IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE – LENT 2021
We are in the special time of our Church year called Lent – the season leading up to Holy Week and Easter. It is a time when we aim to undertake acts of prayer, almsgiving (charity) and fasting to help us deepen our relationship with God and our neighbours.
PRAYER: GO DEEPER IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD DURING LENT
During Lent ‘Stations of the Cross’ and Lent Reflections will be held at 7pm on Fridays, starting February 19, via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88178228487
(Note: This is a different Zoom link to that used for Sunday Mass).
If you need us to pray for you, or an intention you have, please see our prayer intention form below.
ALMSGIVING: SUPPORT PROJECT COMPASSION
We are encouraged not to HAVE more but BE more this Lent: https://lent.caritas.org.au/?gclid=CjwKCAiAmrOBBhA0EiwArn3mfMSfJ8K1ELYJsJ8B1hSuw_ZcAxt_VLMGEa0FVXZ6eIzZaOPSdNV3qxoCknsQAvD_BwE

Welcome to St Luke's
Catholic Faith Community
St Luke's is Australia's newest Catholic Church community, located in Marsden Park, western Sydney, within the Diocese of Parramatta.
The community came into being with the appointment of Deacon Tony Hoban as Pastoral Director on January 1, 2018. Supported by his wife, Annette, and a start-up Advisory Group, planning has begun for the life of the new community. The intention is to develop a community of intentional disciples of Jesus Christ, working in collaboration with St Luke's College. Our gathering place for Mass and other events will be at St Luke's Catholic College, Frontier Avenue, Marsden Park. We are looking for people who desire to grow in faith within a supportive community to join us.
We acknowledge that the Darug people were the original custodians of the land on which we operate. We pay our respects to elders past and present, and acknowledge the Aboriginal people for their custodianship of this land.
