Welcome

OUR PARISH

The buildings for our young Church and School were Dedicated on November 27, 1960. Since that first Dedication, we have continued to improve and build new structures to accommodate the ever-growing needs of our Parish Family. In 2009, another expansion and renovation to our Church facility was completed, and in November of 2011 we dedicated our new gym complex.

Today, St. Luke’s caters to over 4,630 families through our many ministries and services. Our Catholic School has 519 students enrolled (Pre-K -8th), our religious education programs guide more than 500 children and 120 adults through their faith development. Our various ministries and organizations serve our parishioners of every age and background.4

Our parish has seen many changes over its 50 years of existence, and the past year has been no different. We look forward to continuing to build our future, with our Pastor, Fr. Jim Barlow.

Vision and Direction of the Parish of St Luke

Shaping values and assisting people desiring to be formed in the likeness of Christ through generous and joyful service and vibrant liturgies of a caring community.

Parish Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is the main advisory body to the pastor and together with the pastor will oversee the well-being of the community. The decisions reached by the pastor with the advice of the Board will provide direction for the staff, volunteers and overall community.

Advisory Structure:

PA President, Vice President, Secretary selected from the 6 elected members and 7 Committee Chairpersons (Liturgy, Faith Formation, Community, Stewardship, Social Outreach, Finance, Building & Grounds). Committees will meet on their own and the chairperson or designate brings to the Advisory updates and issues beyond the Cmte’s authority for discussion and/or decision.

Fr Barlow’s (Pastor) Philosophy: This is ‘our’ community. People who are called to minister should expect empowerment to accomplish responsibilities designated by community leadership. As followers of Christ we are to be: generative, growing in the ability to care for others and to develop a sense of integrity, being at peace in the knowledge of one’s self, accomplishments and limitations.

Current Focal points:

  • Developing Collaboration as an operational norm
  • Leading our people to become generative and to develop a sense of integrity.
  • Build Community (unity/interconnectedness)
  • Motivating parishioners to take ownership of the parish
  • Improve Communication
  • Transforming Faith Formation - child through adult
  • Improve Youth, Young Adult and Senior Ministries
  • Educate the community in the area of social concerns and motivate response
  • Enhance Liturgies
  • Improve parishioners’ understanding of being Stewards of the Kingdom as Disciples of Christ – recognition and use of God’s gift of Time, Talent and Treasure.
  • Accomplish the plans of the Capital Campaign
  • Refocusing the ACTS Ministry based on the objectives of the St Luke ACTS Charter and ACTS Missions Office, calling retreatants and team members to acknowledge the ongoing movement of the Spirit through deeper relationships formed by Adoration, Community, Theology and Service.
  • Improve the working relationship of the parish community and school families.
