ST. GEORGE SCHOOL

In addition to providing excellent academic programs to educate and prepare our students for higher learning, the hallmark of a Catholic school is its Catholic identity. It is the unique character that sets a Catholic school apart. The experience of faith is taught not only through the formal religous education classes, but through the experience of worshiping God and living that faith in every aspect of the school day.

The symbols of the Catholic faith are clearly evident in Catholic schools and in every classroom. These are ever-present reminders to our students that God is a part of all that we do. Beyond the visible sacraments of our faith, worship and prayer are part of every school day. Students come to know the person of Jesus Christ by learning and living their faith in action through service.





On January 8, 2015, Vicariate V celebrated a Mass welcoming Archbishop Blase Cupich. Seventh
grade student Annie O'Brien had the privilege of representing St. George School in the procession at Mass. Afterwards Annie and her mother
Joanne waited to meet Archbishop Cupich and had their photo taken with him. What an honor!

ONLINE GIVING COMING TO 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 will now be able to use GiveCentral once we register as a parish. 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. We are gathering information about this program and will make it available in the coming weeks. Thank you for your continued support of our ministry through your weekly sacrificial offering. God bless you throughout 2015!
