Garden Center Visit For September
Fr. Andrew started our visit with a story about the apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus. St. Jude was a prayerful man that people prayed to for help in hopeless and desperate cases. He was Martyred in Persia and his body was moved to Rome where it rests at Peter's Basilica.
Fr. Andrew explained as he held a small notebook, that Jesus is the only One we worship, and not our possessions.
He then gave everyone a notebook and we sang many years for two clients celebrating their birthday this week.
Another treat for the clients was the visit of John. Not a month goes by, that Rusty doesn't request John's company. Rusty was happy.
As always our visit ended with conversation and cake.

Children's Sermon For September
Children Sermons at St. Luke are preached on the first Sunday of the month at the end of the Divine Liturgy. The sermon this month was about St. John the Baptist.
St. John said he was unworthy to tie Jesus' shoes. Jesus wants us to serve him by helping each other. Father tied the shoes of a child as an example.
