A word of encouragement for today:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable– if anything is excellent or praiseworthy– think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me– put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you

Our Covid Response
The aim of the St Luke’s Covid-9 Response Programme is to coordinate efforts to identify and address critical needs in our local community. To be open to hearing the call from those in need, to be sensitive to the other. Community assistance can be provided very effectively by ensuring that the numerous ministries that operate from St Luke’s are enabled to do so in a safe manner for all in any stages of the Lockdown, while being supported with appropriate and well-managed resources.
