St. Luke the Evangelist is a  parish in the Diocese of Worcester, MA




Welcome to Saint Luke The Evangelist Parish - Westborough, MA

St. Luke the Evangelist Parish is a Roman Catholic community in the Diocese of Worcester. We strive to learn, teach and joyfully live the fullness of our Faith and serve God and our neighbors in charity and truth. We faithfully celebrate the Sacraments, pray together as a community and give generously of our time, talent and treasure to live and promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our daily lives.
Please visit the various areas of our web site to learn about Saint Luke's staff, activities and ministries.

St. Luke's Lenten Programs and Liturgies

In our busy world, Lent is a reminder that we can begin anew and try harder to live our faith. Lent provides us with a wonderful opportunity to grow in our relationship with God, by praying more deeply, experiencing sorrow for what we have done and failed to do, and being generous to those in need. The ashes on Ash Wednesday remind us of our death, it’s true, but they do that only to assure us of the new life that is ours for the asking.

St. Luke’s offers many opportunities to grow in our relationship with God, and we invite you to find a way that speaks to your heart. Mass is celebrated during the week (Monday-Friday) at 9:00am. Set time aside on Tuesday for meditation and prayer with the Blessed Sacrament.

Catholic Relief Services’ Operation Rice Bowl invites us to pray with our families and faith communities, fast in solidarity with those who are hungry, learn about our brothers and sisters around the world, and give sacrificial contributions to help those in need. Visit orb.crs.org for additional resources to use at home.

Soup & Stations

Once again, Saint Luke's will be having Soup and Stations at 6 pm on February 27th.This is a truly lovely and moving service, in which we travel the Passion of Jesus through the Stations of the Cross, accompanied by music, word, and prayers. Afterward we all go to the Parish Center for Clam Chowder, Macaroni and Cheese, and Salad. Although it was designed to be understood well by children, many adults come to this and enjoy it very much. If you have any questions, call Ellen Linn at the Rectory, 508-366-5502.

Eucharistic Adoration

Lord, help us to come and sit with You and let us do everything we can do to draw others to Eucharistic Adoration. Help us to see that every time we sit with You, You give us a sense of well being, and that well being helps us walk the talk and not just talk the talk. Jesus, help us always to be authentic in our lives, by being so in love with You, that You truly become our central focus and purpose. Let us be all that You want us to be and let us give to all, that all may see the Christ in us. Jesus, the gift of Your presence in the Eucharist should fill us with gratitude and love.

There will be Stations of the Cross every Friday after the 9:00am  Mass except on Marach 6 and March 13 when Msgr. Mike will be away.
