Spiritual Life

At St. Luke's, we believe that we are on a spiritual journey together. The life of the spirit grows over time through learning together, worship in community, fellowship, and putting our faith into action in the world around us by serving our neighbor. 


Read on to find some of the ways St. Luke's supports the spiritual life of our members. 

Baptism & Confirmation

With water, and in the name of the Holy Trinity, people of all ages are baptized and confirmed into the Christian faith and life. We are always beloved of God no matter where are on our journey of faith; through the waters of baptism we enter into the Body of Christ.


St. Luke's welcomes all those who are seeking the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, reception and reaffirmation. It would be our joy to welcome you or your loved one into the church. 


Funeral & Memorial Services

Services include worship planning with clergy, musical selection and performance, bulletin production, set-up and coordination. 


Please contact the Parish Office at 1-415-673-7327 to talk with a clergy member about scheduling a baptism or funeral.  

Bible Exploration

Were there really multiple authors of the book of Isaiah? Why are the gospels of Matthew, Mark & Luke so much different from John? These are but a couple of the good questions that you might have and which just might be addressed in our Bible Exploration Class, on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. Email office@stlukessf.org for instructions on how to join. 


This Bible Exploration Class is so named because everyone has ideas and insights to share as we learn together. To begin with, we’ll use the Revised Common Lectionary ( www.lectionarypage.net ). We’ll be studying/exploring the readings for the following Sunday. There’ll be some easy lectionary tools to guide us along the way and other online resources suggested to help us make the most of this weekly, one-hour class. 

Julian’s Guild Healing Group


“All shall be well, all manner of things shall be well” 

—St. Julian of Norwich


Julian’s Guild, St. Luke’s healing group, is now it’s 25th year. Named after St. Julian of Norwich, the group brings healing prayer and touch to whoever wishes to receive them, on behalf of themselves or another, on the 3rd Sunday of every month during the 10 a.m. worship service in the Trinity Chapel (pictured) at St. Luke’s Church. 


Members of this group also attend St. Luke’s Wednesday 7:30 a.m. worship service, where all participate in the healing prayers, followed by coffee and fellowship at The Crepe House on Polk St.


Our Stained-Glass Windows

St. Luke's has magnificent, world-class examples of stained- glass windows that are among the finest of their kind.  Many were manufactured and installed as far back as 1916.  Windows of the period are full of feeling and images of worship and the divine. 


Come, see and enjoy a spiritual worship experience that is significantly enhanced by the beauty and tranquility of St. Luke's sanctuary.
