St. Luke the Evangelist Episcopal Church is located in Houston’s Third Ward. Historically, St Luke is the first Episcopal Church in Houston established for African Americans over 90 years ago. We are nestled within the expanding campus of Texas Southern University and a few blocks from the University of Houston.
While our history shows we were established as an African-American congregation, we are an inclusive community seeking to serve all of God’s children. We do this by spreading the word of GOD through JESUS CHRIST, opening the door of fellowship, celebrating CHRIST through worship, education and music and developing ministries to strengthen of parish community in order reach out and minister to students at Texas Southern University and the University of Houston.
As part of our outreach, St. Luke is host to the Community Music Center of Houston’s Scott Joplin Chamber Orchestra, the Children’s summer String Camp and their summer and winter recitals. Through our Episcopal Church Women (ECW), we provide support to the Manna House Food Pantry. Each year, we hold an annual Wine Festival in our open court yard to raise fundsto support our activities.
St .Luke conforms to the beliefs and values of the Episcopal Church. We are a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, The Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States and of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Yes, this Episcopal Church welcomes YOU!
