Blessing of the Animals

Saturday 28 September - 16:30 (4:30 pm)

Pets offer us joy, friendship and comfort. They remind us of our opportunity to care for species beyond ourselves. Our Blessing of the Animals service is an opportunity to give thanks for all living creatures. Bring your family, friends and critters to join in the service. Animals should be on a leash or in a crate.

     Volunteers are needed to distribute flyers advertising the event. We also need volunteers to greet people and pets, do the readings, and help with general clean up on the day. Please contact Fr. Paul if you are able to assist.


Request for donations

To honour the memory of Fr. John Wortley, the Worship Committee asks the parish for donations to purchase new red altar hangings. This would be a most fitting tribute to the man. We would have his name and the date embroidered on the back.

     We wish to have the hangings in place for our Patronal Festival, 20 October.

     To donate, please place your cheque in an envelope marked “Altar Hangings Donation” and place in the offering plate. You can also contact the parish office for more information as to other ways you can donate.


Bible Study

Tuesday 24 September, 10:00 in the boardroom.
Integrating the theological and the devotional.
Eight weeks of navigating and understanding the Book of Jeremiah and selected psalms.


Bertha Brant

After many years of being a driving force behind the Delicious Dishes, Bertha is hanging up her apron. Bertha has been at the forefront of helping the finances of the church by catering weddings, funerals, patronal dinners and luncheons, diocesan affairs, and, well, anything which required good cooking and elegant presentation. For simpler ‘after-church luncheons’ we would still get good food to accompany our good fellowship. Bertha has also been instrumental in the planning of the renovated kitchen, sharing with us what works and what doesn’t when modernizing an old and needy cooking space.

     We thank Bertha for all her hard work, organizational skills, and good humour.

     On behalf of the Parish Council and all of us, Thank You.

    Bertha, you are one Delicious Dish!


Request for donation of a freezer

We have an urgent need for a freezer to help store foodstuffs for the Hospitality Drop-in program. Any type of freezer would be most appreciated. It would need to be larger than an apartment-sized type, and can be either vertical or horizontal. If you have an unused freezer, or if you know of a friend, relative, or neighbour that is down-sizing or does not require their freezer, please contact Barbara Calder.


The Winged Ox

Sunday 29 September is the deadline for submissions to the Harvest/Patronal Festival edition. Your reminiscences about St. Luke’s and its people are welcome as this issue is for our Patronal Festival which is on Sunday 20 October.

Faith Talk and Ecumenical Prayer Meeting

Sunday 22 September at 12:15 in the boardroom.

The 39 Articles will be studied and discussed. If you have any questions, contact Giancarlo Zeni. Everyone is welcome!


Hospitality Drop-in

Volunteers are really needed for this parish outreach ministry. Give one to two hours of your time, either weekly, or a couple of times a month to help serve food and hand out toiletries on Tuesday mornings from 07:00 to 09:00.

     It is a rewarding and heart-warming opportunity to work with and become friends with our guests.

     Please contact Barbara Calder.


Sunday Refreshments

Volunteers are needed a couple of times a year to host the coffee time after the 10:30 eucharist by serving some cookies or slices as our parishioners socialize with each other. Please contact Barbara Calder.


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.
