ST. GEORGE RECTORY OFFICE WILL BE
CLOSED ON MONDAY, MAY 25, 2015,
IN OBSERVANCE OF MEMORIAL DAY!






Memorial Day Masses will be celebrated on Monday, May 25, 2015 at 10:30 am at all of our major cemeteries. Please check Catholic New World and local newspapers for the list of major cemeteries, parish cemeteries and celebrants near you. A list of celebrants is available at www.catholiccemeterieschicago.org.






We congratulate our First Communicants. Our hearts are bursting with happiness as they come with us to the Lord's table! May the Body of Christ be with them all Through their lives. We hope to see them often at our Eucharistic Celebration as a parish family.



As a family of faith we congratulate our children who were confirmed on Saturday, April 25, 2015, by Bishop John R. Gorman. Even in retirement Bishop Gorman is ready to help. We hope this sets the tone for our children. While they will be given many cards and gifts wishing them well, the best gift parents, godparents and sponsor could give them is that of a good example. Faith, time shared in reflection, builds a solid foundation for our chldren and will be used every day.

We hope and pray that the gift of the Holy Spirit will guide them and assist them as they continue to develop and deepen their relationship with the Lord and with the Christian community in the years to come. Congratulations!

ONLINE GIVING IS NOW HERE AT ST. GEORGE

From time to time, I ask you all to think about what you can give to the church. It is an important question, which requires us all to reflect on the blessings given to each of us. As you know St. George is able to serve this community only through the support of our parishioners. Our ability to continue
our mission is directly related to the generosity of this congregation. It is also important that we at
St. George learn how to accept your gifts in different ways. Not every donation comes in an envelope on Sunday. We realize that today, more and more of you would prefer to make your contributions through your checking account or credit card. I am happy to write that you now have that choice.

You are NOW able to use GiveCentral. It is a website approved by the archdiocese and our finance council for making contributions electronically. This website is safe, secure, and a paperless way to make your contribution. It was designed specifically for Catholic churches in Chicago and other churches have already found success with it.
