Our Sunday worship is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, also called the Mass.  During this service we gather together to hear God's Word in Holy Scripture, to pray together, and to celebrate the Liturgy of the Lord's supper, or Holy Communion.  

We welcome everyone!

OUR HISTORY
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.

PRAYER
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 is our daily life and work, we pray for those who are suffering and give thanks for the good things in one another's lives.  Prayer not only 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.

​ CASTING THE "NATIVITY PLAY" : ARE YOU UP TO IT?​   Sermon Teaser

Epiphany, which we will celebrate tomorrow, marks the official end of the Christmas season. This means that after the service we will bid farewell to our Creche which has been in front of the Altar since the First Sunday of Advent, with children bringing different figures up each week. Tomorrow they will bring up the three "Wise Men" (Why?). Just for fun, see if you can find where in the Bible our "Cast of characters" in the Creche are identified as being there at the manger. I'll list them below, and your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to fill in the chapter and verse where they appear. Hint: You can limit your search to Luke 2:1-20 & Matthew 2:1-12.
Good luck!
