Welcome, parishioners, friends and first time visitors to our parish website of Saint Luke the Blessed Surgeon Russian Orthodox Church. We are a growing community of Orthodox Christians located in Coconut Creek, Florida.
Saint Luke the Blessed Surgeon is a local Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) mission parish community. Our Parish seeks to root and share the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith in Broward County in accordance with the doctrine, canons, and worship of the Holy Church. We humbly seek to dedicate our lives to Christ our God through prayer, participation in the sacraments, education, fellowship, and through serving one another and our surrounding community.
We invite you to come, see, and hear for yourself! Our services are primarily in English, though you will hear Russian in some of the hymns and readings. The congregation is vibrant with children and adults of all ages. Many of our parishioners have come from non-Orthodox backgrounds, and we often have visitors.
Following the Sunday Divine Liturgy, you are invited to join us for “coffee hour.” During this time of fellowship you may wish to meet our parish Priest or other members of our parish. Our parish Priest will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have following your visit.
If you need more information or have any questions regarding our mission or Orthodox Christianity, please feel free to contact us.
Sincerely yours in Jesus Christ,
Fr. Demetrio Romeo

The general rule for men and women is to dress appropriately, modestly and respectfully, as before the Living God. Traditionally this has meant that women wear dresses or skirts that fall below the knee, while men wear pants. We ask that you not wear shorts, mini-skirts, tank tops, low-cut or strapless dresses (unless covered by a sweater, etc.). Orthodox women wear scarves on their heads (not hats). Men are asked not to wear head coverings (baseball caps, etc.).
...God comes into our lives when we invite Him with all our being, opening the gates of our heart from the inside. He will not come uninvited... The moment you are willing to give over your whole self to God- surrendering your life, your loved ones, your health, your victories and defeats- He will come to you and help you in ways you never dreamed possible.Fr. Vojislav Dosenovich
