All are Welcome Here. All are Loved Here. There are No Exceptions.

St. Luke’s Cathedral welcomes all people to share in the Episcopal Church’s mission to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Jesus Christ.

We are a community of faith that combines ancient worship and modern thought with catholic traditions and progressive theology. Our Biblical perspective is centered on respect for reason, science, diversity of perspective, compassion, and care for the wider community and one another. Our attitudes and beliefs are modeled on the Kingdom of God that Jesus proclaimed. This means that we are committed to including and welcoming all who seek the Kingdom of God that Jesus proclaimed.

Whomever you are, and wherever you may be in your journey through life, we welcome you!  We offer a safe, open, and affirming environment for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or where you might be on your journey of faith.

Worship Services

7:30 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Emmanuel Chapel)

A small gathering in the chapel without music, this is a simple and meditative service of communion with a short, usually extemporaneous, sermon, this service uses either the beautiful Elizabethan language of Rite I of the prayerbook or an abridged version of the 10am service.

10:00 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Nave & Livestream)

With the cathedral choir and organ, this service includes full sermon and celebration of communion using Rite II or other forms of the Eucharist. On days of great celebration, incense and chanting of the service are typical. Healing prayers are offered during this service.

4:00 pm Choral Evensong (First Sunday of each month)

A service sung by the cathedral choir and chanted by cathedral clergy, this vespers service offers music in a meditative setting drawn from the English Cathedral tradition. On days of celebration, incense is common.

5:15 pm Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Emmanuel Chapel) (Seasonal)

This is a casual, come-as-you-are service of Holy Communion in Emmanuel chapel. It is a delightful informal time of worship and wonderful way to end your Sunday afternoon.

Please note, with Dean Shambaugh's departure, the 5:15 pm Sunday Service will go on hiatus. This service will be on seasonal status with the appointment of a full time interim. For additional questions please email the Rev. Dr. K. Paul St. Germain.

Tuesday Service

12:10 Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Emmanuel Chapel)

A brief, 30 minute or less, informal communion service in the chapel, with a short reflection on the Saints Day of the week. A wonderful mid-week time of meditation and prayer.

Worship is time spent giving honor and praise to God. It is the primary work of the church. Worship feeds us so that we can feed others. It is time that reminds us of who we are, and who we are called to be. It is a time for healing and wholeness, a time for solace and quiet, and a time for communion with others and with God. St. Luke’s offers a wide variety of worship opportunities: some more formal, some more casual; some filled with music and activity, and some more quiet and contemplative.

The word “worship” is a combination of the English words “worth-ship” which means assigning worth and honor. The word “liturgy” is a combination of the Greek words “laos” (people) + “ergon” (work). Using the richness of our Anglican tradition, our worship is both ancient and modern, grounded in the past yet informed by the future. Our sacraments, our doors, and our hearts are truly open to all. We invite and encourage you to join us in one of the many opportunities for worship here at St. Luke’s.
