ABM Donations – It would be helpful if any direct transfers made to ABM are identified with our St Luke’s Parish identity No. 10258 in the description. This means your donation will be recognised as coming from our parish.
Food for our worms –Worm farms are one way to reduce greenhouse gasses such as CO2 and methane from being produced as food scraps decompose in landfill. The parish’s environmental initiative, which Fr Jeff introduced on his arrival in the parish, involved encouraging parishioners to consider acquiring their own worm farm or bringing food scraps (not meat, dairy or onions) to the rectory for the several worm farms located there or for composting. This is still happening, and you are welcome to contribute to this effort.
