Cathedral Church of St. Luke

The Cathedral Church of St. Luke is an Episcopal cathedral in Orlando, Florida, United States. It is the seat of the Diocese of Central Florida.HistoryThe faith community of St. Luke's originated in the home of Francis Eppes (1801–1881), who was the grandson of Thomas Jefferson and an ardent Episcopal churchman and lay reader. Francis Eppes moved from Virginia to Tallahassee in 1826 and then to the sparsely settled town of Orlando in 1869. The Eppes, Shine, Summerlin, Westcott, and Greetham families formed a faithful group which became the nucleus for the formation of St. Luke's Mission, which formally organized in 1881 and achieved parish status in 1884.The General Convention of the Episcopal Church established the Missionary Jurisdiction of South Florida and the Rev. William Crane Gray was elected and consecrated its first bishop. He made his home in Orlando and St. Luke's was designated as the Cathedral Church for South Florida on March 31, 1902. The first cathedral dean was the Rev. Lucien A. Spencer. It was decided that a new cathedral was needed and so the old church was moved in 1922 to make way for a new building. The Boston architectural firm of Frohman, Robb, and Little, who designed the Washington National Cathedral, was chosen to design Orlando's new cathedral.
