Msgr. John J. Birch Chalice
In Memory of One of Our
The dedication and love of Christ's
message has been evident in the actions and words of each priest who has passed through the doors of St. Luke Church. One
of the founding priests of our church, who is no exception to this, is Monsignor John J. Birch.
His example of
serving our Lord continues to carry on. Monsignor Birch's presence and fond memories are as strong today as his days
here. On May 27, 1984 the marquee outside the rectory was dedicated to Monsignor Birch on the anniversary of his 50 years
in the priesthood.
Also, our parish hall was officially named the Monsignor John J. Birch Memorial Center.
