A Salute To Our Youth

Scene from A Salute To Our Youth.

In many ways this Sunday at St. Luke was a salute to the youth of our parish. With Church School coming to a close for the summer it was a day to recognize the hard work that our students put in during the school year. It was also a time to thank our devoted church school teachers and administor. During the year our choir director spent time teaching the children some hymns. Here we see them singing what they learned.

We at St. Luke Parish are blessed to have such a wonder group of talented and devoted young people. We wish for them health, success in their future endeavors, and many years.

Children's Sermon On The Face Of God

Scene from Children's Sermon On The Face Of God.

In this month's children sermon, Fr. Andrew asked the children what they think God looks like. The children said he has eyes to watch you and a mouth to speak his word and ears to hear you pray and hands to bless you. Fr. Andrew drew a picture of God and explained that he looks like you and me because we are all made in his image. He them asked the children for another name for image. The answer given was: Icon. We are all living icons of God he said.

Scene from Children's Sermon On The Face Of God.

He them explained that we are made in God's image but we have to work to be like God. We learn about being like God from Jesus Christ who is the perfect Icon of God. So we should learn what Jesus said and did and copy him and then we will be like God.

We learned that the 12 years of banquets in Chicago have supported the IOCC to the tune of $1.5 million.The IOCC gives 92% of all donations directly to the needy around the world and the USA. They supplied food and water in the Katrina Hurricane flood relief.

This Sunday St. Luke Parish celebrated Mother's Day. At the end of Liturgy, we sang "Many Years" for all the mothers everywhere. Also we sang "Memory Eternal" for all those mothers who have fallen asleep in the Lord. Father Andrew presented a small gift to all the mothers in attendance. We at St. Luke Parish would like to wish all mothers everywhere a happy, safe, and blessed mother's day and thank them for all that they have done.
