Vis­ion (2019) tells the story of Hilde­gard von Bin­gen, the 12th cen­tury Bene­dict­ine nun, Chris­ti­an mys­tic and com­poser, ven­er­ated in the Cath­ol­ic and Anglic­an Com­mu­nions.  She was a Doc­tor of the Church who was able to trans­mit her vis­ions to the world.  Accord­ing to Wiki­pe­dia, Pope John Paul II called her “a light to her people and for her time” and said “she con­tin­ues to shine even more brightly today.”


Organ Pipes


Sunday, 5 Septem­ber 2021 at 3pm – Keep and broad­cast the date!

Well-known to Sydney audi­ences, St Luke’s is delighted to wel­come Heath­er Moen-Boyd to per­form an inaug­ur­al recit­al on the Church’s unique 1883 Wordsworth & Maskell Pipe Organ.

From Moz­art to Mendels­sohn, whose works were per­formed at the instrument’s 1884 recit­al, the per­form­ance will also include Samuel Barber’s Adagio to mark Yom Kip­pur and Septem­ber 11, and pas­tor­al bird­song to her­ald the com­ing Spring.

The her­it­age-lis­ted organ, con­sidered power­ful for its size, is a unique example of its kind in Aus­tralia.  This is its inaug­ur­al recit­al, delayed by more than a year due to the pan­dem­ic, fol­low­ing the com­plete res­tor­a­tion of the instru­ment to its ori­gin­al high Vic­tori­an glory.

RSVP:  to Kathy Drum­mond or Brett Dav­ies and watch this space for arrange­ments due to the Cov­id-19 pandemic.

Entry:  $15 ($10 all con­ces­sions), includ­ing pro­gramme note.


Lea MacNeil has jam, con­serves, pickles and vari­ous sauces to sell; please email her at to order them from her.  Don­ald, her hus­band can deliv­er your spe­cif­ic order to the OpShop where it can be paid for.  All pro­ceeds go to St Luke’s Parish.

Points for thought and Discussion

  1. Dav­id had believed that he would build a temple/house for the ark of God in Jer­u­s­alem. But God spoke to Dav­id through Nath­an the proph­et that this was not God’s will.  When has God turned your plans upside down?
  2. Through all that Christ has done we are recon­ciled with Christ and (Eph 2:19) cit­izens with the saints and also mem­bers of the house­hold of God. When do you feel most con­nec­ted with the fam­ily of God and with Jesus himself?
  3. Jesus looked at the crowds and had com­pas­sion on them because they were like sheep without a shep­herd; and he began to teach them many things (Mk 6:34). If you had the oppor­tun­ity what would be the one thing that you would want to teach unchurched people today?
