Information from the Marriage Canon Consideration Planning Group -
General Synod has asked dioceses to consider the proposed amendment to the marriage canon. The survey on this matter was intended to be used by the planning group to form the question for table group conversation at synod. We thank all those who responded. The question delegates will consider at synod is:
“What can we do to ensure that we continue to live together as a faith community
in the Diocese of Rupert’s Land beyond General Synod 2019, regardless of what
decision is made on the marriage canon?”
Parishioners are welcome to share their thoughts on this with their delegates, for inclusion in the synod conversations. Each table group will be asked to submit its top three suggestions; responses will be collated and distributed to synod members the following day and form the basis of our response to General Synod.
You may submit your thoughts to our parish’s synod delegates by emailing: <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Our dedicated maintenance person, Edward “Butch” Blowers has retired. To recognize Butch for his many years of faithful service, the parish office will be accepting donations toward a gift of appreciation.
The Winged Ox -

Bible Study -

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.

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.
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.
