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.



Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you." Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe." Thomas answered and said to him, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, "Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed." John 20: 26-29





FEAST DAY OF ST. GEORGE--APRIL 22, 2017
4:00 PM MASS AND AWARD
RECEPTION FOLLOWING IN THE CAHILL CENTER

Hi, I am honored to be recommended for the St George Award. I have been a parishioner here for 26 years and have 7 children between the ages of 18- 29yrs old. I started volunteering at St George helping my husband, Roy run the Strike It Rich Raffle in 1994, for many years. In an effort to keep my sanity and connect with other women, I started attending the St George Women’s Retreats. These retreats launched my interest in “retreating” and what began with chaperoning open gym for the Junior High Sunday evenings for Marty Folan, evolved into joining the Youth Board with Robbie Anderson and helping to facilitate the Teen Retreats and Teen Mission trips to Harlan Kentucky, Moore Oklahoma, and Cape Girardeau Missouri. I continue to chaperone YM events and help wherever Maggie needs me. Working with our youth is inspiring and helps to keep me young. I worked with our Adult Faith Formation Team to implement the Lenten Day of Reflection in our parish and help to make it happen each year. In 2008 I was asked by Fr Ken to work with Sacred Heart Parish to bring Kingdom Retreats to St George. I continue to be moderator of our Kingdom Retreat Teams. I love working with each new retreat team, and their enthusiasm is contagious.



DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY
APRIL 23, 2017
PROCESSION AND DEVOTION AFTER 11:30 AM MASS

Join us Sunday, April 23, as we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy after the 11:30 am Mass. Immediately following Mass we will begin with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, will have a procession with the image of Divine Mercy and will pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

On this feast we celebrate God's mercy as Jesus revealed to St. Faustina. He told her, "I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy." (Diary 699) He also stated, "I want to give Myself to souls; I yearn for souls...On the day of My feast, The Feast of Mercy, you will go through the whole world and ring fainting souls to the spring of my Mercy. I shall heal and strengthen them." (Diary 206) I
