Staff Member: Rev. Luke Uebler
Rev. Luke Uebler
“Hello!” It’s the first thing we usually say to one another. In whatever form that greeting takes, it signals that we are first and foremost in relationship with one another and are calling upon each other as fellow human beings. We all know that there have been a lot of changes to our parishes and we’ll continue to have to adjust to the realities before us as we embark on the Road to Renewal together, but before any of that, it’s important that we have the opportunity to say, “hello.” That is and will continue to be my priority: to get to know each other, to be in relationship with each other, and thus to love each other through everything that life throws at us, that we can make it to heaven together.
Naturally then, you would like to know more about your pastor. “Hello!” I am Fr. Luke P. Uebler II, the son of Luke and Pamela Uebler, and have 2 younger siblings. I grew up in Elma, NY and attended Canisius High School graduating in 2008. My first inklings of a calling to the priesthood were perhaps in 6th grade, and so I entered the seminary right out of high school to see if this was the life God was indeed calling me too, and the rest is history. I come to you having served as parochial vicar and later as administrator these past 6 years at Queen of Heaven, West Seneca and St. Mary, Swormville, respectively.
I am an Eagle Scout and look forward to working with our scout troops. I enjoy woodworking and model railroading as a hobby. I play roller hockey each week still, and passionately root for all our hometown teams. I do like video games and my favorite show is Big Bang Theory though I don’t have too much time for these. I am always up for trying new things, but mostly I just enjoy spending quality time with others – let’s go out for breakfast, or dinner, or ice cream, or a walk, or an event or whatever... yes to all! I will be residing at the St. Peter rectory.
