icon of Saint LukeThe Saint Luke’s Network is a new initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia to connect health care professionals around the Diocese and beyond, as well as provide health ministry information to clergy, congregations and lay leaders.

This developing network is named for St. Luke, physician and evangelist. Luke (pictured at right in an ancient icon) wrote a Gospel which tells the Good News of Jesus Christ with a particular emphasis on the poor and the outcast.
