Holy Pentecost

Pentecost Icon2

This Feast commemorates the Gift of the Holy Spirit to the Holy Apostles in a full manner that empowered them to carry the Good News of Christ to a dark world. They established the Church in many places.

The Feast reveals the Church as the Body of Christ. We are connected to Christ through His Body the Church.

With the Gift of the Holy Spirit, God the Holy Trinity is more fully known. The Sacraments of the Church manifest the Holy Spirit to us, cleansing, comforting, abiding, empowering, guiding, giving gifts for ministry and mission, bringing us life and light. Green is color of Pentecost as the Holy Spirit is life-giving.

This icon of Holy Pentecost is in the ceiling above the solea in the temple of St. Luke Church. This Pentecost marks the 9th anniversary of our new temple, which we entered on Pentecost Sunday 2010. We give thanks to God for His many mercies and blessings!

Come and See....


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.

Holy Land Pilgrimage

Fr. Constantine Nasr will lead a pilgrimage to the Holy Land September 30 - October 10, 2019. Fr. David and Kh. Linda were part of this along with other parishioners from St. Luke Church in 2017, and are happy to answer questions.
Fr. Constantine knows well the Holy Land. He was born in Jerusalem, the son of an Orthodox Christian priest. He is currently involved in charity work in the Holy Land. He retired 7 years ago, after 29 years as pastor of St. Elijah Church, Oklahoma City. See the link for more information.
