About St. Luke's Centre
St. Luke’s Centre participates in the healing ministry of Christ by promoting the health and well being of Roman Catholic clergy, women and men religious, and candidates for ministry in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
We work closely with dioceses and religious congregations to provide individual assessment and evaluation, candidate assessments, outpatient therapy, tailored education and wellness programmes, and conduct research.
We conduct our ministry in accordance with best clinical practice and in harmony with the teachings of the Gospel and the Roman Catholic Church. Our staff operates in compliance with national and international standards for specialized risk assessment and other psychological assessments.
The vision for our work is supporting the spiritual, psychological and physical needs of candidates, priests, and men and women religious serving the Church in the modern world. Our mission is to promote the health and holiness of men and women in ministry.
We exist as a resource to individuals, diocesan officials, bishops, vocation directors, seminary staff, religious congregations and leadership teams. In collaboration, we address the realistic challenges of ministry and personal development in a supportive professional manner.
St. Luke’s Centre is a resource for the Catholic Church in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and beyond.
St. Luke’s Centre was formed in 2005 at the request of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales who were seeking a centre that would provide psychological and spiritual assessment and treatment for Catholic clergy and religious similar to that offered in the United States.
St. Luke’s Centre is a registered charity, with its own board of Trustees. We operate in compliance with national and international standards for specialized risk assessment and other psychological assessments.
St. Luke’s Centre is currently offering remote candidate and clinical assessments due to COVID-19 restrictions.
