St. Luke the Evangelist Church is a growing Catholic
community located in Slidell, Louisiana, about 35 miles north of New
Orleans. We have a tradition of hospitality, spirituality and community
participation. We are called to extend our spiritual life, along with
community growth, by remaining a haven for people of all ages, attending
to the particular needs of our Catholic family, assisting those experiencing
distress and despair, and by centering ourselves around the Eucharistic

informed of what's going on at St. Luke. Our hope is that by becoming
involved and using our God-given talents, we can can help build the
Body of Christ on Earth.
Luke the Evangelist Church is a Total Stewardship Parish
Since the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception falls on a Sunday this year, the feast is moved to Monday, December 9. However, the day is not a holy day of obligation. Only when the Immaculate Conception falls on a Sunday does this happen; otherwise, it is a holy day of obligation.
Nevertheless, we will add a second Mass for the solemnity, at 7:00 p.m. on December 9. We’ll have the usual 8:45 a.m. Mass that day as well.
