It was a joy and a blessing for 27 of us to gather on the grounds of the Dominican College to share in a Eucharist this past Sunday! Click here to read the homily Rev. Victoria preached.
The next Outdoor Worship will take place on Sunday, July 25th, 2021 at 4 p.m.. Please register for that here.
Hope to see you there!
A Service of the Word with Lectio Divina
We will continue to meet on Zoom on Wednesdays 11 a.m. through the month of July.
All are welcome at this virtual gathering, where we reflect on the Gospel passage for the coming Sunday with the questions "What word or phrase stands out for you?" What speaks to you in the passage?" "What meaning had you not perceived before?" "What is the Gospel asking you to do today?" guiding us, and share in a liturgy of the word.

Thank you parishioners for your generous contribution of items for this auction, and heartfelt thanks to the Auction Team (Susan Reid, Helen Cathcart and Sally Griffin) for all your efforts!

Widening Our Welcome at St. Luke's
As mentioned last week, a Widening Our Welcome Task Team has been formed. The timeline for this group’s work is July 2021 to December 2021. The focus will include: working on being consistently and explicitly welcoming to the GLBTQ2+ community, looking at how St. Luke’s signals our welcome, and building and supporting our GLBTQ2+ community internally. The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021. Please feel free to be in touch with Anne Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
St. Luke's Storytelling and Social Time
For the month of July, you're invited to keep up the Storytelling Time connection during Rev. Victoria's drop in office hours from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Many thanks to Anne and Helen for their efforts around Storytelling Time. This space for sharing, and the connections made on a Thursday afternoon have been a tremendous blessing during these pandemic days. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who shared stories and to those who listened.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
