Outdoor painting planned at St. Luke’s

This summer we will be engaging in a gigantic painting project here at the St. Luke’s campus. We hope to paint the pre-school, the rectory and the church. It is a good time to be doing this because contractors are looking for work in this slow economy. The total price for all three structures is $29,000. So far generous parishioners have contributed approximately $7,000 to the project. If you would like to give to this worthy project, please contact the rectory. Thank you!

Update on Fr. Collins & First Communion

Many parishioners have asked about Father Ray Collins. I'm pleased to report he is doing well after his second hip replacement surgery in March. Following the operation and a rehabilitation period, he is completing his recovery at home. I saw him Monday evening at our Pastoral Studies dinner. He is making steady progress and should be back with us at the end of May.

This weekend we congratulate all our First Communion children. May the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ, feed you throughout your lives. It is my prayer that you are brought often to the table of the Lord by your parents. May all of our lives be truly Eucharistic as we thank your God for his many blessings. A big thank you to Mrs. Pat Grattan, Mrs. Patti Thompson, and all our teachers who prepared the children for this important moment in their lives.
