Parish Mission Statement

We are members of St. Luke Parish, a Roman Catholic Community of Faith within the Diocese of Youngstown.  We are deeply rooted in both Scripture and tradition.

Born in Baptism and sustained by the celebration of the Eucharist, we embrace our life in Christ through prayer and sacrament, service and outreach, proclamation of the Word and formation in faith.  Guided by the Holy Spirit and motivated by our love of God and of all people, we are both a sign and an instrument of the Kingdom of Promise.

Our unique blessing and gift is that we are a parish family which creates a warm and welcoming worship environment and participates fully in the planning and celebration of the Liturgy.

Stewardship Reflection for
June 25, 2017
Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

We are reminded in today’s readings that we are human, and that as a result of that we are sinners, and we inherit that sin from the very beginning, from Adam. St. Paul points that out in our Second Reading from Romans 2. Were you aware that in Hebrew the name Adam means “humanity?”

In today’s Gospel Reading from Matthew, Jesus also reminds us of the fact that we are sinners, but He also prompts us to remember that one of the reasons we sin is because we fear other humans and the consequences of living out our faith more than we fear the Lord Himself. Jesus says, “…do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.”

“Gehenna” is translated in some Bible versions as “Hell.” What the Lord is trying to communicate to us may be that we probably tend to fear earthly matters and earthly people more than we fear God. If we are “killed” by someone or something on earth it is the body only which dies. However, shrinking back from God’s call can have eternal consequences.

“Saving grace” and being saved are probably not thoughts on which we like to dwell, but they are real, and we need to recognize that. St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote, “The saved are few, but we must live with the few if we would be saved with the few. O God, too few indeed they are; yet amongst those few I wish to be.”


Parish Activities

Theology on tap

 

Young Adult Events for 20s and 30s

Theology on Tap is a program that reaches out to young adults who want to explore the role of faith in their daily lives. In this fun and casual atmosphere, you’ll hear straight talk and honest answers to your deepest questions about faith, religion, love, work and other real life experiences. Theology on Tap provides an opportunity to not only learn about the Catholic faith but also meet like-minded people and make new friends. Theology on Tap is open to all young adults, married and single, ages 21-39. We generally meet on the 3rd Wed. of the month and we switch locations every 3 months. Join us for an informal gathering of drinks, food, faith and fun for young adults.

Even though this event may be interesting to all, we please ask that only those in their 20s and 30s attend these events.
