Communion, also known as Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper, the Eucharist, or the Sacrament of the Altar, “is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ Himself for us Christians to eat and to drink”.Small Catechism
Holy Communion is celebrated at St. Luke’s on the 1st and 3rd weekends of the month, Christmas Day, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Easter (not including our Sunrise Service), and Thanksgiving Day.
If you have not worshipped at our altar before, please visit beforehand with our pastor or one of the elders.
