St. Luke’s Episcopal is a parish that looks to be thriving in the midst of a mainland continent. The animated sign outside the building (which smacks of Spanish mission architecture to me, similar to the Alamo) shows regular services. The parish has a long, relatively narrow piece of land here, and they’ve screened out some of their neighbors with solid walls and a bit of landscaping — though there’s little around them aside from a high-rise (out of frame) that blares for commercial attention.
The sanctuary itself is also quite pretty — as you can see here, it’s hung in Sarum blue for Advent. There are icons of Saint Luke on the pillars, and the feel is that of a European-style church that has been in use for many years, since perhaps the 1600s or so.
