Welcome to St. Luke’s Evanston! We are a reverent, yet progressive, faith community located in Evanston, Illinois.  We are committed to creating a deeper sense of belonging with God and embracing others in community.

The people of our parish reflect the diversity of our surrounding urban/suburban community.  We are rich and we are poor.  We are old and we are young.  We are gay and we are straight.  But we share the same mission, to make a Christian witness in society with our hearts and our voices.

Whether you are looking to be engaged, comforted, challenged, renewed, nourished or inspired, there is a place for you at St. Luke’s.
