DEVOTIONAL SOCIETIES 

While all prayer is important, we believe that praying in community with others can be especially beneficial. At St. Luke’s, there are several groups and ways to grow in faith together.

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

The Order of the Daughters of the King is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of prayer, service, and evangelism. They make a commitment to Jesus to find community and spiritual support from a group of women.

The St. Luke’s chapter is composed of a group of women with varied interests, beliefs, and abilities who study, work, and pray for the spread of God’s Kingdom.  We are a loving, supportive, and welcoming group of women; if you are interested in learning more, please contact us or talk to a Daughter, who can be identified by a small silver fleur-de-lis cross worn habitually.

 

GUILD OF ALL SOULS

The Guild of All Souls was founded in England in 1873, and an American branch was recognized in 1889. Members of the Guild promote the Church’s teaching in regard to the Faithful Departed. Members commit to pray regularly for the dying and for the dead; encourage Christian customs at the time of death, including litanies and the reservation of Eucharist; support and assist with traditional rites of Christian burial and the celebration of requiem Eucharists; and uphold the spiritual significance of the two great doctrines of the Apostle’s Creed: the Communion of Saints and the Resurrection of the Dead.

If you are interested in learning more or in becoming a member of this guild, please contact Fr. Brian.

 

SOCIETY OF MARY

The Society of Mary was founded in England in 1931, and an American branch was recognized in 1962. Members of the Society honor the Blessed Virgin Mother as the Mother of God and bear witness to importance of the Incarnation in Christian life and faith. By imitating the holy life of the Blessed Mother, promoting traditional Marian devotions, and relying on her constant intercession our behalf, members seek to deepen their discipleship and enhance the mission and ministry of the Church.

If you are interested in learning more or in becoming a member of this society, please contact Fr. Brian.

 

CONFRATERNITY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

The Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament was founded in England in 1862, and an American branch was recognized in 1867. Members of the Confraternity strive to honor the presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist through their words and actions and through prayer and teaching. They strive to pray for one another at the Eucharist and to carefully prepare for the Holy Communion, including the observance of the Eucharistic Fast (in accordance with modern custom) and the use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
