Director of Office of Worship
Rosa Cristina Garcia-Luense is our Director of Office of Worship. She began in that position on December 31, 2009, but Cristina literally grew up here at St. Luke’s. She attended J. Frank Dobie High School and went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Religion at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania and from there continued her education at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Illinois where she pursued graduate studies in liturgy and cross cultural studies. Previously, Cristina spent three years as the Assistant Director of Liturgy and Music. Immediately before coming to St. Luke’s she worked at Holy Name Retreat Center in Houston as a Pastoral Associate there. Since Cristina grew up here at St. Luke’s she is well formed in our philosophy of Christian Stewardship.
Cristina Garcia-Luense serves as the Director and oversees all of the ministries housed under the Office of Worship, and is responsable for the formation of ministers, scheduling of liturgical celebrations, and oversight of masses & services.
