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.



The Rectory Office will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2017,
in observance of Memorial Day.


God of power and mercy,
you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters. Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom
of justice and peace. We ask this
though Jesus Christ our Lord.
—from Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers





"Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you, just as you gave him authority over all people, so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him. Now this eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ."
John 17:1-2

This year’s program, entitled Tracking Mary: Mysteries & Messages, features the Queen of Heaven Express – a special holy train traveling to the faraway places around the globe visited by Our Blessed Mother: Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe, England and Ireland. Children discover how Mary brings us closer to Jesus through the power of the Rosary. Mysteries and Messages are revealed at each stop. The program focuses on Catholic identity and teaches the Bible from the Catholic perspective. It introduces saints as faith heroes and heroines while encouraging family prayer through a daily Rosary. Children will enjoy skits, activities and games. Sensational, easy-to-make crafts reflect each day's theme. Songs from the Soul Tracks Music CD are lively and the lyrics enrich the overall program.
