Who Are We?
St. Luke's is a Christian church located in Auburn, California. We are a member parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. The Episcopal Church is the American branch of the Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion is the worldwide confederation of the Protestant churches worshiping in the tradition of the Church of England and recognizing the leadership of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Welcome to St. Luke’s Church!
What to expect when you come to St. Luke’s for the first time:
At St. Luke’s you will see some people dressed casually and others dressed more formally. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
As you enter the Narthex (the entrance area of the church) you will be greeted by an usher who will hand you a bulletin that will include the details of the service for that day. During the service, simply follow along, using a hymnal when it is time to sing.
Enter the chapel and take a seat in one of the pews until the service begins. You will find an information card located in a slot on the back of the pew in front of you. Please fill one out and place it in the offering plate as it comes around later in the service so that we can get to know you.
During the Holy Eucharist, any baptized Christian is welcome to come to the altar and partake of the Sacrament. If you would rather not, simply remain in your seat until the Eucharist is complete.
After the service, please walk around to the Parish Hall and join us for coffee and snacks. We look forward to meeting you!
On Sunday, Aug 24, the St. Luke's Wine Tasters will leave the parish hall at 11:45 AM for a wine tasting afternoon. The sign-up sheet goes up on Sunday, Aug 3 in the Parish Hall. Please sign up NO LATER than Sunday, Aug. 17.
Once a month an excursion to one or two local wineries will be organized and announced in the Nugget and Bulletin. There will be a sign-up list in the Parish Hall. Advance sign-up of at least one week is needed. Each excursion will consist of a 5-10 min presentation on an aspect of viticulture, a visit to 1-2 wineries, and a picnic lunch. Participants should bring their own lunch and tasting fees.
St. Luke's Hiking Club: During seasonable weather local hikes are announced every month in the Nugget and Bulletin. Hikes are usually easy to moderate in length and difficulty and hikers are encouraged to bring water, a snack or lunch and to wear appropriate footwear.
