“At St. Luke’s we work diligently to be a center of healing. “says the Rev. Luke Fodor, Rector of St. Luke’s. “We take our name from Luke the Patron Saint of Physicians and healing and strive to be a place of healing not only for the Spirit and the mind, but the body.  We are delighted to partner with the Chautauqua Center to provide for the physical care of those in need.  We hope everyone will join us.”
