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.

In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith,
