*Links:

The church Website has an overhead view of the church in the Photo Gallery, though there's no index to make it easy to find.  The same photo, or a campus map, is apparently intended to appear on the Our Campus page (under Our Church), but doesn't.  There is a page of text about the bells in the Music section (under Ministries).

A former Website maintained by St.Luke's Guild of Change Ringers has disappeared.
