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.
We are currently in the process of producing a history book on St. Luke's, and plan to complete it in 2015.
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.
