What is St. Luke’s?
St. Luke’s is a cathedral – a place of worship, prayer, spiritual formation, and care that serves and transforms the city of Portland and the Diocese of Maine. It is a center of learning and compassion and growth, a beacon of hope and light and place of gathering that welcomes all people and then sends them out to be and build the Kingdom of God. It a place firmly grounded in the past, active in the present, and on the cutting edge of the future, with a spirituality formed in ancient practices and a theology
It a place firmly grounded in the past, active in the present, and on the cutting edge of the future, with a spirituality formed in ancient practices and a theology of modern faith.
It is also a church, a community of people who come together for comfort and spiritual growth, for times of joy and times of sorrow, and for healing and for hope.
It is a thin place – a place where people can experience the holy in the sacraments in one another, where they discover who they are and whose they are, and where through the grace of Jesus Christ they can experience forgiveness, reconciliation and new life.
We who call St. Luke’s home believe in this place. We believe that people can find God and be empowered by God in this place.
We believe this can happen to you and invite you to join us on the next step of your spiritual journey.
