Luke 18 is a parish based community for children. Its name comes from the passage of Luke 18: 16- 17 which reads, “and Jesus said to them: Let the children come to me and do not prevent them because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of heaven like a child shall not enter it.”
LUKE 18 SUMMER CAMP
Last Saturday, 25 of us had to embark on an adventure to Bataan. Each of us participated in the first ever Luke Camp. It was an opportunity for all of us to bond and get to know each other…..Read the full story from this week’s Parish Bulletin.
The Weekend is an introduction and discovery into the faith family- the Church. Given by members of the community under the guidance of Adult Leaders and Bridge Builders. The Weekend is open to children, ages 11- 15 years old.
What I learned from my Luke Weekend was that you are always never alone, no matter where you are in the world. Luke 18 taught me that you will always have a faith family that loves and supports you even when you’re going through problems in life. I also learned that God is present and that we can ask him anything.

When my sister had told me that it was a church group, I never thought I would learn so much. I learned that you can be with your family but you can also not really “be” with your family. I also learned that we should be thankful for our blessings because some people don’t have the things we have like a loving family or supportive friends and we should appreciate them, and the most memorable thing I learned when I joined was that we are all ONE big FAMILY.

LUKE 18 WEEKEND
An event very special in the hearts of the members of our Faith Family happened last August 1-3. It was the 63rd Luke 18 Weekend. The Luke weekend is a retreat for 11-15 year olds who want to meet new friends and find a new home in the church. We, the Lukers, have one important goal in mind and that is to spread God’s love.
