About Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, as one of the oldest churches in Grants Pass, has a history of deep faith and traditional liturgy.  For over 120 years our red door has welcomed worshipers into a rich community of faith.

Our mission is : Love, Faith, Reason, Communion.

We reach out in joy and in Christ’s name to one another, to our community, and to the world.

One of the wonderful things about this church is our care for one another. Please help us continue and deepen this by letting the church office know when you are ill, hospitalized or in need of prayer. We especially want to serve you during these times.


We are in a period of transition as we begin the search for a new rector.  We are currently being served by the Reverend Morgan Silbaugh and the Reverend Mary Piper as interim rectors.  Our long time deacon, the Reverend Deacon Joani Bristol, continues her vital role of support and service to the St. Luke’s community. Our parish administrator is Merle Berry.

A note from Reverend Mary Piper

Hi! I’m Mary Piper and am thrilled to be the second half of the M and M team at St. Luke’s, following Fr. Morgan (and he’s a tough act to follow!). I grew up in the Episcopal church and have been ordained for 23 years. I’m a trained hospital and hospice chaplain and have served congregations in Montana, Oregon and SW Florida. My husband Harry is an addicted fly- fisherman so in his retirement we spend half the year in Oregon and half in Matlacha, Florida where I serve two congregations there during the winter.

We have three children, three grandsons, and are parents to many four-legged babies; cats, horses and spoiled dogs.

I love to hike, read, be on the water, laugh and eat chocolate. I’m grateful I’ll get to meet everyone soon.

Blessings!  Mary
