All Invited to St. Luke’s 100th Year Kick Off Celebration



The public is invited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of St. Luke’s of the Mountains Episcopal Church, the stone church, at a kick off event on April 20 at 4 p.m.

The church’s cornerstone was placed on April 20, 1924 after an effort by the community, led by famous artist Seymour Thomas, to bring an Episcopal church to the Crescenta Valley.

For 100 years, the stone church has been the center of La Crescenta where in addition to Episcopal services community meetings are held. Not uncommon are meetings of organizations like the Crescenta Valley Lions Club, CV High School Prom Plus and the CV Chamber of Commerce. The Crescenta Valley Town Council elections are held in the fellowship hall of the church.

All are welcome and invited to join the celebration on Saturday and to take a tour of this historical church.

St. Luke’s of the Mountains Episcopal Church is located at 2563 Foothill Blvd. at the northeast corner of Rosemont Avenue and Foothill Boulevard. The church’s parking lot can be accessed off Cross Street.
