In Thanksgiving for 10 Years of Married Life

On Sunday, July 9th, Ann Jarvie and Scott Chamberlain gave thanks for 10 years of married life together.  To celebrate, they renewed their marriage vows in the presence of God and our Sunday congregation.  Then following the service, those present enjoyed a reception featuring yummy strawberry cupcakes.  Congratulations, Ann and Scott!  We wish you every blessing as you begin your second decade together.

A new member of the Body of Christ!

Celebrating the Feast of Pentecost

We welcome Elia Bloomberg Araujo into the Body of Christ

On June 4th Pentecost Sunday – the Feast of the Holy Spirit – the people of St. Luke’s welcomed a new member into the Body of Christ.  Elia Bloomberg Araujo was baptized in the presence of God, his parents, brother and cousin, and the people of St. Luke’s.  Elia began attending St. Luke’s almost three years ago, seeking a community that valued and nurtured the Spirit.  Elia has been on Parish Council, contributed to refreshments after our worship services, and helped prepare and serve our monthly Hospitality Breakfast for those who are hungry in our city.  Recently he has joined the Altar Servers who help in the leadership of our worship.

Welcome Elia!  May God continue to guide and support you on your faith journey.

Local Artisans share their talents in support of St. Luke’s ministry to the Western University community

ArtisansLogoCommunity outreach is an important part of St. Luke’s mission of connecting with our neighbourhood, as well as supporting the religious / spiritual life of the Western University community.

This year was the first of what we hope will be an annual Artisans & High Tea event at St. Luke the Evangelist – Broughdale. Local Artisans showing their wares, people from London and the surrounding area visiting, looking, talking together, and discovering the fellowship and Christian Service of St. Luke the Evangelist – Broughdale.  All in support of our Renew Project which helps fund our community outreach.

The response received was positive by patrons, vendors, and volunteers alike, and deemed a great success.

The Tea Room was a tremendous success, with a variety of finger sandwiches, treats, smiles, and a relaxing, yet elegant, atmosphere.

Many vendors appreciated the organization, the extra help with set-up and clean-up, and the general friendliness of everyone involved.

We, the Renew Committee, and the parishioners of St. Luke’s, enjoyed meeting with the vendors and patrons, learning about them and their works, hearing their thoughts on the event, and sharing some of who we are at St. Luke’s.

The Renew Committee would like to thank everyone who participated, donated and supported this event.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us…

creche

Follow the shining star to the stable.

          See the cattle and the donkey

                   the shepherds and the sheep

                             the wise ones with their gifts.

Receive the blessing of the Babe laid in the manger.

          Then filled with the Love, Joy, and Peace of God,

                   go out and share your blessings

                             with all those you meet.

                                                Amen.


Please join us for worship this Christmas morning at 10:30 am

Lessons and Carols for Christmas – Sunday, December 18th at 10:30 am

img_20161213_183104The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first held on Christmas Eve 1918 at King’s College in Cambridge, England. It was planned by Eric Milner-White, who, at the age of thirty-four, had just been appointed Dean of King’s after experience as an army chaplain which had convinced him that the Church of England needed more imaginative worship. The main theme of the service is the development of the loving purposes of God seen through the windows and words of the Bible.

Over and over, we find ourselves surrounded by words and music that speak to us of God’s wonder, mystery and surprise. Perhaps we will discover ourselves hungry for more. Beneath the predictable commotion of this season we might catch the sense of things so ancient and so new, so intimate and so shattering – that we find ourselves following that star to the birthplace of the shepherd king.

We hope that our offering of words and music may help you enter into the wonderful spirit of preparation which is the Advent Season. May God’s grace prepare you to receive the gift of the Christ child in your heart this Christmas season!

Please join us and bring a friend!

September 1st – Day of prayer and fasting for Creation

20150903_181052We at St. Luke’s invite you to join with people of faith around the world to pray for creation this Thursday, September 1st.  As part of your prayer, consider fasting as a way of moving your prayer to action…whether by restricting your food intake, or reducing your carbon footprint.

The World Day of Prayer for Creation was first proclaimed by the Orthodox Church in 1989.  Since then many other faith groups have joined the call for prayer and fasting, including the Anglican Church of Canada.

At St. Luke’s we will be observing a Season of Creation beginning on Thursday and continuing to October 2.  Join us.  Check out our ‘Coming Up at St. Luke’s’ page or visit The Season of Creation website.
