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.


Cinema Para­diso: - 3.45pm for a 4pm start on Sat­urday, 29 May 2021 in the Church Hall, wine at interval.

RSVP required by 23 May 2021 to Brett via or Mob: 0431 133 193.

Should you wish to con­trib­ute to cater­ing, please let Brett know by 23 May.

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 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.


Food for our worms – Food scraps (no dairy, cit­rus or meat) can be left in the buck­et provided.  This is part of our Par­ish envir­on­ment­al initiative.
