St. Luke's, a Church for All Seasons

This Section Taken from the Journal for the Laying of the Cornerstone, 1898

The Occasion of today's celebration, the laying of the cornerstone of the new church of St. Luke, adds another bright page to the history of progress of Catholicity in the Diocese of Brooklyn. This is, indeed, a gala day for the Christian of this garden spot of Greater New York, for it signifies the erection of another temple to the honor and glory of God. But it is, in a special way, a day of unalloyed joy to the priest and people of St. Luke's congregation.

The history of this parish, while neither romantic nor startling is, nevertheless, interesting and may possibly prove instructive.

It had its beginning in the early 1830s when one Samuel Leggett, a well-know philanthropist and financier and a member of the Society of Friends, constructed on the site of the present edifice a church for the use of all denominations. It was known as the Quaker Church, and for a time commanded the esteem and admiration of the few inhabitants of the sparsely settled district.

With the death of its founder, however, it was used jointly by the Methodists and Episcopalians. To Mr. Thomas Gilroy, editor and publisher of the Whitestone Herald, we are indebted for the following extract: "Up to the year 1855, students from Dr. Muhlenberg's College, at College Point, conducted the Episcopal service, but in that year the church was leased from Mr. Leggett's executors by St. George's parish and the Rev. William Short installed as vicar. The old minute book of the Washington Temperance Society, now in the possession of Libertus Fowler, shows that the society met in the basement of the church as early as 1841. 

On October 11, 1866, the executors of the Leggett estate sold it to Bishop Loughlin, of sacred memory, as trustee for the Roman Catholic Church, and it has been dedicated to the service of that church ever since".

The voice of God has been whispering into the pious hearts of the few devout Catholics of this village who, in sunshine and shadow wended their way to St. Michael's, Flushing, to enjoy the benefits of their holy religion: and so, when the message reached them that they were to enjoy the consolations of religion at home, to worship in their own their own hallowed retreat, their joy knew no bounds. Grateful tears gushed from their eyes as they witnessed the never-to-be-forgotten scene of a Catholic missionary - the dispenser of sacred things, the bearer of all blessings, the giver of good tidings in the Gospel, the agent of the Almighty - preceding them in their pious pilgrimage to this historic spot, to perpetuate the story of Bethlehem and to bring the seal, the law and the power of God upon them.
