Sunday16th Octo­ber — St Luke’s Patron­al Fest­iv­al and Con­firm­a­tion Day


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 –The parish’s envir­on­ment­al ini­ti­at­ive, which Fr Jeff intro­duced on his arrival in the par­ish, involves 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.


ST PAUL’S PANTRY needs food, health and clean­ing items: A bas­ket is in the church foy­er for donations.


Lea MacNeil has jam, con­serves, pickles and vari­ous sauces to sell; please email her at to order them from her.  All pro­ceeds go to St Luke’s Parish.
