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.

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.

Enrich your Lenten Meditation with a spiritual study on... 
SEVEN DEADLY SINS AND SEVEN LIVELY VIRTUES
 

Sin separates us from the love of God, but the practice of virtue can restore right relationship with Him. This Lent we shall journey from sin to sanctity with Bishop Robert Barron’s spiritual study on the Seven Deadly Sins and their corresponding virtues. Bishop Barron is the acclaimed author and theologian who wrote and produced the popular series on Catholicism seen during Lent here at St. Luke’s several years ago.

This program meets Wednesday, evenings 7:00-9:00pm and Thursday, mornings 9:30-11:30am in the Parish Hall, facilitated by Sharon Wilkins .  For more detail on dates and  a link to the study guide please see the bulletin.
