  • An amazing collection of Tiffany stained glass await you at St. Luke's. One of the largest collection of Louis Tiffany's work. A variety of windows and lamps decorate the sanctuary. Guided tours are available or walk in and someone will show you around or watch the video that covers the history of the church and windows. Entry is free of charge, visitors are encouraged to contribute to the free will offering. Every year the congregation puts on an amazing Mardi gras service, with decorations and a jazz band it is a unique service. After which there is Cajun meal served in the fellowship hall. Baked chicken, gumbo, red beans and rice, collard greens, corn bread and pineapple upside down cake.
  • They accept everyone just like a church should. I am not a member but as I walked by the people are very nice and pleasant. I found myself feeding some of the cars meters by their church. Maybe some day I'll become a member.
