As your pastor may I welcome you to our parish family of St. Luke the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church here in Dahlonega. Nestled in the scenic beauty of the North Georgia Mountains with breathtaking views, our parish is in the center of the wine/vineyard corridor of the great state of Georgia. Our parish ministries are spiritually and socially fruitful for all ages, from young people to our golden agers.
We offer Holy Mass everyday, Monday through Friday, Vigil Mass on Saturday evening, and two Masses on Sunday morning. The parish offers 40 hours of Eucharistic Adoration each week with several opportunities for confession on a weekly basis. Bible studies and various adult faith formation programs are also available, in addition to our PSR religious education program. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society flourishes in helping the underprivileged and poor in our immediate area. The Catholic Campus Ministry is an outreach to the many college students that attend the University of North Georgia, and helps to stabilize the faith while, at the same time, interacting with their academic life.
Again, as your pastor, I welcome each and every one of you to our parish, and I look forward to meeting you and your family personally. Finally, I would ask you to search our parish website and find ways to be an active member of our parish family.
Fr. John Matejek
