Mission Statement
We, the faithful of St. Luke the Evangelist parish, are committed to living out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19-20).  We strive to carry out this mission more effectively by seeking to be formed into true disciples through sanctification by prayer and the sacraments, ongoing religious education, and generous service to the poor and vulnerable.

Our History
St. Luke’s Catholic Church is housed in an historic building over 100 years old.  Since its initial construction, the building has always been used as a place of worship, though only since 1962 by a Catholic community. Originally built by Dahlonega’s Presbyterian community in 1899-1900, the structure was also briefly used by the Church of God in 1909.  For over 60 years the Presbyterians maintained the church.  Eventually, however, they outgrew the clapboard sided building and relocated to a new facility nearby.
