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
April 22, 2018
Fourth Sunday of Easter
“He is the stone rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.” This is St Peter preaching again in the First Reading from the Acts of the Apostles. However, in this instance he is speaking at his own trial. He and St. John had been imprisoned.
What a different man Peter is compared to the man who denied Jesus in fear! Peter is no longer intimidated by the authorities; keep in mind that this is in effect the same court which condemned Christ to crucifixion. Earlier in Acts we witness Peter and the other disciples being filled with the Holy Spirit. This is not a one-time event, but something ongoing throughout their lives.
A woman named Corrie Ten Boom was a resistance leader and practitioner in the Netherlands in World War II. She and her sister provided a hiding place for Jews and others being sought by the Nazis. She later wrote a book titled The Hiding Place about those experiences. The Ten Booms were betrayed in 1944, arrested, and brought to trial. What she stated at that trial very much parallels what we hear from St. Peter today. She cited the power of the Holy Spirit.
She said, “Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.” Like St. Peter and Corrie Ten Boom, we are all filled with the Holy Spirit. Do we let it flow out of us?
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.
