Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America
501 Sunset Dr., Abilene, TX 79605

The worship, spirtual life, and community of St. Luke Orthodox Christian Church draw together people from Abilene and outlying towns. What we have in common is our commitment to Jesus Christ in the fullness of His Body, the Church. Our members are from different ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds, but are united in the faith, worship, and life of the Church born at Pentecost by the power of the Holy Spirit. We follow together the path taught by our Lord and the apostles in the Bible and modeled by the saints and martyrs across the centuries. Most of us discovered Orthodox Christianity as adults, and inquirers and visitors are welcome in all our services. We hope that you will worship with us soon!

Announcements from St. Luke

The Idris family are refugees from the Congo and beloved members of St. Luke, but their needs extend beyond what our small community can provide. Maria is a widowed mother attempting to support seven children on her wages from an unskilled job. “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (James 1:27)

Our small parish is the only Orthodox Christian congregation in our city of over 100,000 people. We introduce many college students, Air Force personnel, and area residents to the fullness of the Christian faith. With approximately 40 members and a priest who works full-time outside the parish, St. Luke has a remarkably active liturgical life and a strong sense of community. Meeting even our meagre budget is a struggle, however. Extra expenses arose recently with the renovation of the parish hall after a fire. Several members have moved away from Abilene in the last year, and the parish generously provides benevolence to our refugee family.

Please prayerfully consider making a donation in support of the ministries of St. Luke. PayPal is available on our "Support" page. PayPal not only accepts one-time donations, but recurring contributions are also available from our Support page.  Thank you for your prayers and support.
