About Our Community.
Our church ministries include religious education, including Confirmation, food and clothing for the homeless, our local food pantry, serving dinner to those in need at the Pearl Street Cafe and a prison ministry. We participate in justice and peace activities such as the World Day of Prayer forWomen, the UN World Day of Prayer and Framingham Coming Together. We are active members in the Framingham Interfaith Clergy Association and all association activities.
The Sacraments of Marriage, Reconciliation and Anointing, are available upon request. Contact us about Funerals and grave side services. Baptism preparation is required for parents when children to be baptized are below age seven; for those over age seven, our community supports the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Our ministry team is happy to meet with you individually, and confidentially, to discuss any spiritual or pastoral concerns you may have. Due to Covid-19, precautions are required and in-person visits will be considered on an individual basis.
We invite you to explore our website, learn about our community and how we celebrate God’s word, and pray together. We would love to have you join us on Saturday afternoon when we decide to gather again weekly for our Eucharistic Celebration.
Our community was founded in 2010 by Fr. Don Pachuta, M.D. and members of St. James and St. Jermiah parishes, closed by the Archdiocese of Boston.
The Community of Saint Luke is a small but very vibrant church community. We are active in the Framingham Interfaith Clergy Association and in social justice in our community.
Father Donald Pachuta, M.D. was ordained in 2010 as priest in the Ecumenical Catholic Communion.
Our parishioners range from babies to the mid-eighties. We are diverse in age, sexuality, marital and economic status. We are your neighbors in the Metrowest of Boston.
You will find a community that reaches out to support one another and our neighbors, and a Eucharistic table where everyone is welcome!

About the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC)
The ECC and the Old Catholic Church are today just as the church was in the beginning; holding fast to the beliefs and practices of the early undivided church in whose midst and whose head is Jesus Christ. We stand firmly rooted in the Catholic tradition of the one, holy catholic and apostolic church. The universal councils of the early church are as ever, the foundation of our faith and the understanding of the church. The ECC has adopted the synodal form of governance consisting of laity and clergy, with the majority of delegates from the laity. Bishops are elected, not appointed and have term limits. They remain pastors of their original parishes and they live in their communities among the people.
For more information and history, please visit the ECC website.
With the recent events in our country, the Ecumencial Catholic Communion has released a statement with the National Council of Churches (NCC).
We would love to hear from you!
If you or a family member are interested in receiving sacraments such as Baptism, Confirmation, Matrimony or Anointing, please contact us.
