  THIS WEEK’S PARISH NEWS – June 13 – July 18 (**New Items, *Revised Items)

**Our annual Amazing Journey Day Camp was held online this year and was enjoyed by all who attended and helped. Thanks to our campers, volunteers, clergy, and staff for making this journey amazing again this year! Visit the News page of St. Luke’s website to view the end of camp video. 

St. Luke’s Garden Tour Pictures for Next Prescription – So many people have been working in their gardens this year. We are planning to have “Garden Tour” in the next Prescription showing pictures of your gardens. Please send your Garden Tour pictures to [email protected] Questions? Please talk to Sharon McMillan or Barb Prescott.

The Deadline for the Summer issue of St. Luke’s Prescription will be FRIDAY, August 7th – Please drop your submissions into St. Luke’s mailbox, send them by e-mail to St. Luke’s Office ([email protected]), or to Sharon McMillan ([email protected]). We’d love to receive your stories, poems, and photos. We’d like to hear how you were affected by the pandemic. Did it change what you usually do? A lot, not much? In what ways?

**Cleanup in St. Luke’s CemeterySaturday, July 25th, from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. Please drop in any time that morning. The buildings are closed so please bring your own drinking water, gloves, and tools. Jobs to be done include picking up sticks on the graves, weeding, and pulling out the speargrass which is mixed in with the California poppies. Come to spend some time outside physically distancing and help clean up the cemetery. Hope to see you then.

The Design for our 160th Anniversary T-Shirts has been chosen. Thank you to all those who submitted their wonderful creations! Please visit the News page of St. Luke’s website for details.

Thrifty Foods Smile Cards – Thank you to everyone who has been using their Smile Cards. This year’s Thrifty’s Smile Card Fundraiser Program has now started. This year the money will go towards repairing some of our rock walls.

*St. Luke’s Spring Fair Fund – Thank you for continuing to make your regular donations and for your extra donations to the Spring Fair Fund. As of July 5th including the donations from the Plant Sale, we have received $4,231.35 towards the Spring Fair Fund (60% of our way to raising $7,000).  Let’s see if we can make up the $7,000 of income we are missing because we weren't able to hold our Spring Fair this year. If you are making a donation to the Spring Fair Fund, please note this on your envelope or your cheque, or choose Spring Fair Fund when you make a donation online through Canada Helps.

Thank You for your Support for the Ongoing Ministry of St. Luke’s Church by writing a cheque, making a donation online through Canada Helps, and by signing up for ECP. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Please refer to the Donate page for more information.

Your donations can be sent in the mail, dropped off at the parish office, or picked up from your home. To mail a donation to St. Luke’s, please send it to: St. Luke’s Church, 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Rd., Victoria, BC V8P 2M6. If you would like your donation picked up, please call St. Luke’s Office (250-477-6741) to arrange for someone to pick up your donation.

Changes at St. Luke’s Office – Due to COVID-19, and the subsequent closure of our church buildings, Parish Council made the difficult decision to temporarily layoff our parish administrator in the middle of May. Bonnie will continue to receive her employment benefits during this time, and return to work as soon as it is feasible. In her absence, Daniel will be responding to messages left in the office. We hope that Bonnie is able to enjoy her time off from work, and we look forward to having her return in the near future.

While the office is closed, please leave a message on the office phone (250-477-6741) or e-mail ([email protected]) or Daniel’s e-mail ([email protected]). Phone messages and e-mails will be checked and responded to regularly.

Please join us every Sunday on your electronic device (computer, phone, ipad, etc.) to watch our weekly liturgical service which will be posted at the Video Links page of the website and at St. Luke’s Facebook page. You don’t have to be a Facebook member to access this link.

Cancelled: The 160th Anniversary Fundraising Concert that was planned for September has been cancelled. We hope to celebrate 161 years in 2021!
