Community comes together to complete repairs in time for St. Luke’s feast day

Our church hall committee, has been busily cleaning and painting the exterior of our hall. The work is completed now, in time for the colourful season of autumn and the upcoming celebration of our patron saint’s day.

Between COVID-19, aging church congregations, and busy lives, it is becoming harder as time passes to find volunteers who are willing or able to give time to assist with church work. I am so pleased and thankful for the men and women from our declining congregation, who are mostly seniors, who came out and worked with me and my committee to paint, power wash, repair the cement foundation, and clean up the grounds around the building. It was an act of love and pride for our church and community that this work took place.

I, Florence, would like to thank my committee and volunteers who took time out of their busy lives to work on this project. We are so blessed to have you.
