March 24:     Palm / Passion Sunday

We celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, waving palm branches         and shouting, “Hosanna!” Then as we hear the solemn reading of the Passion          Gospel, sing the solemn hymns, and partake of the Holy Eucharist, we feel                  Christ’s pain  and suffering as we understand that the Way of the Cross will lead to sorrow and death.


March 28:     Maundy / Thursday

We join together as we symbolically recreate Christ’s Last Supper.  We have       fellowship, we taste the sacrificial food and wine, and we wash each other’s                  hands.  Then, as the meal is cleared away the the Altar is stripped bare, we                quietly depart to meditate and pray.


March 31:    Easter Sunday Mass  10:30am

With joyful Alleluias, we proclaim the miracle of Christ’s Resurrection! We hear  the jubilant ringing of the bells, sing and shout “He is Risen”As we hear the sermon and celebrate the Holy Eucharist, we know beyond a doubt that Jesus died for our sins, and that He is coming again in glory.



April 1st — May 19 The Great Fifty Days

 Easter is only the beginning! As we explore the mystery of the empty tomb, Celebrate Christ’s Ascension, and witness the Dayof Pentecost, we continue to     experience the victory of God’s Grace, mercy, and love.  We invite you to grow with us during the weeks of Eastertide, as we learn  how to put our faith into action.

St. Luke's Church - Dixon,IL


The Very Rev.Thomas Rosa


Deacon, Rev.

Mary Ann Rhoades


St. Luke’s is a faith community which maintains a fairly high church liturgical tradition and embraces the theological progressive views of the Episcopal Church.  Music is an integral part of our worship experience as most services include sung masses, hymns, and choral anthems.  


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 Trumpette 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.


While Our Organist Ron Weber recovers, our parish will be blessed with an excellent organist,  Rev. Robert Bates. He has played  before and everyone loves his talented music.  Thank you, Bob!

Please join us
