Luke's Online

During this time, we are all challenged to stay connected and even look at how we live out of faith in many ways.

Luke’s Online is simply our way of helping people find and give hope through Jesus Christ, virtually!  While we’d love to see you in person, this gives anyone anywhere in the world the opportunity to be active in our online community.  See below for more information on ways to Worship, Grow and Go in your Faith.
More information will be added to this page almost daily, so please be sure to check back soon!

Stations of the cross - Images of jesus

Pilgrims for centuries have journeyed to Jerusalem to walk in the final footsteps of Jesus along the Via Delorosa, the Way of the Cross. During the Crusades it was not safe to go to Jerusalem so villages in Europe began to create 14 Stations to tell the story of Jesus last journey, from his meeting with Pilate to his burial in the tomb. Almost every Catholic Church in the world has the Stations of the Cross displayed. These traditional stations have been adapted for the St. Luke’s community. Using some of the art we have in the Jesus Gallery, our Stations of the Cross is moving online this year. Questions for meditation are available along with the images.
