A welcome from Father Emmanuel
Welcome to the website of St Anthony and St Luke’s Parish, which will guide you to us. The Parishioners of St Anthony and St Luke’s Alexandra Hills and Capalaba are a Catholic community whose faith in God is inspired by the love and example of Jesus Christ and his command to “love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). Our actions are guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
St Anthony and St Luke’s Catholic Parish acknowledges the Quandamooka people, the traditional owners who have walked upon and cared for this land for thousands of years. We acknowledge the continued, deep spiritual attachment and relationship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to this country and commit ourselves to the ongoing journey of Reconciliation.
On our website you will find information about our parish, ministries and liturgies. We look forward to welcoming you personally when you come to worship with us. We hope to see you soon.
If you wish to get in touch with us, check the contact us page, which provides contact details and parish office opening hours.
God bless you.
Rev Fr Emmanuel Ayankudy
In the weeks following Christmas, we have been invited to reflect on Jesus’s call, beginning with him being drawn out of the waters of baptism and into his missionary life. This week (in Mark’s Gospel) we see the fishermen – Peter, Andrew, James and John – respond immediately to that same call. They are drawn from the waters by Jesus to become fishers of people.
On this Sunday we reflect on the Baptism of our Lord. During the baptism there was a clear revelation and affirmation of the divine Sonship of Jesus by God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Every follower of Christ grows in to divine sonship by a conscious and con-stant transformation in and through the Holy Spirit.
May I wish you the hope, peace, joy and love of Christmas and all the blessings in the New Year.
