"Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
2 Corinthians 9:7

We Need Your Prayers!
St. Luke's is a small parish. We have about 100 active members and our average Sunday attendance is about 80-85 souls. Though small in numbers we are strong in faith. While we look toward our reception and life in the Catholic Church with great hope and expectation, we still face great uncertainty in the coming years.
According to the agreement we have with the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, we will be renting our church for a period of three years. At the end of that time we will have two options: 1) Buy back our church at 75% of current market value, or 2) undertake to purchase land and build a new church.
As I stated we are a small parish, but that does not mean we have a small vision for our future. Instead, we believe we have been given the vision of God for our future. We believe St. Luke's will grow, and it is our aspiration to build a new church and facilities that will enable us to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and provide for the many needs of the people in our neighborhood and surrounding area. We hope a new facility would provide for space to offer before and after school programs, health screening, and youth programs - perhaps, even a school itself.
Whether we build anew or purchase our current building, we have only three years to do so.
We ask for your support. Please keep us in your prayers; pray that we will remain faithful to, and able to accomplish all that God has given us to do. If you would like to contribute to our vision and ministry it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for your support!
