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 is the outward sign of our adoption into God's family. St. Luke's welcomes all seeking the sacraments of baptism, confirmation (adult affirmation of faith for those baptized as children), reception (transfer into the Episcopal Church from another denomination), and reaffirmation (a renewal of commitment for adults). It would be our joy to welcome you or your child into the church. 


St. Luke's is delighted to work with members who desire to ground their relationship in our community of faith by celebrating a wedding in our beautiful sanctuary. 

Funeral & Memorial Services

Times of loss and transition raise profound questions about faith. St. Luke's is here to walk with you through this time and help create a service of celebration and remembrance for your loved one.

Please contact the office at 1-415-673-7327 to talk with a clergy member about scheduling a baptism, wedding, 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 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. Each week we study the readings appointed for the coming Sunday in the Revised Common Lectionary. Leaders provide tools each week to guide us along the way 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

St. Luke's healing ministry is named for St. Julian of Norwich, a 15th century English mystic, and one of the first women theologians whose writings have been preserved. Julian's Guild 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. 

The guild also sponsors St. Luke’s Wednesday 8:30 a.m. worship service, where all participate in the healing prayers. This service alternates between virtual and in-person meetings. Email office@stlukessf.org for instructions on how to attend.
