Long-time parishioner, dedicated volunteer and front-desk receptionist at Saint George, Paula Dettmann needs our help. Paula was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis last June. Since thn, she has suffered some minor strokes, and is now paralyzed from the waist down. She is a fighter and has been working hard in rehab for all these months. Paula’s husband, Craig, hopes to bring her home but a mobility van is needed. There is a GoFundMe Page, supporting Paula in her next steps towards recovery and more information. I urge everyone to visit the page and donate. Saint George always steps up. Let’s do it this time for one of our own! Father Paul
