THE HOLY SPIRIT
I have just returned from clergy conference,
where I heard a wonderful speaker, the Rev. Dr.
Gordon T. Smith, President of Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta. His multi-part address
and teaching to the combined Lutheran, Anglican and
Episcopal clergy blew me away. I was renewed with a
more affectionate understanding of the tradition from
which I had come in tiny churches in the Philippines
and the forms of worship I saw there. I am truly
grateful for the sense of recovering the past, and balancing the spiritual life I now adhere to with a renewed sense of the Spirit.
You see, when I was a boy in the Methodist Episcopal
Church (before they joined with the Evangelical United Brethren and became the United Methodist
Church) there were some characteristics of spirit-filled
(Pentecostal) worship. We liked the emotional discharge that came from losing control. But I had rejected it for reasons that Dr. Smith clearly articulated:
Worship in the Pentecostal vein could descend quickly into sentimentality that addresses individual emotional needs without transformation. The devotional,
reverent Liturgy of the Anglican tradition, which can
quickly descend into minutiae of detail, can fail to
lead worshippers to transformation also.
Dr. Smith is from the Evangelical tradition. He described the shortcomings of his tradition like this: We
quote verses in competition. The one who quotes the
most verses wins the argument. In case of a tie, the
one who quotes the most New Testament verses wins.
This was another form of scrupulosity with minutiae,
now tied to the Bible rather than to Liturgy, that can
also fail to transform the people it is meant to serve.
Dr. Smith argues that both his Evangelical tradition
and our Liturgical tradition could benefit from some
engagement with the Pentecostal tradition. In the
Pentecostal tradition, the value of emotional
knowledge is upheld, the way we might uphold
knowledge of the Liturgy or the knowledge of
the Bible for Evangelicals. The truth we can recognize with the Pentecostals is that the Holy
Spirit cannot be bound, even while it works
through our tradition of Liturgy or of the Bible to
transform our lives.
The Holy Spirit is often neglected by Anglicans and
Episcopalians, out of fear that we might break the 11th
Commandment: Thou shalt not be inappropriate. Yet
what attracted me to this tradition was a priest who
prayed throughout the liturgy, and maintained that
unarticulated attentiveness to the Spirit all through
the Eucharist.
The source of authenticity in all the traditions is rooted in Prayer: Pray always in the Spirit, be a prayer.
May our prayer be set forth in God’s sight as incense,
the lifting up of our hands as the evening sacrifice.

Rincón del Rector
EL ESPÍRITU SANTO
Acabo de regresar de una conferencia de cleros, donde escuche una linda presentación por parte de un
Reverendo Doctor Gordon T. Smith, Presidente de
Ambrose University en Calagary, Alberta, Canadá.
Sus presentaciones educativas en múltiples partes
frente de clero de las Iglesias Luteranas, Anglicanas y
Episcopales me llevo fuertemente. Fui renovado por
un entendimiento y aprecio de la tradición de cual yo
había convertido en las pequeñas inglesitas en las Filipinas y formas de alabanzas que yo vi ahí. Estoy agradecido por un sentido de haber recuperado el pasado,
un balance de la vida espiritual que me apego con re-

THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
novado sentido del Espíritu.
REPORTE DEL GUARDIÁN MAYOR
Cuando yo era niño en la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal
(antes de su reunión con la Hermandad Unida Evangélica y se convirtieron en La Iglesia Metodista Unidad) había características de alabanzas “en el espíritu” (Pentecostal). En particular, la parte “llamada al
altar”, un descargo emocional que vino de perder
control. Pero yo había rechazado aquella forma por
razones que el Dr. Smith claramente expresó: Alabar
en el sentido Pentecostal puede descender súbitamente a la sentimentalidad que expresa emociones
individuales sin transformación. El sentido devocional, de reverencia Litúrgica en la tradición católica,
que puede descender hacia una escrupulosidad de
detalle que tampoco lleva a la transformación.
Mientras se hace más soleado el clima, y
comienzan a crecer muchas cosas, pienso
de proyectos de mantenimiento y limpieza
primaveral, y por esto quiero enfocar sobre el Grupo de Trabajo de Jueves. Cualquier jueves es probable encontrar entre 10
-14 feligreses dedicados trabajando entre 3-5 horas
para mantener y mejorar la propiedad de San Lucas –
St. Luke’s. Conocido como el “Thursday Crew” hace
construcción, reparación, mantenimiento que sin
ellos costaría miles de dólares. En 2014 el grupo alcanzó 2150 horas de trabajo. El grupo comenzó hace
20 años cuando un grupo de feligreses decidió juntarse para hacer la bodega y garaje para la parroquia.
Ahora hacen mucho más.
Dr. Smith es Evangélico. Nos confesó las fallas de su
tradición así: Competimos con versículos de la Biblia.
El que tiene más apoyo para su posición gana. En
caso de empatar, el que tiene más del Nuevo Testamento gana. Es otra forma de escrupulosidad pero
con la Biblia en vez de la Liturgia como la base. Puede también fallar en la transformación del pueblo.
En la tradición Pentecostal, el valor de sabiduría
emocional se mantiene, semejante a nuestra manera
de mantener la tradición Litúrgica o la manera de los
Evangélicos de mantener el valor de la Biblia. Podemos reconocer con los Pentecostales que el Espíritu
Santo no puede ser sujetado.
Algunos proyectos son semanales. Carl McHargue
inspecciona y repara las bancas y reclinadores. Carl
averigua que estén sujetados bien y funcionando. Jim
Kimura con su equipo levanta la basura de cigarros,
ramos, hojas y abre el drenaje del estacionamiento
para evitar la acumulación de agua. Jane Melhuish
lava todas las toallas, las albas de los acólitos, cubiertos de mesas y otras cosas usadas en la iglesia y en la
hora de café.
Dr. Smith me cayó refrescante y retado a la vez, tanto
por su crítica de las tradiciones que su levantamiento
de la Tercera Persona de la Santa Trinidad. Los Episcopales ignoran, a veces, el Espíritu Santo por miedo
de romper el 11º Mandamiento: No te portas de manera vil. Pero lo que me atrajo a mi tradición fue un
sacerdote de manifestaba la actitud de oración atenta
en el Espíritu por toda la Misa.
Algunos proyectos son menos frecuentes. Otros duran mucho tiempo. Por ejemplo, John McCullum pasó varias semanas cortados el arborvitae que sobrecreció el estacionamiento al oeste. Ahora están en orden. John llevaba la basura a H&H Reciclar, que ahorró $715 en cargos del dompe. Pete Melhuish recompuso el lavamanos del baño de las mujeres, y ahora
está haciendo un mueble con ruedas para tener en
buen orden los cojines que prestamos en las misas.
Jim Chamberlain está instalando el sistema de regadero para los pastos y jardín de enfrente del templo.
La raíz de toda tradición autentica es Oración: Ora
siempre en el Espíritu, sé una oración. Que nuestras
oraciones sean como incienso a la vista de Dios, el
alzar de nuestras manos como el sacrificio vespertino.
Los gastos el Grupo de Trabajo mismo lo recogen.
Cada miembro da $1 por semana para herramientas
o materiales, y también compran donuts para su café.
Si, toman café. Los miembros del equipo le dirán que
ganan satisfacción y se divierten trabajar juntos.

INVITAMOS A COCINERAS
Queremos invitar a las cocineras maravillosas de San
Lucas juntarse con el grupo de cacerolas.
Como muchos saben, SL2 hace arreglos para proveer
comida a familias que pertenecen a la Iglesia en
casos de emergencias. Es esfuerzo puede durar
algunos días o algunas semanas.
Nuestro plan es reunirnos cada trimestre para
cocinar en la iglesia y llenar nuestros congeladores.
La iglesia proveerá contenedores que se pueden usar
con microondas para 2-3 personas. Se llenan durante
la reunión para cocinar de cada trimestre. Si alguien
quiere cocinar en casa y traer una comida, la vamos a
4
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
re-empacar en los contenedores, y tu contenedor
vuelve contigo a la casa. Queremos proveer bolillos
y postres, y serán aceptados dádivas de estos también.
sia depende de las contribuciones de sus miembros
fieles – los presentes, los pasados, y los futuros – para sobrevivir. Pero ¿es esta la única razón que damos?
Nuestra primera reunión para cocinar será el 4 de
mayo, de 1-5 de la tarde. Avíseme por favor si van a
llegar y que van a cocinar. Creo que será
una buena diversión a la vez que servimos a
nuestros feligreses.
Aprendí dar por observar mis padres. No recuerdo
que me dieron dinero para la iglesia, pero tengo la
memoria viva de su ejemplo que me impactó más
que palabras. Fue un domingo, poco después del fin
de la construcción del nuevo edificio de la iglesia. La
iglesia nueva fue completa, pero por alguna razón
los fondos terminaros antes de la compra de sillas
para el salón parroquial. En el coche yendo a casa,
estando yo en la silla atrás entre mis dos hermanos,
mi Papa volteó a mi Mama y dijo, “Ayudemos a la
iglesia adquirir las nuevas sillas.” Nunca me contaros si contribuían par una o el salón entero, pero recuerdo cuán grande fue su gozo en el acto sencillo
de escribir un cheque que fue contagioso. ¡Se alegraron! No éramos ricos, y sin duda el dinero puede
haber sido puesto a servir el bien de la familia o sus
deseos, pero ni modo, con buena voluntad y con gozo dieron para la obra de Dios. ¡Qué mensaje!

EQUIPO EUCARÍSTICO PARA
PENTECOSTÉS
Este año el Domingo de
Pentecostés vamos a
emplear comunión con
un equipo único desde la
historia antigua de la
Parroquia. La Cofradía del Altar lo entregó al Archivo para guardarlo. Cuando se abrió, debido al color
y forma, exclamaron “¡Pentecostés!” En 1987 este
equipo fino de barro fue dado a la Iglesia por algunos miembros en honor de Elsie M. Rawson, la madre de Bill Rawson. Bill fue muy activo en la iglesia
como Coordinador de Escuela Dominica y más. El
equipo viene de Oklahoma, y lleva la marca de
“Frankoma.” Es de alta calidad con el color de rojo
claro, muy difícil de realizar en barro. Honoramos a Cristo este Pentecostés con esos
vasos de barro, así como El hizo hace 2,000
años.
Pat Lawless
¿POR QUÉ DAMOS?
¿Has pensado una vez por qué damos nuestro dinero a la iglesia? Por superficie aparece obvio: damos
porque las actividades día tras día de esta estimada
organización depende de nuestras dádivas de dinero. Si no damos, no tendríamos luz, calefacción, agua
o electricidad porque nadie paga los viles. No habría
vino para comunión, o albas para los ministros del
altar, ni folleto de misa, ni Cura ni personal. La igle-
Yo doy porque, sobre todas las otras razones, me
hace sentir bien. Me alegra.
Si no has experimentado el verdadero gozo de dar,
te lo recomiendo ensayarlo. Si un compromiso anual
al presupuesto es demasiado grande, trata de dar
algo cada semana. Cualquiera cantidad sirve – simplemente comienza a tu propio nivel.
Aún ahora tenemos la red electrónica
para dar. Comienza hoy, y empieza a
sentirte el caluroso afecto en tu corazón.

TECHO DEL SALÓN PARROQUIAL
Se solicita un permiso para construcción en la semana que viene, y después una propuesta de Team
Construcción, y posiblemente otros contratistas. Las
fechas se disponen después de seleccionar un contratista. El proyecto, además de soportar el techo que
está cayendo, incluye nuevas tejas acústicas, mejores
luceros y nuevos ventiladores. Además, se
van a quitar los postes en medio del salón.

CLASES DE INGLÉS
Cuando sale esta revista habremos cumplido 17
clases. La palabra está saliendo. Hemos tenido 8
diferentes estudiantes. Una es de Moldova, otra
asiste a Clark college, y 6 son feligreses. Aceptamos a
todos. Depende del nivel de estudiantes y cantidad
de maestros, dividimos las personas en más que una
clase, o tenemos una clase grande. Esperamos que
están aprendiendo los estudiantes, mientras
nosotros no mejoramos como maestros. Hicimos una
ensalada de fruta en clase cuando una estudiante
5
vino con frutas, y aprendimos al hacerla. Otra clase
fue como abogar por su niño en la escuela, para servicios, con los términos usados. Después de una clase 4
estudiantes fueron al centro de la ciudad a la biblioteca, para hacer su primera visita, y pasar tiempo con
las computadoras, y el área de niños. Adicionalmente
tenemos una gran guardería, y entonces todos están
alegres. El plan es tomar un descanso sobre el verano
y volver con un programa más desarrollada en el
otoño.

SENIOR WARDEN’S REPORT
As the weather warms and things begin to grow I
start to think about spring maintenance projects and
yard work, which is why I’ve chosen to highlight the
Thursday Crew this month. On any given Thursday
morning you’re likely to find 10-14 dedicated parishioners working 3-5 hours to maintain and improve the property at St. Luke’s – San Lucas. The
Thursday Crew, as it’s affectionately called, performs a wide variety of construction, repair and
maintenance tasks that would otherwise cost the
church thousands of dollars. In 2014, the Thursday
Crew logged 2,150 hours of work. The crew began
more than 20 years ago when a group of parishioners decided to get together to build a shed and garage for the Parish. Today they do much more.
Some maintenance projects are performed weekly.
For example, Carl McHargue inspects and repairs
the pews and kneelers every week. Jim Kimura
leads a crew to make sure the parking lot is clear of
cigarette butts, tree branches, fir needles and other
debris, and that all the drains are clean so we never
have an unsightly or flooded parking lot. Jane
Melhuish takes care of washing all the dirty towels
and table clothes used for coffee hour and other parish hall functions.
Some projects are needed less frequently. Other projects may take some time to complete. For example,
John McCullum has spent several weeks trimming
and topping the overgrown arborvitae on the west
side of the church parking lot. John McCullum has
also been taking loads of yard debris to H&H wood

recyclers, saving the church at least $715 in dumpster fees in 2014. Pete Melhuish refurbished the
wood vanity in the upstairs women’s restroom and
is currently working on a project to build a rolling
rack that will hold seat cushions for the pews. Jim
Chamberlain is installing an irrigation system for
the front lawn and flower beds.
The Thursday Crew is self-funded. Each member
contributes $1.00 per week toward equipment and
supplies and a donut fund to be enjoyed at the break
(yes, they do take a break). Members will tell you it
is fun and satisfying work.
The crew is looking for new volunteers. Nearly half
the regular crew is over 80, and some jobs are no
longer feasible, but the work is still needed. Anyone
who is interested in helping the Thursday Crew is
welcome to come any Thursday morning (not necessarily every Thursday
morning) to try it out. No special skill
is required.

WHY DO WE GIVE?
Have you ever thought about why we give our
money to the church? On the surface, it may seem
obvious. We give because the day to day operations
of this wonderful organization depends on our gifts
of cash. If we didn’t give, we would have no light, or
heat or water because the bills would go unpaid.
We’d have no wine for communion or choir robes or
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
hymnals. Or a rector or staff. The church depends
upon the ongoing, faithful contributions of its members—past, present and future—to survive. But is
that the only reason we give?
I learned about giving by watching my parents. I
don’t recall that they ever told me to give money to
the church, but I have a vivid memory of their example that spoke to me more clearly than words. It
was a Sunday morning, shortly after the completion
of construction of our new church building. The
new church was complete, but somehow the funds
had run out before we had chairs for the new fellowship hall. Riding home in the car, with me stuck
in the backseat between my two brothers, as usual,
Dad turned to Mom and said “Let’s help the church
get those new chairs!” They never would tell me if
they contributed to the purchase of one chair or a
whole roomful, but what I do recall is how excited
they were. Their joy and delight from this simple
act of writing out a check was contagious. They
were happy about it! We were not wealthy and no
doubt that money could have been put to good use
toward our family’s needs and wants, but instead
they joyfully and willingly gave it to the work of
God. Wow, what a message.
I give because, above and beyond all other reasons,
it feels good. It makes my heart happy.
If you have not yet experienced the true joy of giving, I encourage you to try it. If an annual commitment to the church budget is too overwhelming,
then try a simple monthly pledge. Any amount will
do—just start where you are. St Luke’s ~ San Lucas
has come into the age of technology and we now
have e-giving. Check this out on our website. You
can pledge a monthly amount to be
charged to your credit card or deducted
from your bank account. Start today,
and begin to enjoy the warm, happy
feeling in your heart.

love.
Last year we had the most amazing group of volunteers to make this valuable experience available to
our children. Anyone interested in helping please let
me know. Even if you can't be there you could help
by giving or lending things to decorate for the
theme. We need white sheets, fabric, table cloths to
make a snowy scene. We also need little tents and
camping stuff for our "base camp".
This is a good time for the Anglo and
Hispanic children to be together and for
adults to get to know each other and
the children.

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT CAMP?
rials to make it happen.”
Mr. Olson interjects, “You’re getting so carried away
that the Parish will soon be floating down the Toutle
River trying to finance it.”
Well, the parishes got together anyway and did an
extraordinary job of many types of fundraising, with
Mr. Olson coming up with the successful idea to
have a “bankruptcy sale”.
The “Camp of the Holy Spirit” had a main lodge
(where the girls stayed), smaller cabins (for the boys
and staff), along with cooking and eating facilities,
and boat docks and swimming areas in the lake. The
three-sided chapel which was used for daily worship, contained a very large bible donated by St.
Anne’s (and now residing in the St. Luke’s Archives
Vault).
One camper remembers seeing the beautiful Mount
St. Helens reflecting in Spirit Lake, and joining an
elite group called the Frozen Ten Club by swimming
ten laps in the cold lake in the morning.
In 1958, the Diocese took over the camp and ran it
for a number of years before selling it prior to 1980.
On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens “blew its top”.
Spirit Lake received the full impact of the lateral
blast from it, burying everything in debris.
It’s July 29, 1955, St. Luke’s Vestry is called together
by Fr. Avery. Clarence Olson, the Treasurer, gives a
familiar picture of parish finances: “We have just
enough revenue to cover just enough expenses. If we
don’t get carried away, I think we can make it
through the year just fine.”
The Camp of the Holy Spirit served its purpose
while it lasted. St. Luke’s and St. Stephens met the
challenge and created a meaningful experience for thousands of young people.
Fr. Orme Kellett speaks, “What are we doing for our
youth in this Parish? What can we do to give them
experiences that will shape their future in the best
manner?”
RETIREMENT GROUP
General Owen Summers replies with a suggestion:
“Well, when I was growing up, going to camp during the summer was where I found myself."
Reno Raymond adds: ““I happen to know that the
YMCA camp up at Spirit Lake has fallen into disrepair. The YMCA might be convinced to sell the camp
to us. I think St. Stephens in Longview would join
us. I estimate it will take $15,000 plus building mate-

Glenwood Place Senior Living (5500 NE
82nd Ave). Next meeting is on

BAPTISM OPPORTUNITY
The next baptism opportunity is Sunday, May 24,
The Day of Pentecost. Please contact Father Jaime no
later than May 10 if you or a family member would
like to be baptized.
NOTES FROM THE MUSIC ROOM
The month of May will allow the musicians at St.
Luke’s – San Lucas a chance to relax a bit and recharge their batteries. The performances of Bach’s St.
John Passion were rewarding for everyone, from Holy
Week worshipers to singers to instrumentalists
alike. The first few bars of that amazing work still
make the hair-on-the-back-of-my-neck to stand up.
The music captures the drama and foreboding of the
Passion story perfectly. After an hour of rousing
choruses, beautiful arias and heartfelt chorales, the
final congregational hymn, “Lord, Let at Last Thine
Angels Come,” is the perfect vehicle to personalize
our final spiritual journey:
“and then from death awaken me,
that these mine eyes with joy may see,
O Son of God, thy glorious face my Savior and my Fount of Grace.”
Many thanks to all who made this experience possible. The playlist in heaven will be well-stocked with
the music of Bach!
The Ensemble, one of Portland’s finest professional vocal
groups, returned to St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas on April
11th for a concert of music by Mozart. This was another lovely program and was well-attended and
10
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
supported by our parish. We look forward to April
16, 2016 when The Ensem ble is scheduled to return
to do yet another Bach masterpiece, the
B minor Mass. It’s not too early to mark your calendars!
Thank you. Any questions, please call Carol Hiltz
(360-597-3094) or Sandra Kimura (360-693-8518).
Trumpeter Tom Barber will be our special guest at
the Jazz Vespers service on
Saturday, May 2nd at 5:50
PM. Joining him will be
drummer, Nick Saumé. You
can ask him about sitting in
with The Beetles in New
York and playing for Jimi
James, the future Jimmy
Hendrix! (I kid you not!)
Beth Lawson will make her
debut as cantor, since our
regular torch-singer, Karyn Slanina, will be off in the
wilds of Alaska. Also, making their debut at Jazz
Vespers will be the St. Luke’s Handbell ringers playing a tune by Duke Ellington, Ring Dem Bells.
This Pentecost
Sunday we will
be served Communion with a
unique set from
our Parish history. The Altar
Guild had relocated it to the Archive Vault recently
for safekeeping. As we unpacked it, several persons
immediately said “Pentecost”! In 1987, this fine
pottery set was given to the Church by several members, in honor of Elsie M. Rawson, mother of Bill
Rawson. Bill was very active in the church, as the
Church School Coordinator, and many other endeavors.
Looking ahead, the next Jazz Vespers is scheduled
for Saturday, June 6th at 5:50 PM when
our special guest will be another jazz
all-star, trombonist John Moak. Bring
friends, family, and neighbors to this
ecumenical service of prayer, meditation, and music.
PENTECOST COMMUNION SET
The set comes from a studio in Oklahoma, and bears
the “maker’s mark” of “Frankoma”. It is of a high
quality, with a brilliant red glaze, a glaze that is very
difficult to create in pottery. We honor Christ on
this Pentecost using pottery vessels, just as He
would have had 2,000 years ago.

SUNDAY ALTAR FLOWERS
In order to respond to the ever changing needs of
inclusion and hospitality at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas,
the procedure for giving Altar flowers has changed.
To streamline the process we will no longer have the
flower chart posted. Instead there will be a form
placed in the Narthex, for you to access. Fill out the
form and place it in the offering plate. You must indicate the date of Sunday you want to sponsor and
what you want to have stated, as well as who you
are. The dedication will cost $35, and will go to insure we have flowers on the Altar.
If you have already signed up on the flower chart
for providing flowers you will have to pick up and
fill out the new form.
Out Into The World
OUTREACH REPORT
Twice a week, Mary Ann and Larry D'Angelo make
a late night run to a local restaurant in Hazel Dell.
They pick up the leftovers of the day for our
outreach program at St
Luke’s ~ San Lucas. We
use the bagels with
lunch meat and cheese
for sandwiches in our
fresh lunches. Some bagels are distributed with
cream cheese only. We
have a vast array of
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
pastries for our guests to choose from too. The rest is
taken to FISH. From February 17th, 2015 to April
2nd, 2015 we have given 980 pounds of breads, bagels and pastries to FISH.
Within the last two weeks, the D'Angelo's have
made an arrangement with a Clark County retailer
to pick up merchandise every week. So far, we have
received men’s long underwear, adult and children's
underwear, athletic attire, parkas and sundries. This
is a wonderful addition to collecting clothes for
those in need. Thank you so much Larry and Mary
Ann!
The HOPE fundraiser at Burgerville was well
attended. We don't know the exact amount yet, but
the tip totaled $386! Thank you to those who attended and helped with serving. This is an important
project and will help homeless school kids in Vancouver. We have Den Mark Wichar to thank for coordinating this with Burgerville.
The Babies In Need baby shower will be Sunday,
May 10th, Mother’s Day. Please bring your baby gifts
to church that Sunday. We will display them all in
the parish hall at coffee hour. Monetary donations
are also accepted.
Lastly, we always need men’s jeans, cargo style
pants, shoes and socks. Thank you for your generous support throughout the year. It’s very rewarding to me when I'm volunteering on Tuesday morning. Recently, a man and a woman, who came in
seeking help, told me, “Thank you for doing this. This is a nice church and what
you are doing is awesome.” Those
comments go right to the heart.

BABIES IN NEED
TENTH ANNUAL SHOWER AT
ST LUKE’S – SAN LUCAS!
Some of our neighbors and newly-delivered moms
face daunting challenges: single-parenthood, very
little income, physical or mental disabilities, alcohol
or drug histories, premature infants, homelessness,
or the breadwinner’s job loss. They have nothing or
11
very little for their new baby.
Babies In Need is always ready with a layette gift
bag of essentials and a car seat to help meet immediate needs. Birth Center Social Workers at PeaceHealth SW and Legacy Salmon Creek hospitals identify moms who need help. When moms receive our
car seat and bag of lovely baby things they know
someone cares and that they are not alone in the
world.
Our layette gift bags contain gowns, pajamas, fleece
sacques, onesies, sweaters, caps, blankets & quilts,
diapers & wipes, a soft, cuddly toy and useful accessories. Many items are new or beautifully handmade. We gladly pass along gently-used items. All
diapers are donated by PeaceHealth Southwest!
Car seats are our big expense. Even with bargainhunting, they cost us $10,000+ last year. We put cash
donations to good use for car seats. Checks may be
made to St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas, memo: Babies In
Need.
As we serve others in our community in Christ’s
name, our own lives are transformed. God is faithful. Thank you for being a strong link in
God’s chain of abundant blessings.
Blessings, Kitty Ash

E S L UPDATE
By the time this newsletter reaches you, we will have
held 17 ESL classes. Slowly the word is getting out.
We have had eight different students attend. One is
a student from Moldova, another also attends ESL at
Clark College and six students are parishioners. We
welcome everyone. Depending on how many teachers and students we have each day and the students'
speaking level, we teach in small groups or one larger class. We hope the students are learning as we
practice being good ESL teachers.
During one class teachers brought in fruit and the
class created a fruit salad and discussed it as they
created it. During another class the topic involved
12
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
was advocating for one's child at school, schools'
special education services and terms used. After another class four students met a teacher at the downtown library for their first time visit there and spent
time at the computers and on the children’s' floor.
In addition, the children think we have a great
nursery to play in so everyone's happy. The plan is
to take an ESL class break over the summer off and
return with a more developed program in the fall.

dish to share. Guests are responsible for providing
their own beverage. Look for the sign-up sheet and

NEW - CASSEROLE GROUP
We would like to invite the great cooks of St. Luke's
~ San Lucas to join the casserole group!
As many of you know, St. Luke's ~ San Lucas arranges for parishioners in emergency situations. The
purpose of the casserole group is to provide meals to
be stored in the freezer at the church to take care of
the first day or two. They would be handed out from
the office or by one of our Priests.
We will meet quarterly and have a cook-in at the
church to fill our shelves.
The church will provide microwaveable containers
for meals to feed 2-3 people. They can be filled at the
cook-in from meals prepared there. If anyone wants
to cook at home and bring a pan of food in, then it
can be re-packaged into the containers and the pan
can go home with the owner. We would also like to
supply rolls and dessert to go with the meals, so
bags of rolls and desserts would be welcomed.
Our first cook-in will occur on May 4th 1 to 5 PM.
Please let me know if you are coming and what you
are bringing to cook. I think we will have a lot of fun
cooking together and we will provide
a great service to our parishioners.

Expenses: Expenses are over yearly budget projections at this point by $4,921, based on year-to-date
