Welcome

Serving the Upper Valley Since 1916

Location

St. Luke’s is a Christ-centered church in the heart of the upper valley serving La Union, Anthony, Canutillo, Sunland Park, West El Paso, Santa Teresa and the surrounding communities. Come join us in worshiping our Lord and Savior. Everyone is welcome to take part in our services and all baptized Christians are invited to take communion.

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is located in the Mesilla or Upper Valley near La Union, New Mexico and Canutillo, Texas . It began as a mission in the early 1900s to serve the pioneer families for their spiritual guidance. Rev. Henry Easter of St. Clement’s Episcopal Church in El Paso, Texas would make periodic visits to hold services in the Central School building, which is now part of St. Luke’s Sacred Grounds.

As the population of the valley increased, it became necessary to build a small church. The cornerstone was laid in 1916 by the Rev. Hunter “Preacher” Lewis and “the little church in the cotton patch” (as it was fondly called) was consecrated in 1918.

Barn Sales

Our Barn sales are generally on Tuesday mornings during the Spring, Fall, and Winter. The biggest barn sale, with the best selection is during our annual Country Fair, every October. The Barn is a ministry of outreach to the community and supplies gently used items at low cost or no cost to families in need. The Barn strives to improve our community by keeping items out of our landfills and in the hands of those who can use them, helping people RE-USE, RE-PURPOSE and RE-STYLE.

If you have a special need or would like to donate please contact our Rector.
