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 like that offered in the United States.

St. Luke’s Centre participates in the healing ministry of Christ by promoting the health and wellbeing of Roman Catholic clergy, women and men religious, and candidates for ministry in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

It works closely with dioceses and religious congregations to provide individual assessment and evaluation, candidate assessments, outpatient therapy, tailored education and wellness programmes, and conduct research.

St Luke’s has developed a 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 its work is supporting the spiritual, psychological and physical needs of candidates, priests, and men and women religious serving the Church in the modern world. St Luke’s mission is to promote the health and holiness of men and women in ministry.

It is  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.
