We hold our annual Craft Fair on our grounds on September 23, 2017 to provide an opportunity for local crafters to display and sell their work and for parishioners and members of the community to purchase lovely hand made treasures. A silent auction, bake sale, and refreshment stand add to the festive atmosphere. Click here for registration information and application.
The Washington International Chorus is a non profit organiation that exists for the sheer enjoyment of music. Singers are committed to performing music that is representative of various countries by tapping into the vast potential of cultural diversity in the Washington DC metropolitan and surrounding areas.
The Washington International Chorus believes that choral music is particularly suitable for demonstrating the cultural richness of the world's peoples and communities.
Transcending mere language, live choral performance allows audiences to experience the beauty, complexity and distinctiveness of living cultural heritage. At the same time, it serves as a reflection of positive cultural encounters and exchange, in which diverse traditions and languages communicate through art and come together through song.

The first St. Luke's Board Game Night was a success! Cloisters were claimed by monks (Carcassone), real estate was bought (Monopoly), players were quite apologetic (Sorry!), cities were connected by rail (Ticket to Ride), bamboo shoots were grown and eaten (Takenoko), patterns were Qwirkled (Qwirkle), and TIE Fighters were destroyed (X-Wing Miniatures). We had so much fun that we are going to make it a regular event, so come on out on the third Friday of every month, 6-10 PM, for more family fun. Bring yourself, your friends, some food to share, and--if you want--your favorite board game.
Kiran Wimberly and the McGraths will present a Celtic Psalms concert at St. Luke’s 4pm Sunday March 6. Performance of psalms set to traditional Irish and Scottish airs. With its delicate harmonies and instrumentation, this music evokes the Celtic landscapes of Ireland and Scotland with sincerity, integrity and tenderness, and offers a healing balm much needed in today’s world.
Christ Walk: A 40 Day Spiritual Fitness Program is a 40-day program about Christian living: mind, body and spirit. Many Christians struggle with health and illness. Many Christians deeply want to connect their spiritual beliefs to their whole life, but need assistance. There is a mind, body and spiritual connection to health. When we do not approach our health holistically and God-centered, then no medicine in the world will get us well. Christ Walk is a holistic program based on Christian teachings that outlines a path for Christian Formation to incorporate mind, body and spiritual activities into practice. This Lent, we will be lead in a six-week Christ Walk program by our very own, Anna Courie (author of the Christ Walk program) for our weekly Lenten discipline. We will gather at 5 pm for a potluck meal, break for worship at 6 pm, and promptly begin our Christ Walk workshops at 6:15. The Lenten Program starts 14 February and runs through Palm Sunday. Childcare will be provided and there will be an opportunity for youth to participate (contact Grace Pratt for details). Christ Walk books will be available for purchase for $12.60. Join us on this Lenten journey as we build healthy Christians: body, mind AND soul. #christwalk

Do you like playing boardgames? Ever heard of Catan, Carcassone, or Viticulture*? Or Monopoly, Sorry, and Battleship? Come on out and enjoy a great family night of boardgaming on January 22 in the Parish Hall from 6-10 PM. Playing games with people is a great way to get to make new friends and strengthen your friendships. You can bring your own games or learn new ones (we'll bring a nice selection), and the fellowship is more important than winning. We'll order pizza and have soft drinks, so if you can let us know that you're coming that will help with the planning. Please email Treb and Anna Courie at email@example.com if you have questions. (*Yes, it's about wine-making!)
