Return to Mass – 8am Sunday 12 July
What a blessing it is to be back celebrating mass at St Luke’s! Please bear with us, as we navigate our way around the COVID restrictions. As mentioned last week, until COVID restrictions ease, I am suspending Friday’s mass and will continue with Sunday mornings only. Our monthly morning teas will also be postponed until further notice.
Carpark Closure – effective from 30 July 2020
Due to advice from Queensland Health, St Luke’s Green have closed their car park to external visitors until further notice. Parishioners are asked to find street parking or alternative arrangements. Once these restrictions have lifted, we will advise you.
Pre- registration for Mass
COVID restrictions limit us to a maximum of 25 people who can attend mass in the Church building. St Luke’s Green will screen mass live, for a limited number of residents, in their theatre and also in the lounges on Levels 2 and 3. A strict limit on numbers means it is necessary for you to pre-register each week.
Registration – St Luke’s Church
To register your attendance for mass at the Church please phone the parish office on PH 3324 3222 or email the names of those attending, as well as a contact phone number and residential street address to email@example.com .
Registration – St Lukes Green Theatre

Communion & Giving
Thank you for your continued generosity. Collection boxes will be placed at the Church’s side entrance and in the St Luke’s Green Theatre each week. If you would like to give via credit card, please swipe the machine located in the Church foyer. For those who participate in the planned giving program, envelopes will be available for collection this Sunday (see Sarah Martelli at the church entrance), if not collected they will be posted to you next week. If you are interested in giving to the parish’s ministries through direct debit, please contact the parish office on PH 3324 3222 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
I am looking forward to celebrating communion with you all and have arranged for this at both viewing venues.
