Honor a Loved One and Help Restore the Beauty of our Church


Interior of St. Luke Church

St. Luke has created a list of opportunities for friends of St. Luke to help revitalize the interior of the church through our Commemorative Gift Program. These donations will enable us to enhance the lighting, painting, and deep cleaning needed to restore the beauty of our church -- which will be recognized with a plaque that can be dedicated to your family or other loved onea.

What's Happening?

Unity Temple
Tour July 26

Our Prime Timers have planned a guided tour of the Unity Temple in Oak Park, which is Frank Lloyd Wright's only remaining public Prairie-style building. The 1905 structure, which is still used for worship, recently underwent two years of renovation. The group will leave from our Hospitality House for a 10:30 tour and lunch afterwards at Winberie's. The $13 cost must be pre-paid, so RSVP to Serry at 288-1948 no later than July 22.


Summer Book
Discussion Group

St. Luke's Peace and Justice Committee has organized a series of discussions on a topic cited by Pope Francis as a concern for the Church -- clericalism -- on Mondays July 22 and August 5 from 7:30 to 9:00 pm in the Hospitality House. The book the group will use is authored by Rev. George B. Wilson, S.J. entitled "Clericalism: The Death of Priesthood," describes how this issue affects many secular professions as well as those in the Church. The text is available from Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions.


Bocce Ball Games
Every Thursday

The Prime Timers invite newcomers to join them in the friendly game of Bocce Ball from 9:30-11:00 am every Thursday this summer on the courts across Lake Street from the Jewel Store. Even if you've never played before, you'll find the game is easy to learn, and there's no fee!
