Our young people are important to us.  All the children of the world!  Kids are welcome in the worship service.  If there are children "sounds" in our service, we view those "sounds" as music.  

All ages are included from the very young to the young at heart.

St. Luke's has a rich history in Dixon, IL.  The first Episcopal services in Dixon, Illinois were held in 1837 by the Rev. Philander Chase, Bishop of Illinois.  The Episcopal Church of St. Luke, Dixon, was founded in  1838 by Rev. James DePui, "Missionary at Large," who built a rectory on land donated by "Father" John Dixon.  

As a Christian community, we at St. Luke's live to support and encourage one another in all kinds of prayer.  We pray for one another in our daily life and work, we pray for those who are suffering and in an trouble, and we give thanks for the good things in one another's lives.  Prayer not only binds us together as a community, but it binds us together with the whole body of Christ's Church throughout the world, and throughout history.  Prayer enriches our lives also by offering us peace of mind, body, and spirit, grace, and the unfathomable riches of God's presence among us.
