St Luke is a small Catholic community in southern Jefferson County, KY. We are affiliated and share staff and pastor with St Rita in Okolona. We have a lot of different things going on in our community. If you're interested in assisting in any of the functions or activities of the parish, please don't be shy and introduce yourself.

Our youth participate in a two parish group and collectively are referred to as the Circle of Life Youth. Just this past year, the kids have traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the annual Walk for Life held in January. Several of our young adults traveled to Panama to participate in World Youth Day. The final Mass was attended by over 700,000 people. Each year, the youth produce a series of short plays featuring different saints and present this presentation to the three parishes. This event has been picked up as a workshop presentation this year at the annual National Catholic Youth Conference.

We have an amazing bunch of cooks in our family. St Luke hosts a great feedbag 10 times a year with an all you can eat chicken dinner held after the 10AM Mass on the second Sundays. There's always need for help setting up, tearing down or lending a hand in the kitchen. Oh, of course, there's a need to help eat all that great chicken too.

Each first Wednesday, there is an hour of Adoration and Night prayer held in the small chapel at 7PM. This is an excellent quiet time of reflection and closing with night prayer. Please check our calendar page to ensure this is ahppening. Occasional conflicts cause us to reschedule.

We also have an excellent lending library of Catholic reading for all ages. Check out some of St Pope John Paul II's writings or more contemporary Catholic writers like Scott Hahn. Good videos and books for the wee folk too.

Physical amenities of the parish allow for large gatherings in the gym or smaller gatherings in the education space. Both are available for rental at fair prices. We also have access to a very good DJ.

The parish also hosts a thespian troupe, the Wilderness Trail Players. This group began over 25 years ago and has provided the parish with stage productions of many plays over the years. The troupe also travels to other venues in the metro area. So if you have an actors heart, check out the WTP.

Come visit and see what the St Luke community can offer your family and what you can offer the St Luke family.
