Lockdown - A poem by Br Richard Kendrick

Lockdown by Fr. Richard Hendrick Yes there is fear. Yes there is isolation. Yes there is panic buying. Yes there is sickness. Yes there is even death. But, They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise You can hear the birds again. They say that after just a few weeks of quiet The sky is no longer thick with fumes But blue and grey and clear. They say that in the streets of Assisi People are singing to each other across the empty squares, keeping their windows open so that those who are alone may hear the sounds of family around them. They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound. Today a young woman I know is busy spreading fliers w

Thursday Night Notes from St Luke's 26 Mar 2020

Dear Parish friends The current situation evolves day by day, and the Anglican Church in this diocese is seeking to play its part in following the government regulations to reduce the spread of the virus and protect our communities.

Services continue at St Luke's

Despite the difficult situations being experienced as a result of the Covid 19 outbreak, services at this point continue at St Luke's as we have a congregation <100. We have implemented some simple changes to ensure hygiene management is improved. The Diocese of Southern Qld has provided recommendations that we have implemented in our services. Most importantly, if you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with anyone who has the virus, please do not attend our services or events. If you are elderly or in a high risk group, consider if you should attend. Ring the office or Rev Timothy if you need any information, assistance or if you would like us to pray for you. We have adopted ch
