Holy Week 2019


The Bridegroom Services of Holy Week have an important theme of love, God's desire for loving union with us, and our willingness to respond with love to Him. One way to describe this Holy Season is opportunity for union with Christ on a deeper level. May our journey to Holy Pascha be one that reaches this goal.

We have begin our Holy Week. Please join us for one of the services that remembers different aspects of our Lord's final days leading to His Cross and Glorious Resurrection. This is an opportunity for us to grow in our love for Him who gave His life for the world in His love for us. Thanks be to God for all the mercy and grace He extends to us!

The mission of St. Luke Orthodox Christian Church is to be a beacon of Orthodox Christian spiritual life in Erie, eastern Boulder County, and the northern Denver metropolitan area. We strive together to live our Orthodox Christian Faith in a healthy way that forms Christian character, by participating regularly in the services, prayers, disciplines, and Sacraments of the Holy Orthodox Church. The community of St. Luke calls all people to Christ in His Church. We share the joy of Christ in our lives with those around us, educating people about the truth of this ancient faith in the Holy Trinity. We offer the love of Christ to those in need, in both word and action.

We welcome you to visit our parish to experience and learn about us. Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to its roots that go back to the churches established by the Apostles, in the Holy Land, Greece, and beyond. Our mother Church of Antioch was a major city mentioned in the Bible. The Orthodox Church humbly claims to be the same Church of Christ from those ancient times, the Church in all of the fullness that Christ established.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Fr. David or Fr. Stephan at 303-665-4013 or email one of them at: office@stlukeorthodox.org. They are happy to meet with inquirers. We invite you, also, to join us at one of our services or events listed.
