Bishop Don’s Farewell -
A farewell service and reception is being planned for Bishop Donald Phillips at St. John’s Cathedral (135 Anderson Ave.) on Saturday 10 November from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We are asking that wherever possible parishes (or individuals) let us know how many are coming and if they are able to bring a dessert. We will not be keeping a list of names – this is for planning purposes only to give us some idea of how many people and desserts we can expect. In addition, if anyone has any photos of Bishop Don they would like to share please forward them to the Diocesan office – we will be creating a video of as many of the pictures as we can get.
You can also contribute to a gift for the bishop - donations are now being received for a ‘purse’ (a gift of money). Because the beneficiary is an individual, charitable receipts cannot be issued for your donation.
Contributions can be sent to 935 Nesbitt Bay, Winnipeg, MB R3T 1W6 (marked for Bishop Don’s gift), or call 204.992.4200 to donate with your credit card.
18 November, following the 10:30 eucharist, Delicious Dishes will host a luncheon. The menu will consist of two chicken drumsticks, fries, coleslaw, with a cookie for dessert, tea or coffee.
Price: $10.00 per person. Extra drumsticks will cost $3.00 each.
We hope to see you there for some fabulous food and fellowship!

Jesse Tree -
Get your knitting needles and wool out, find your patterns - start now!
What is it? Jesse trees are a very old Advent tradition, first started in medieval times. The name comes from Jesse who was the father of the great King David. One prophecy in the Bible, in the book of Isaiah, states, "A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit."
A branch is a sign of new life and new beginnings. Jesus was a descendent of King David and Christians believe that Jesus is this new branch.
The first Jesse trees were large carvings, tapestries, or even stained glass windows put in churches that helped illiterate people learn about the Bible from creation to the Christmas Story.
At St. Luke’s we adorn the tree with warm apparel such as mittens, scarves, socks, and toques that are removed just before Christmas and given to the less fortunate.
Your skills and compassion in donating items and placing on the Jesse tree is deeply appreciated by all involved.
Bible Study -
Whale Lounge, Tuesdays at 10:00 am to about 11ish.
We will be reading and discussing the Acts of the Apostles.
We have bibles of all translations, which makes it more interesting. Bring your own bible if you wish.
Children’s Christian Education -
Our parish is seeking trained staff for the positions of Children’s Ministry Coordinator as well as Nursery Attendants. Thanks be to God!
The family ministries at Saint Luke’s are an important aspect of our children’s ministry and as such we seek to provide the best care for our children. The purpose is to ensure that the children who attend the church are introduced to the teachings of Christ in a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment where they can experience the love of God and be spiritually nurtured. God has given everyone the responsibility to care for children and we must develop and maintain a safe, healthy environment for them.
Remuneration will be by honorarium based on the parish budget, and on the individual's preference (monthly or bi-weekly as needed). All applicants will need child abuse registry check and criminal record check before being considered for the position.
Complete job descriptions are available on request the parish office.
Rupert’s Land News -
The diocesan publication Rupert’s Land News is available only via e-mail. Parishioners who do not have access to e-mail may request that the parish print a hard copy which may be picked up at the back of the church nave. Those who are unable to attend church services may contact the parish office and request that the printed Rupert’s Land News issues be forwarded by mail along with our parish’s Winged Ox news magazine which is published four times per year.
