St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is located at 435 Peachtree Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30308.
About the Church
Founded in 1864 by the Rev’d Charles Todd Quintard, in the final months of the Civil War, St. Luke’s has enjoyed a proud history of service to Atlanta giving birth to such ministries as the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Canterbury Court, St. Luke’s Community Kitchen – now known as CrossRoads Community Ministries, TACC (the Training & Counseling Center) and most recently the Boyce Ansley School.
The current St. Luke’s was built in 1906 and designed by P. Thornton Marye, derived from late English Gothic church architecture.
The church is known for its fine acoustics and collection of stained glass. The windows are based on the Life of Christ and produced by the Franz Mayer Studios of Germany; Heaton, Butler & Bayne in London and the Willet Studios, Philadelphia. A focal point is the Good Shepherd Mural above the High Altar. Famed muralist, Edwin H. Blashfield, painted the mural in 1913. When unveiled, it was reported to be the finest work of art commissioned for a public building in the City of Atlanta.
About the Organ
The Alston Memorial Pipe Organ was dedicated in October 1963. Made by the Austin Organ Company, with additions by Cornell Zimmer in 2000, it contains eight divisions played from a five-manual console. The swell, choir, solo and positive divisions are located on the right side of the chancel, and great and pedal divisions on the left. The antiphonal division is divided and exposed in the rear of the balcony. The echo division, located at the rear of the nave, comes from an earlier Roosevelt organ of the 1880’s. With nearly five thousand pipes the organ has eighty-five ranks plus a number of digital stops.
