"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.    1 Thes 5:16

We invite you to light a virtual candle in St Luke's Church. Upon entering an Orthodox Church it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend. Candles are lit before icons as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. In practice, when lighting a candle in Church the faithful usually make a small offering to the Church. By lighting a candle and offering a prayer, one enters into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, invisibly warming the soul by the visible light of the candle.

...candles have been lite and prayers offered, estimated.  Click the "About" link below to learn more about the importance of lighting candles and offering prayers, or feel free to make a donation upon lighting a candle.
