Congratulations to Stephanie Rodgers on receiving Papal Blessing for her 10 years of service as a Commissioned Catechist.


Many Catholics want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word, but they give up because it seems so complicated. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you get the “big picture” by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church. Presenter Jeff Cavins shows you how to read the Bible so that you can actually understand it. Aided by the unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart, which arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order, Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. This eight-session study program includes video presentations that explore all twelve time periods of The Bible Timeline Chart. The Bible Study will be held in March and April 2024 in St Luke’s Parish Woodvale. If you are interested in understanding the Bible, please send us an e-mail with your name and contact details so that we can order your Study Booklets. Fr Stan

Scam Warning! A number of Parish Priests including myself have been impersonated by a scammer, who is sending text messages which are a scam. The content of the message would be something like:

Hello Mary,
This is Fr. Stan Bendkowski.
I’m in a meeting right now, can’t talk on the phone but txt me back when you get this message.
I need you to assist me quickly.

Please do not respond to a message like this.
