Views of the Cover, title page and first entries in the ledger of meeting minutes kept from the organization of St. Luke's congregation in 1912 until 1915. After a 'silent period' in recording congregational activities in print, the ledger resumed in 1924 and continued through 1931. The first full entry page begins with statement (in Slovak) about the formation of the new congregation (The Church of St. Luke the Evangelizer on March 17, in the year of our Lord, 1912 in Slavia, FL.). Eight men were in attendance at this inaugural meeting, which followed Sunday worship in one of the settler's homes: Andrew Duda, Joseph Mikler, George Galla, Paul Lukas, John Benko, George Jakubcin, Steve Johman, and John Scerba. They immediately elected leaders from among themselves: Duda as president. Mikler as treasurer and Galla as secretary. The offering that Sunday totaled $2.05.
