In 2020, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Dallas will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Its history is one of early struggles, determined growth, influence and vigor. More recent history demonstrates decline, now being overtaken by new energy, rejuvenation and resurrection. At its heart St. Luke’s has always had a core of dedicated faithful Christians devoted to the service of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
St. Luke’s is located in one of Dallas’ most prosperous socio-economic residential communities, surrounded by high-end retail shopping and restaurants. It is home to the Park Cities Day School, providing preschool, daycare and infant care, and Boy Scout Troop 577, one of the most active in Dallas. The St. Mark’s School of Texas, one of the state’s highest ranked boys’ college preparatory schools, is within walking distance.
St. Luke’s has embarked upon an exciting and ambitious growth program, centered on building a dynamic children’s choir program that will attract young families to the church. The fulltime Director of Music, in addition to being organist and choirmaster, will offer music classes to Park Cities Day School students, develop a network of area elementary and middle school music teachers, and schedule area children’s choirs to sing at St. Luke’s.
