Mass of St. Luke

St. Luke the Evangelist was a Greek physician and follower of St. Paul. He is the patron saints of physicians, surgeons, artists,students, and bachelors. As one of the four evangelists, his symbol is an ox or bull. Do you see the small winged bull in the corner of the picture? Take a look at Ascension's ambo, too. The mosaic of Jesus is surrounded by four stone carvings; can you find the bull of St. Luke? Ascension school will celebrate St. Luke at a special 9:30 Mass on Wednesday, October 18 — St. Luke's feast day.
