Christian Formation

The Formation Program at St. Luke’s is designed to prepare adult parishioners for Baptism, Confirmation, Reception, or the Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows at the Easter Vigil. It is a way for people to find their way “home” to St. Luke’s, whether from another tradition, no tradition, or a life-time with the Episcopal Church.

The Discovery Series is open to anyone interested in the subject matter, and the latter two parts are for those who have completed the Discovery Series and wish to proceed as candidates to be presented to the Bishop at the Easter Vigil.
