Note From Our Pastor (Parish Bulletin for February 22, 2015)

Greetings,

Jesus tells us to bring our needs in prayer to our heavenly Father. Prayer is our lifeline with God. We know that building a new church takes a lot of dollars, but we must also realize it takes a lot of prayers. Jesus tells us we can't pray just once but that we must pray persistently. Pray, pray, pray.

We are dedicating our efforts to build a new church to the Holy Family.
In a special way, we are asking for the intercession of the Holy Family and of Saint Luke, our patron, to help us pray.

To build a new church, I am asking not only for your financial support in the upcoming capital campaign but also for your spiritual support.

Today I am announcing a new prayer campaign. I am asking all of us to pray Hail Mary's for the intention that we will be able to build a new church at Saint Luke the Evangelist parish that will glorify God. Pray Hail Mary's at church. Pray Hail Mary's at home. Pray Hail Mary's during breaks at school or work. Pray Hail Mary's while driving. Pray Hail Mary's while walking. Pray persistently.

Please keep track of how many Hail Mary's your family prays for the new church. Submit your name and number approximately weekly (or wh enever you can) to the following email address: Prayersforournewchurch @stlukesraleigh.org.

It starts now! We will be keeping track of the numbers, and special thank you’s will be given for certain benchmarks.

This is one way we can keep the spiritual at the forefront as we strive to build a new church. I hope this will be a daily practice for you or your family and a source of unity, peace, and joy for our parish family.

Pray, pray, pray. Pray persistently. Pray with great enthusiasm. Pray with great trust.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 - "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” .

Blessings in Christ,
Fr. Rob
