MISSION STATEMENT

We, the faith-filled community of St. George, nourished by God's Word and His Sacraments and renewed by the Holy Spirit, accept the call to continue the mission of Christ by living in, sharing and transforming our world.



That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus' disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus.....Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angles who announced that he was alive. ....So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them who were saying, "The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!" Luke 24:13-35






St. George Parish welcomes the boys and girls who are meeting Jesus in the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist for the first time on April 30, 2017.


We congratulate our First Communicants! We are filled with joy as they join us at the Lord's table! We pray that their relationship with Jesus will continue to grow, that they will remain close to the sacraments and that the Eucharist will give them the grace to go forth in love to serve all of God's people. As a community of faith, we welcome these children and their families each week to our Eucharistic Celebrations!





FEAST DAY OF ST. GEORGE--APRIL 22, 2017
4:00 PM MASS AND AWARD
RECEPTION FOLLOWING IN THE CAHILL CENTER

Hi, I am honored to be recommended for the St George Award. I have been a parishioner here for 26 years and have 7 children between the ages of 18- 29yrs old. I started volunteering at St George helping my husband, Roy run the Strike It Rich Raffle in 1994, for many years. In an effort to keep my sanity and connect with other women, I started attending the St George Women’s Retreats. These retreats launched my interest in “retreating” and what began with chaperoning open gym for the Junior High Sunday evenings for Marty Folan, evolved into joining the Youth Board with Robbie Anderson and helping to facilitate the Teen Retreats and Teen Mission trips to Harlan Kentucky, Moore Oklahoma, and Cape Girardeau Missouri. I continue to chaperone YM events and help wherever Maggie needs me. Working with our youth is inspiring and helps to keep me young. I worked with our Adult Faith Formation Team to implement the Lenten Day of Reflection in our parish and help to make it happen each year. In 2008 I was asked by Fr Ken to work with Sacred Heart Parish to bring Kingdom Retreats to St George. I continue to be moderator of our Kingdom Retreat Teams. I love working with each new retreat team, and their enthusiasm is contagious.
