Tonight - 5pm Evening Service.
|Ascension Day Celebration at Christ Church St Laurence:
Fr Jeff has been invited to preach at the Ascension Day service at Christ Church St Laurence. This will be held at 6.00 p.m. on Thurs, 13 May.
As happened two years ago, members of St Luke’s Enmore are warmly invited to attend this service to celebrate this important event in the story of Jesus with our brothers and sisters from CCSL.
Fr Daniel added this information to his gracious invitation to us:
There is no need for people to pre-book, but they would simply need to register on arrival. We’re not up to doing refreshments after services, but some of our parish go over to the Great Southern Hotel for a meal after evening Masses. St Luke’s people would be more than welcome.
Another Cautious Step forward: Those home cooked treats that we have enjoyed in previous years at morning tea are now able to return. After carefully examining the current covid-19 restrictions we are now able to be confident that provided home cooks observe good hygiene practices, we can enjoy these treats again with safety. In taking this decision, we must be serious about hygiene.
On Wednesdays after Eucharist and Morning Tea — we will be listening to an audio course entitled The Gospel of Mark 101 - How to read and Understand the Gospel of Action. [The Gospel According to Mark].
It has been put together by Ian Boxall, Associate Professor of New Testament, The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC. This series of talks is very accessible to anyone interested in going deeper into the gospel.
It is not too late to join in.

Film: 1987 Danish film Babette’s Feast, which won the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film in that year.
Synopsis: Beautiful but pious sisters Martine (Birgitte Federspiel) and Philippa (Bodil Kjer) grow to spinsterhood under the wrathful eye of their strict pastor father on the forbidding and desolate coast of Jutland, Denmark, until one day, Philippa’s former suitor sends a Parisian refugee named Babette (Stéphane Audran) to serve as the family cook. Babette’s lavish celebratory banquet tempts the family’s dwindling congregation, who abjure such fleshly pleasures as fine foods and wines.
Lea MacNeil has jam, conserves, pickles and various sauces to sell; please email her at email@example.com 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 Enmore.
