Hands on Learning

At St. Luke's,

we delight in offering opportunities for children, teenagers and families to experience the joy, challenge, and beauty of Christian faith in their own spiritual lives. Formation and fellowship is available for children and youth of all ages. Families are encouraged to attend any worship services that meet their spiritual needs.

Summer Worship

Families with children of all ages are welcome to attend all worship services at St. Luke’s. We encourage you to join us each Sunday and throughout the week.

Sunday School Fall Curriculum

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered from September - June. Classes are offered after the 9:15 Mass (beginning around 10:15) in age-appropriate settings to provide children the opportunity to grow in faith by exploring Scripture, learning about prayer and worship, and enjoying fellowship with one another. If you have additional questions about Sunday School please contact Fr. Ancona.

 This Fall we introduce a new curriculum - Godly Play.
Lessons take place in the "Circle" - a symbol of Christ's unending love, wisdom and presence among us. The lessons of Godly Play are diverse and include topics ranging from Old Testament stories, Gospel Parables, Liturgical themes such as Baptism and Eucharist, as well as lessons about People of Color who inspire, and the Church today. Each story is paired with unique materials or manipulatives to assist in the work of story-telling and active wondering. Classes are designed to engage parents and adults alongside children, and all are invited to witness the lessons.
