We enjoyed beautiful celebrations of the wonder of the Resurrection throughout the parish. Our thanks to all involved in making Holy Week so meaningful.
As a result of the Pastoral Council’s recent day-long planning retreat, we will be initiating some new initiatives for the upcoming year in order to facilitate communication between parishioners and the Council. On the first Sunday of each month, members of the Pastoral Council will be available in the coffee shop after each mass to discuss current happenings and thoughts for our Parish. For those attending the Saturday mass, we plan to hold a similar event starting on March 4th (other Saturday event dates to be determined). We look forward to meeting you! Separately, feel free to reach out to any Pastoral Council member at any time (members listed on the Council's page) with questions or ideas. Our monthly meetings are open to all parishioners and are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 PM in the Parish Center (2nd Floor). Be sure to check back on the Council's webpage for posting of the monthly meeting minutes.

Many Thanks to all who helped at the SACRAMENT OF THE ANOINTING OF THE SICK and the luncheon that followed. Judy White's chicken soup recipe was a big hit! Many thanks to Ann Walsh, Karen and Tess Fuller, and Joan Talbot for their set up and sandwich help. Linda, Gabby, and Jalyssa Ohl came just in time to give us all the added boost of help we needed. Our Connfirmation Candidates worked non-stop and did a great job. They were so kind and took the initiative to see that everyone was comfortable and well fed. The ceremony was lovely and the grace of the Sacrament flowed from the church downstairs to the hall and hopefully beyond - into the lives of all who were anointed with this wonderful sacrament of healing. See more photos of the day here.
Guided by great spirit and planning, Vacation Bible Camp returned to St. George's this summer! Karen and Aaron Fuller, with the help of many eager parishioners, led a week long summer Bible Camp.
