Register Now for First Communion Classes!

By | Family Ministry | No Comments

We will be holding First Communion classes beginning on February 13 at 9:00 am. Any baptized child in the 1st-5th grades is invited to attend this 3-week class series! The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear and Respond to the Word of God and We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 2), We Celebrate and We are Sent Out (Lesson 3). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.

WHAT:  First Communion Classes

WHO:   Any baptized child in the 1st-5th grades

WHEN:  February 13 & February 27 at 9:00 AM and March 6 at 11:00 AM

WHERE: Parish Hall/Cafeteria

HOW:   Reserve your child’s spot by contacting Happy Wilson at hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org

First Communion will be received on May 22nd at the 10:00 AM worship service

If you have a youth in grades 6th-12th who may be interested in joining, please contact Taylor Brown, Director of Youth Ministries, at tbrown@saintgeorgechurch.org for the calendar.

Council Delegate Election

By | Adult Ministries, Called to Serve | No Comments

The Episcopal Diocese of West Texas will hold its 118th Annual Council in San Marcos on February 24-26, 2022.

St. George, one of the parishes of the Diocese, will be electing delegates (DATE TBD)  to serve at the next three annual Diocesan Council meetings soon. We will be electing two (2) delegates as well as alternate delegates.

      Delegates will join Fr. Ram and Rev. Susan in assembling “to hear ministry reports, conduct the annual business of the Diocese, worship together, participate in workshops, and share fellowship.”

Delegates should be Confirmed Communicants in good standing of St. George.  Those elected by the parish will need to be willing to travel to San Marcos to participate in this in-person meeting.  Each delegate, clergy and lay, will be required to adhere to the Covid-19 guidelines and protocols as set forth by the Diocese of West Texas leadership.  Additionally, delegates may choose to stay in the Council hotel (recommended) at their own expense.

If you have questions, please reach out to Father Ram or Arden McLean, Senior Warden for more information.
