The parishioners of St. Luke Cedar Hill held another extremely successful Christmas Bazaar on November 17. We were fortunate to have a bright sunny day, which led to a steady stream of customers, who began lining up before 9:00 am. The Reverend Daniel Fournier led us in a short prayer in the hall before the waiting crowds were welcomed in and by the end of the day, we raised $10,545.00 – a new record!
Parishioners' generous donations make it all possible. Our thanks to all those who sew, knit, craft, bake and preserve items for us to sell. We are very grateful to all our terrific parishioners and their friends and families who came out to help with our bazaar. We really appreciate all the convenors and their helpers who work so hard for St. Luke’s each year.
The delicious lunch was enjoyed by many. Students from Lambrick Park School served the lunches and helped with clean-up. Four young ladies (one from Oak Bay High) and six young men did a wonderful job! Although the price was the same as in previous years, the lunches raised over $250 more than last year. The students had to use cell phones to keep track of the orders!.
As we all get older and, sadly, lose some very dear members, it is wonderful how the family of St. Luke’s pulls together and is able to share our Christian values and joy with the community. Well done, everyone!
