St Luke's Church History
St Luke's was built in 1865 as an Episcopalian Church and mainly served the summer visitors of that communion. It was deconsecrated in 1872 and became a Mechanics' Hall.
It remained as such until 1896 when it was re-consecrated as a Roman Catholic Church.
Prior to that, Mass was said in one of the hotels in Moffat for Catholics, possibly only once a month.
In 1990 the Church was refurbished and restored more or less to what it is now.
In 2001- 2003, more refurbishment was undertaken with quite extensive landscaping.
Moffat is a very busy tourist place and we welcome our many visitors-especially in the summer.
This church and community are part of the Parish of Holy Trinity, Lockerbie.
