Lucas and Bush Families Visit St. Luke Parish

Scene from Lucas and Bush Families Visit St. Luke Parish.

On Memorial Day St. Luke Church was paid a visit by the members of the Lucas and Bush families. They were the relatives of the founding members of the Church when it was owned by Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Many had been baptized and married in the building and they wanted to reminisce. They were surprised to see how beautiful the church looked and were pleased that the church was being used instead of being abandoned. They were particularly interested in the old basement and commented on the many dinners they sponsored over the years. Fr. Andrew left an open invitation if they ever want to have their family reunion in the basement.
