A NOTE FROM THE CHURCH WARDENS:
Last Sunday we were also reminded that the food basket which sits at the entrance to the Chapel each week is there for donations of food for the City Mission Food Bank. Canned, preserved, dried food - (not fresh or frozen), or toiletries such as soap, toothpaste, or toilet-paper are always in demand. Our gifts are delivered to the City Mission by Jim Conolly on a regular basis. Of late, the majority of donations have come from the elderly who take advantage of the weekly shopping trips we offer, with the occasional donation from a kindly parishioner. How about we make a concerted effort in honour of St Francis to fill the basket from among ourselves?
FEAST OF ST LUKE - CELEBRATION EUCHARIST
Thursday 18th October at 7.00pm in the Knox Chapel, 28 Bealey Avenue.
Dessert Supper to follow. All Welcome.
We will celebrate the 159th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of the first St Luke's Church in Manchester Street. The Very Revd Peter Beck will preside and preach at the Eucharist, 7pm in Knox Chapel, with light refreshments to follow. Do mark it in your diary now. Invitations are being extended to folk from St Michael's and the Cathedral so we need a good turnout to host our visitors. Further details will follow.
