Through its 140 years, St. Luke’s has achieved distinction in worship. This distinction continues to permit worshipers, no matter how diverse their cultural roots, to live out their baptism and grow in relationship to God. We are faithful to the Anglican Communion and related liturgical traditions. We are a community bound together and identified by our liturgy, worshiping according to the Book of Common Prayer, 1979.
We emphasize the importance of the Eucharist. Each Sunday, we are restored to unity with God and each other in Christ through our participation in the sacrament. We put a great deal of emphasis on baptismal renewal throughout our church year, holding infant baptismal during the mass on the second Sunday of each month. We adhere strictly to the liturgical calendar. It provides an opportunity to express our worship through the recurring cycles. It also places us in contact with God’s active experience of salvation.
The 10AM service is a high mass following Rite II or various liturgy from other cultures as appropriate. This service carries out the ceremonial traditions of St. Luke’s which includes showing respect by bowing, genuflecting, kneeling, standing, processing, and incensing.
