Thank you for your patience as we create a new website.

Welcome to the Cathedral Church of St. Luke!

We are a community of faith with ancient worship and modern thought, catholic traditions and progressive theology, a Biblical perspective for thinking people, respect for reason, science, and diversity of perspective, compassion and care for the wider community and one another, and a commitment to radical welcome and inclusion… all modeled on the Kingdom of God that Jesus proclaimed.  Whoever you are and wherever you may be in your journey through life, we welcome you!  Our Sunday School and Adult Programs are currently being offered both in-person and online.  Thank you for your patience as we build our new website.

Faith In Action

COVID Update

When the COVID Level is green, mask-wearing is no longer required for worship or other activities at St. Luke’s, including singing. When the COVID level is red or yellow, we will ask people to mask and may follow more stringent protocols. We ask everyone to respect those who wish to remain masked regardless of the level to join in our commitment to welcome and hospitality for all.

We ask all people to use hand sanitizer as they enter the cathedral and before communion. Additionally, we ask that people with “cold” or COVID symptoms stay home, joining us for worship online.
