Spiritual Life

Welcome to St. Luke’s Episcopal School! Our school is the largest ministry of St. Luke’s Church. Teachers, Clergy, Administration, and Staff all work together to create an environment of high academic standards which are deeply rooted in our Christian faith. St. Luke’s School is an environment where we cultivate the spiritual lives of our students through worship, service, prayer, study, and much more.

At St. Luke’s we strive to have a holistic approach to education that does not ignore the spiritual nature of our children or the spiritual realities of the world in which we live. St. Luke’s is a Christ-centered church and school. The rhythm of our weekly worship, the love that we model and expect from our students, and the way we care for one another in times of difficulty all serve to reflect this reality. We see the pursuit of truth through the academic disciplines and the pursuit of Truth through the worship of God to be one seamless reality. Christianity is not merely an aspect or a part of our education; it is more like a lens through which we view our whole lives, as well as everyone else in the world around us. Scripture, Tradition, and Reason are our primary sources of authority and they govern our faith, morals, worship, teaching, and everything that we do.

St. Luke’s School is also committed to open inquiry to asking even difficult questions about God and about the world around us in an environment of safety and mutual respect. St. Luke’s is a school with an atmosphere of acceptance and security where students of all faith traditions will feel comfortable. We welcome in our school children and families from any religious background, and we respect the varieties of religious practices which are present within our student body.

Once, as Jesus was walking about with his disciples, he was approached by an inquirer with an extremely important question: Of all the commandments in Scripture, which one is the most important? And to this question, Jesus replied:The most important one is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

It is our genuine desire that our beloved students learn to love God and to love their neighbors with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. If we have done this well, we have fulfilled our purpose, as a church and as a school.

Chapel Services:

PreK-3, PreK-4 and Kindergarten attend an abbreviated service without the Eucharist and is held every Thursday at 8:30 in the church. Family members are always welcome to attend and sit with the students. 

1st - 8th grade celebrates the traditional Eucharist every Tuesday morning at 8:30 in the church. Parents are always welcome to attend and sit with the students. It is a wonderful opportunity to see the student body assemble and to hear the beautiful music of children’s voices.
