Fr Luke Dingman
Archpriest Father Luke has served as an Orthodox priest in the San Lorenzo Valley since his ordination in 1987, where he lives with his wife, Nancy. He is Assistant Priest at St. Lawrence Orthodox Church in Felton, California. They have two sons and a daughter who is an Orthodox nun at St. John the Forerunner Monastery in Goldendale, Washington.
In the early 80's during his journey to Orthodox Christianity Fr. Luke began his study of Byzantine Iconography and has painted Byzantine-style Icons for churches and individuals throughout the United States, Canada, and internationally. Because of advancing Parkinson’s disease he no longer accepts commissions but, as he is able, is slowly working to fill his own church with holy images. You can read more about Fr. Luke on the blog post here and on his website.
