About St. Luke's Episcopal Church
St. Luke's is a part of the worldwide Anglican communion, in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago. We are part of Christ's one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church, which has carried on the work of Jesus Christ for nearly two thousand years.
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.

This meeting was held upstairs with the Dixon High School Madrigal Choir.
One of the most popular events, are the Canterbury Concerts.
The Anglican Communion has a rich musical heritage. Cathedral evensong, polyphony by Byrd and Gibbons, anthems by Tallis, rousing oratorios by Handel, the best-loved hymns of Wesley and Vaughan Williams, and the stately music of Elgar are just some of the highlights of our tradition. This tradition is strong at St. Luke's, where music and the spoken word combine to strengthen each other and provide a focused and meaningful worship experience. We are blessed to have a variety of musical and liturgical elements as part of our regular schedule. Our main Sunday service features the best-loved hymns of each season of the Church year, led by talented organists and a gifted choir.

If you are a parishioner at St. Luke's or a new person to St. Luke's, we are glad you are here! If it is your first time worshiping with us, there are a couple of things you may want to know. One is that in the Episcopal Church, we truly welcome everyone, wherever you might be on their journey of faith. You may choose to sit, stand, or kneel during the different parts of the service; as we are each free to commune with God in ways that are most meaningful and comfortable to us. We also welcome you to the altar rail to receive either Holy Communion or a blessing. Please sign our guest book so we can let you know about upcoming events, and join us for coffee hour following the service. If you have questions or would like more information about St. Luke's, please contact our Priest, Fr. Wes, at 858.688.7783 or email him at email@example.com. Thank you.
