WELCOME TO ST. GEORGE PARISH

First Annual St. George School and Parish Breakfast

Dear St. George Parishioners,

Prepare ye the way of the Lord! We have two wonderful parish/school celebrations to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Sunday, December 14th is the first, annual St George School and Parish breakfast following both Masses in the school hall. The 10:30 Mass will be a special Family Mass with host families from the school. Up at school, The Knights of Columbus will be serving a pancake, eggs and sausage breakfast, and the 8th grade families will provide “arroz caldo” (traditional Filipino chicken w/rice porridge).  There will be sweet treats for sale, arts and crafts, Christmas caroling and a Santa station. Let us come together and celebrate the birth of our savior as one community, one family of families.

In addition, Mrs. Rogel, Mr. Higa and the students in preschool -8th grade are singing and practicing instrumentals for our upcoming Advent Concert on Thursday, December 18, at 6:30PM in the church.  All are welcome to come join the festivities and raise your voices in joy!

We have many blessings as a parish and school community.  We are one, holy, family! May your advent be filled with peace in joy as we await the coming of our Lord.

School will be closed for Christmas vacation from Noon on December 18 through January 4th.

On behalf of all of us at school, Merry, Merry Christmas!

STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE

It is at this time of year, that we are asked to think about out ‘Stewardship’ of all those gifts that God has placed in our trust, not just how we are taking care of those gifts. Including with our parish. This future ‘focus’ on Parish Stewardship (over the coming weeks) asks us to consider – are we’ returning to the Lord’ through the Lord’s instrument on earth for the building up the kingdom, the church, a proper portion of the gifts God has placed in our care . Next Sunday we will be hearing from one of ur parishioners who will share with us a ‘Witness Presentation’ – their story of how GOD has blessed them, their gratefulness, and how they are sharing those blessings.
