Who We Are

Our Vision

Saint Luke’s is a parish in the Episcopal tradition located in Darien, Connecticut, and committed to the vision of a world transformed by the love of Jesus Christ for all people.

Confident in Our Faith

Founded in 1855 by ten local families meeting in Ira Scofield’s home on the corner of Ring’s End and the Post Road, Saint Luke’s has grown to be one of the largest Episcopal churches in New England. We are hundreds of families, couples, and individuals. Some of us are originally from Fairfield County, while many have moved here from elsewhere. Some grew up Episcopalian, many grew up in other Christian traditions, and some are exploring Christianity for the first time. We are young and old, rich and poor, married, single and divorced, straight and gay, confident in our faith and full of questions. But the thing we share is a love of Jesus, and a desire to grow in love of God, neighbor, and self.

We are a parish of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT), which includes nearly 54,000 Christians in 168 parishes and worshiping communities across our state. ECCT is one diocese within The Episcopal Church, which includes nearly two million Episcopalians in 110 dioceses across the United States and in 16 other countries. The Episcopal Church is part of a global fellowship of churches known as the Anglican Communion, which all trace their histories back to the Church of England and unite in mission around the Archbishop of Canterbury.  As Anglicans, we are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.

Saint Luke’s continues its witness and mission on the corner of Ring’s End and the Post Road, now with a campus spread over seven acres. We are blessed to share our home with two campus partners, the Saint Luke’s Parish School and Person-to-Person.

A world transformed by the love of Jesus Christ for all people.

Living together as disciples of Christ, we seek to:

Grow personally in faith,
acknowledging our imperfection and need of grace;

Build an accepting and transforming community,
extending God’s unconditional welcome to all;

Work alongside our neighbors,
forming partnerships to serve the world.

Let it begin with me.

Grow in love of God.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Serve the world in Christ’s name.

Our History

Founded in 1855, Saint Luke’s has grown and changed alongside our wider Darien community. While our roots and traditions are important, what matters most is our commitment to serving our neighbors and sharing the love of Jesus for all.

Our Campus

Spread over seven acres, the Saint Luke’s campus includes the Church and Chapel, Education Building, Anderson Youth and Community Center, Parish Offices, Franklin House, Columbarium, outdoor labyrinth, community garden, and three residences for clergy and staff.
