Welcome to St Luke’s Parish Woodvale! Newcomers to the Parish are invited to place their details in the New Parishioners Book in the foyer of the Church. We welcome in particular Catholics who are coming back to their faith, people interested in becoming Catholic, divorced or separated Catholics, single parent Catholic families and any others who may be feeling isolated or marginalised. NEW! Our new series on the Faith Refresher tab focuses on Catholic beliefs about Mary. This week we deal with the claim often made against Catholicism, that the Blessed Virgin could not have remained a virgin (“ever virgin”) as the Bible talks of “brethren of the Lord” – check it out here.

We, the parish community of St Luke’s, wish to realize more fully God’s Kingdom by deepening our commitment to Jesus and his Church.
We hope to worship together in a spirit of joy and reconciliation.
We pledge to work for justice, and to care for the poor in our midst.
May our parish reflect the comment about the early Christians “See how they love one another.”
Oh God, we pray for your guidance for our Parish Pastoral Team. Fill them with wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Guide them and bring them to unity in their decisions that your will may be done.
We pray for the aged and sick, we pray for our parents and families. We pray for our youth and children. May all grow in trust of you and be strengthened in faith.
May each of us manifest the fruits and gifts of your Holy Spirit as we minister to each other with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control so that our parish may be able to live “our vision” and may the comment on early Christians “see how they love one another” be also said of us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
