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 24, 2018
The Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Today is the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (the Feast Day of the birth of John the Baptist). To say John the Baptist and Jesus were closely related and connected is an understatement.
Both were foretold by prophets, especially Isaiah. The only record of the birth of John the Baptist appears in the Gospel of Luke and it is at the heart of our Gospel Reading today. A key player in this event is, of course, John the Baptist’s father Zechariah. Zechariah was a Jewish priest, but when the Archangel Gabriel revealed to him that he would father a child, Zechariah refused to believe it. As a result he was rendered speechless until John was born.
Zechariah had total trust in the Lord, however. Although it was traditional at that time to name the first son after the father, he and Elizabeth had been told that they were to name him John. As reported in the Gospel, Elizabeth said “He will be called John.” The family protested at which time Zechariah wrote “His name is John.” When he did that, Zechariah could speak once more. He did not say “should be”; he said “is.”
The trust shown by Zechariah is an example to us that we must trust in God, not just when it is convenient, but all the time. Those of advanced generations know who Lawrence Welk was. Born and raised Catholic, Welk practiced his faith throughout his life. He once said, “Never trust anyone completely but God. Love people, but put your full trust only in God.”

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.
