John
