This cemetery has regular care and is in fair shape. The cemetery is situated in the southeast section of the city of Hastings and adjacent to both Gauardian Angels and St. Boniface Catholic Cemeteries. Most of the marked burials are located in the eastern half of this cemetery. There were a few burials in the western half of this cemetery.

This cemetery contains a small Ash Garden in the western section. The ash garden is fenced on three sides and has burial stones for Patricia Ann Hall and Zelda Y. Boenig.

In the 1910 "History of Dakota and Goodhue Counties, Minnesota", by Editor-In-Chief Franklyn Curtiss-Wedge, he wrote: ‘... St. Luke’s Parish Cemetery ... 9 May 1856, Abraham Traux donated five acres of land in the southwest quarter of section 34 to the parish of St. Luke’s for the purpose of a cemetery, to be governed by the church. The first body buried in this cemetery was that of Mrs. Hetherington, in May 1856.’ (page 272)
