Parishioners at St. Luke’s Catholic Church on Lawyers Road celebrated the church’s 25th anniversary last weekend with their annual fall festival, which corresponds with St. Luke’s feast day. The celebration included a ferris wheel, bouncy house, train rides, games and prizes, live music, exotic animals, and a number of food and goods vendors.
The church first gathered 25 years ago in a movie theatre in Matthews and quickly moved to a store in the Mint Hill Festival shopping center. The current building was opened in 1994, and St. Luke’s is making plans to construct a new building. Photo by Amanda Waters
