worship services

The basis for our worship is the Book of Common Prayer, our common liturgical heritage with Anglicans across the world (all churches descended from the Church of England). 

We are rooted in tradition but celebrate the richness and diversity of the Communion by incorporating newer liturgies from around the world. Music and hymnody represent the best of the Anglican choral tradition.

Preaching at St. Luke's

music at St. Luke's

Choral music is a defining ministry and gift at St. Luke’s. The choir sings each week at our 10 a.m. service, as well as for special services such as Lessons & Carols, memorial services, and holy days. 

Guest instrumentalists, choirs, and vocalists regularly join in our worship. Whether you are an enthusiastic listener, a robust hymn singer, or a lover of instrumental and choral music, our hope is that you will celebrate God in a new way through what you hear, see and experience each week with us. 

AEolian-Skinner Opus 1350

Our magnificent organ is a keystone of great music at St. Luke's. St. Luke’s first contracted with Aeolian-Skinner in 1958 and the organ installation was completed in 1960. 

The organ has three manuals, five divisions, 60 ranks and slightly more than 3,400 pipes. Additions to the original 1958 design came in two periods. In 1976 a striking set of Trompette-en-Chamade pipes was added and can be seen along the west wall of the Nave. Also added was a Zimbelstern, and a tremolo to lend a romantic quality to the flute pipes of two of the divisions. In the 1990s a solid state action added 32 levels of combination piston memory, some of the pipes were revoiced, and the casework was redone to create the beautiful façade on the south wall. The organ's 3,400 pipes result in a "cathedral sound" unusual for a parish church on the West Coast. A complete stoplist is here.

Stained Glass Windows

St. Luke's has magnificent examples of stained glass. The altar window of the Resurrection was installed in 1911. The stained-glass windows on the north and south walls of the nave depict the Virgin Mary, various Saints, and Biblical scenes. Six stained-glass windows commissioned in 1919 commemorate St. Luke's involvement with the American relief effort for the French wounded in World War I.
