Welcome to

St Luke's Episcopal Church

 

We welcome you with open arms!

You are welcome to Worship with us. Holy Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion or The Lord’s Supper) is central to our worship life. St. Luke’s is an inclusive, welcoming, and Christ-centered community of faith committed to creating a deeper sense of belonging with God and embracing others in fellowship.

Wherever you are in your journey of faith, there is a place for you at St. Luke’s. You are welcome to connect with our parish to whatever extent you would like - to worship, support, serve, learn, or meet friends.

Our diocese having consulted with the ecclesiastical authority and in accordance with the State of Illinois COVID-19 has permitted in person worship.  We must continue wearing face covering, physical distancing, and frequent hand sanitation.

We recently have been given permission to have up to four singers, (masked and keeping approved social distance) assist in worship.

The congregation can follow the hymns, etc. as the Book of Common Prayer and Hymnal are back in the pews, but singing is not allowed yet.

Our organist also does meaningful and beautiful chant.

Some of the Beautiful Organ Pipes of

Our Stunning Organ that fills St Luke's with joyful music.

MUSIC DURING HOLY COMMUNION

We continue with superb organ literature as preludes, postludes and meditations throughout the Eucharist. The Organ has recently been tuned and further upgraded in the last few weeks. The brilliant Festival Trumpet En chamade over the Nave doorway has added thrilling sounds in particular at pivotal moments during our worship. We are blessed to have such a versatile instrument and an organist who knows how to use it all.
