Our Mission Adult Faith Formation advances the mission of the St. George Community by providing forums which deepen relationships with Jesus Christ and one another through learning and sharing our faith.
Meet with other women to discuss spiritual readings, church documents and Scripture on Thursday mornings at 9:30 AM.
Advent is a time of waiting, a time of anticipation and preparation for the coming of Jesus. There are many ways to get ready for Christmas. One way is through a Jesse Tree.
What is a Jesse Tree? It is a tree branch decorated with symbols representing the stories of people in Jesus' family tree. In Isaiah 11:1 we read, "A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots." Jesse was the father of David, Israel's greatest king. And it was from David's lineage that Jesus came. That's where the idea of using a Jesse Tree to celebrate Advent came from. Before a symbol is hung on the branch, a Bible passage or a story from a story Bible is read.

THAT MAN IS YOU! Begins September 16, 2017
Men get together weekly on Saturday mornings to share faith
and ideas on topics that they are interested in pursuing.
After an extended "summer break" that began shortly after Easter, we are about to launch a brand new semester of TMIY. The title for this fall's program is "The Revelation of the Father", and will focus on how we, as Catholic men, can improve relationships within our families while strengthening our faith and spiritual lives.
During the next thirteen weeks we will discover:
* The true dignity of the heart of a father.
* The four types of formation necessary for fathers to properly nurture their children and families.
* The parenting methods inspired by the saints and proven effective with the most difficult children.
* The challenges confronting men in their fatherhood and the means to overcome them.
ATTENTION: ALL WIVES, SISTERS, MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS AND WOMEN WHO CARE: Now is the time to reach out to the men who are important to you and your family. Encourage them to join us on this journey. They won't regret it!
Please mark your calendars for Saturday morning, September 16.
That Man is You! meets on Saturday mornings at 6;30 am for breakfast in O'Connell Hall at St. George School. All adult men, 18 and older, are invited to join us. To learn more about this program, please contact Don Budny at (708) 429-1823; firstname.lastname@example.org or Gary Hendzell at (708) 614-1734; email@example.com.
