Father Luke Doyle

Fr. Luke Doyle is a priest of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, ordained on May 29th of this year. He is a beloved son, brother, friend, godfather, (favorite!) uncle, and very much still a saint in training. Father’s journey to the priesthood was anything BUT smooth, yet Jesus was not afraid to call him. Before his ordination, Fr. Luke previously worked as a high school theology teacher, as an RCIA director, and as a Catholic speaker. Fr. Luke has been blessed to form and to share the ABUNDANT LIFE of Christian friendship with disciples ranging from high schoolers to NFL players, and everyone in between! Fr. Luke’s formal education in theology, philosophy, and bioethics comes from Creighton University (Omaha, NE), Cardinal Glennon College (St. Louis, MO), the Augustine Institute (Denver, CO), the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas “the Angelicum” (Rome, Italy), the University of Mary (Bismarck, ND), the National Catholic Bioethics Center (Philadelphia, PA), and Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis, MO. Fr. Luke has a passionate love for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, an obnoxious devotion to St. Luke #bestsaintever and he will shamelessly attempt to convert anyone he meets into a KC sports fan! He currently serves the Archdiocese of Kansas City as an associate pastor at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Parish in Leawood, KS.
