About This Service
Offering a combination of inspirational poems, thoughtful prose passages, untraditional prayers, interspersed with complementary music, St. Luke's Reflections Service focuses on spirituality. Drawing on the tradition of evensong, the service recognizes our need for stillness and connection to the soul at the end of the day.

Referencing the seasons, the service acknowledges the liturgical calendar through both the words and the music. The theme, introduced through the words, is given added depth through the music. The gorgeous ambience of the softly lit church adds to contemplative atmosphere that places us in a state of prayer. Reflections provides another way to encounter the Divine. Please come and be a part of this unique experience.
