St. Luke’s is a Catholic Community within the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. Originally an Anglo-Catholic parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, we were received and confirmed into the Catholic Church on October 9, 2011 by the Archbishop of Washington, Donald Cardinal Wuerl. We fully uphold the teachings of the Church.
Our liturgy is celebrated according to the newly-approved Book of Divine Worship, which beautifully integrates traditional Book of Common Prayer language and prayers, (Elizabethan English and Anglican prayers), into the liturgy. As such, we are in full communion with the Holy See and fulfill the regular Sunday obligation.
You can watch a short introduction to St Luke’s here.
Immaculate Conception is located in the historic Shaw Community at 8th & N Streets, NW, in downtown Washington, DC, just north of the Washington Convention Center in the Shaw community. The church is two blocks north of the metro stop at Mt. Vernon Square, serviced by the green and yellow lines. Parking can be found along the street.
Mass is celebrated daily at 8:30am according to the Book of Divine Worship, the Ordinariate’s official liturgy.
