Faith Formation Volunteers Needed!

Would you like to feel uplifted? Inspired? Connected by your faith? Teachers/Catechists are needed in our Faith Formation programs. Have you ever thought of sharing your faith for one hour per week? How did you learn about God and faith? Most likely from a role model! If you are reading this and are someone who attends Mass regularly and have faith to share, then please consider spreading the Good News from the Gospel with the young people of our Parish by becoming a Catechist. The benefits are out of this world!

Volunteers are needed for the following days and times:
  • Sundays, 7:45-8:45 AM (Grades 2-6)
  • Sundays, 10:30-11:30 AM (Grades 1-6 and SPRED)

On Care for the Common Home
Laudato Si


To read the encyclical letter please click here.

“LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”

 St. Luke’s Parish Pastoral Council Nominations

The purpose of the Parish Pastoral Council is to investigate pastoral matters, to consider them thoroughly, and to propose practical conclusions about them. The Council presents these conclusions to the Pastor in the form of recommendations.

Parish life today is complex. At St. Luke’s, hundreds of volunteers serve in liturgical, educational, outreach, and social ministries and activities. With so many decisions, activities, and goals, having clear, Gospel-based priorities is essential to St. Luke’s mission.

The Parish Pastoral Council is an essential part of the St. Luke’s community, carefully considering all factors that may contribute to many important decisions affecting our Parish. Some of the expectations of Council members are:
  • Attending monthly meetings (usually lasting about 90 minutes in the evening of the fourth Monday of every month; a dial-in number is provided for those unable to attend in person).
  • Discussing, voting on, and making recommendations to the Pastor on a variety of issues affecting St. Luke’s.
  • Participating in an ad hoc committee (meetings vary depending on the nature and goals of the committee).
  • Assisting in the communication of Parish Pastoral Council recommendations to the St. Luke’s Community.
  • Facilitating communications with other parish organizations (i.e. Women’s Club, Knights of Columbus, Religious Ed Board, etc.).
  • Suggesting new ideas as to how St. Luke’s can best serve its members and community.
  • At the end of the three-year term, deciding whether or not to serve another term.
To submit for name using a paper form click here.

To submit your name through our on line form click here.

Interested nominees should submit their names by August 15th.   Nominees will be contacted to confirm their interest in serving, and those chosen to serve on the Committee (nominees’ names are pulled from a hat) will be notified by August 30th.

Want to Learn More About The Bible?


Beginning in the last week of September, The Great Adventure Bible Study Program will be offered weekly in the Parish Center at St. Luke’s. This is an opportunity to explore the amazing story of God’s people and to discover his plan for your life. More than 100 people from St. Luke’s have already participated in this popular program.

In this study, you will visualize the “big picture” of the biblical story as it is presented in specific books of sacred scripture. Learn more about significant people, places, events and themes within the Bible.

From this program, individual Bible reading and the readings at Sunday Mass will come alive like never before. Perhaps for the first time in your life, you will gain a greater understanding and overview of the Bible story.

The two weekly meeting time options for this program start on 9/28 and 9/30 respectively:

Monday Evenings 7:00 – 9:00 PM or Wednesday Mornings 10:00 – 12:00 AM

Sessions will meet weekly for discussion and viewing of related video segments.
There are 24 sessions concluding by Spring break in April 2016. Breaks for holidays are included in the schedule.
Materials include; study questions, a hard cover notebook, and a full color Bible Timeline.
The cost of materials is approximately $45.00 payable in cash or check at the first class (financial assistance is available).
You will also need your own Bible ( New American or New Revised Standard version) and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. These are available online, or at Boucher’s Good Books, 254 Lake Ave. Worcester. 508-755-4516
