Who We Are:
St. Luke’s provides a welcoming environment that sets the tone for reflection, worship, and prayer. Our worship is grounded in the liturgy of the Episcopal faith tradition. We want you to know that wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome at St. Luke’s.
Established in 1838, St. Luke’s has long sought to serve the Village of Brockport and communities beyond, whether by supporting our neighbors in times of need, comforting one another in times of sadness, or celebrating together in times of joy.
Actively engaging in the community is a hallmark of St. Luke’s. In 2000, the National Episcopal Church designated St. Luke’s a Center for Jubilee Ministry. As a Jubilee Church, we respond to God’s call to serve others by providing spiritual, financial, and volunteer support, as well as sharing our facilities with community groups and organizations.
Inclusive and Affirming
Living out our baptismal covenant, we seek “to see and serve Christ in all persons” and we “respect the dignity of every human being.” Believing that all are created in the image of God, we affirm and invite persons of all orientations to fully participate in the life of the church. Every blessing is for every person.
Prayer and Worship
The center of our shared Parish life is prayer and worship. Sunday Worship services are at 9 am. Children are invited to join in our Sunday School sessions with dedicated teachers during the Worship Service, rejoining their families for communion.
Integral to our St. Luke’s worship experience is sacred music. Under the leadership of Brenda Tremblay, St. Luke’s music ministry inspires and uplifts, and is enriched by our cantors, soloists, and guest musicians. Together we “make a joyful sound,” singing hymns accompanied by our recently acquired pipe organ, generously donated by a member of the community.
Advocates for Peace and Justice
As advocates for peace and justice, we believe we are called to “Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly with God.” (Micah 6:8) Built on a tradition of prayer, worship, and community engagement, St. Luke’s is commitment to social action and empowering others.
Ours is a faith that leads to action. One of our highest priorities is to create an environment which encourages study, inquiry, and discussion. As we grow in our understanding of the scriptures, the connection between faith and action is strengthened, encouraging us to speak for those we are not able to speak for themselves.
Caring for one another, we provide spiritual support through our prayer chain, card ministry, and weekly prayers and intercessions. We also show our care by visiting those who cannot be with us on Sundays. sharing communion and conversation, visiting shut-ins in their homes, nursing homes, or hospital rooms.
To schedule a pastoral visit, contact the Rev. Elizabeth Brooks Harden at 585-637-6650, or in case of an emergency, call 801-814-3010.
Ways to Serve
There are many opportunities to participate more fully in our worship experience, including serving on one of our ministries, such as Altar Guild or choir, or volunteering as an usher, reader, or acolyte.
We welcome opportunities to participate in community ecumenical programs and worship services, joining with area churches and organizations, and uniting in God’s love.
Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to “seek and serve Christ in all persons” to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” We give thanks for God’s blessings by giving to others through our various outreach programs. Our Jubilee Ministries include St. Luke’s Harvest Kitchen and Luke’s Layettes, as well as playing host to the Brockport Ecumenical Outreach Center’s (BEOC) Clothing Center, Brockport Food Shelf, and serving as a satellite office for the Rural and Migrant Ministry.
Our ministries also support the National Episcopal Church’s participation in the Millennium Development Goals, an eight-point program dedicated to eradicating global poverty.
