Welcome to St. Luke

Dear Friends,

As pastor of Saint Luke Church, it’s a privilege to welcome you to our parish website. Technology today gives us this handy tool to learn more about our parish in a way that can be constantly updated.

Our parish actually has its roots back in 1948, when the Archdiocese of Indianapolis purchased land in Meridian Hills on which to build a new parish. Father Paul J. Courtney became our founding pastor. The official canonical establishment of the Parish of Saint Luke is considered September 2, 1961.

From 1961 until the present moment, the Saint Luke story is a story of the goodness of God’s Providence through countless men and women who have made and continue to make Saint Luke Catholic Church and School what it is today: a faith-filled, vibrant, and faithful Catholic Community.

I welcome you to learn more about our parish. I encourage all of us to keep up with the latest through our parish website. But the best way to keep current is through regular attendance at Mass with the worshipping community each weekend.

Our first parish structures were dedicated on October 22, 1961. In his opening letter for the Dedication Day Program in 1961, Father Courtney wrote: Gratitude to God, it seems to me, should be the predominant sentiment that we experience as we dedicate this first building of Saint Luke Parish.

Fifty years later, our founding pastor is still on target. Thank God for our Saint Luke Parish Community: past and present. By God’s grace, we will strive to be God’s Family, loving, serving, and witnessing to Him at the corner of 75th and Illinois for decades to come!

Faithfully in the Providence that so far has not failed us,

Rev. Msgr. Joseph F. Schaedel
