Lectors and Lay Eucharistic Ministers Training

By | Called to Serve, Fellowship | No Comments

All Lectors and Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEM”s) are invited to attend a training session after worship on May 15th (approximate start time 11:20 AM).

During this time we will offer all an opportunity to learn the specifics of each particular ministry and ways that Covid has changed how we do the ministry.

It is also an opportunity for new people to sign up for these ministries.  Whether you are continuing in one or both of these ministries or are new, please click here to tell us you are coming so we can have adequate refreshments and training materials.

Note:  Persons as young as 6th Grade can be trained as a Lector.  Young people 16 and older can serve as a Lay Eucharistic Minister.  It is highly recommended that all  who serve as a Lector or LEM be Confirmed or planning to be Confirmed (or Received).  For questions please contact Fr. Ram, Susan Alwais (LEM’s) or Pam Carter (Lectors).

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.
