notices sunday 6th october 2019


Birth­days for Octo­ber: Stu­art Grigg; Mandy Tib­bey; Ann Petersen; Moya Holle; Lucy Raj; Peter Tre­gil­gas; Ian Myl­chreest; Eddy Kit­tir­at; Lea McNeil; and Angela Bell.

Next Week: Sunday 13th Octo­ber — BBQ Lunch at the rect­ory – All wel­come!!  BYO drink & meat (if saus­ages are not your thing), and a salad or sweet to share. The par­ish will provide bread rolls and con­di­ments.  Eddie Reddy will be our chef. 

Next Week: Sunday 13th Octo­ber — Youth con­ver­sa­tion — After food at BBQ: Fr Jeff invites our ‘older youth’ to a con­ver­sa­tion about top­ics that are on their minds.  It could be faith or life or world events … any­thing.  Have a ques­tion or two to ask and I’ll do my best.   Or maybe just sit and listen. 

Next Week: Sunday 13th Octo­ber — Even­ing Ser­vice is @ 6.00 p.m: It would be great if you can come along and pray with Fr Jeff at this time in a dif­fer­ent, less form­al setting.

Pas­tor­al Care — The long-term pas­tor­al pray­er list and the sick list start again from today.  If you have placed names on these lists in the past and the per­son is still in need of pray­er then simply place their name on the new list near the bookshop.

Food for our little friends — Don’t for­get to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peel­ings, tea leaves and cof­fee grounds for the par­ish worm farms.   (No cit­rus dairy or meat).  Meth­ane comes from rot­ting food scraps put into land­fill.   Accord­ing to sci­ent­ists meth­ane traps up to 100 times more heat in the atmo­sphere than car­bon diox­ide.  Using worms like this reduces meth­ane pro­duc­tion.  So, our mod­est envir­on­ment­al ini­ti­at­ive is actu­ally very powerful.

St Luke’s Patron­al Fest­iv­al - Sunday 20 Octo­ber: It would be great to have a full com­ple­ment on that day.  A patron­al fest­iv­al cel­eb­rates the life of a com­munity and notes and gives thanks for the qual­it­ies of the Pat­ron Saint.  It’s a time to come togeth­er and give thanks for each oth­er and also to think our future togeth­er.  So YOU need to be here to make our cel­eb­ra­tion com­plete.  Please bring a dish to share for lunch to follow.

Sunday 20th of Octo­ber — Reli­gious free­dom in Aus­tralia. Do we already have it?  You are invited to attend this fas­cin­at­ing con­ver­sa­tion between Phil­lip Rud­dock and Andrew West at: St. Paul’s Par­ish Hall, Bur­woodat 2.00 p.m.
