One of our customs at St. George is to read the necrology (a list of those who have died) of members of St. George who have died since last All Saints’ Day. We also offer the opportunity to have prayers at the altar for all those in our lives we wish to remember. If you would like to recognize a loved one who has gone into the nearer presence of God, please email the name to Marilynne Herbster at firstname.lastname@example.org this week. If your loved one was a member of the St. George and died since last All Saints’ Day, we will already have that name.

I am Kim Fergerson, RN MSW, and I am the new Nursery Coordinator.
Many of you may know me as “Nurse Kim,” after being the St George school nurse for many years. For those who do not, my clinical nursing background was in Labor and Delivery/ Newborn nursery. I have been in Case Management the last few years, mostly in hospitals. I still cover an occasional weekend shift at Methodist Hospital. I am currently employed as a Patient Educator with Humana, providing post hospitalization education to their Medicare Advantage population, mostly geriatric members. I also love working with babies and toddlers, so my Sundays in the nursery provide me a nice balance.
I have been married to Jeff for 18 years. He is also in healthcare, employed as a perfusionist, a very specialized field. He runs the “heart-lung” machine during open heart surgery, heart transplants, and for patients on ECMO. He has loved his career choice!
My oldest son Casey is 26 and is employed in middle management at HEB, specifically the new curbside pick-up.
My daughter Piper is 17 and a senior at the North East School of the Arts magnet high school. She is hoping to attend college on the east coast next fall and is eager to start on her BFA in Technical Theatre and Sign Language.
My youngest son Jake is 15 years old and a sophomore at Health Careers High School, also a magnet program. His initial college plan was Optometry School, but he is now considering being a History major. He loves museums and documentaries and would love to one day work at the Smithsonian in DC. Both Piper and Casey are St. George graduates! We also have three dogs, Gracie, Coco and Gucci.
In the little free time that I have, I like to read, shop, try new restaurants, go to wine tastings, and watch Texas Tech football. I have worked in the St. George nursery for many years and have loved remaining involved in this community! I’m excited about my new role as the Nursery Coordinator.

The holidays are an especially hard time when grieving the loss of a loved one. The season renews memories, family ties, and traditions. This is often difficult for families because we become painfully aware that our special loved one is no longer present. The pain of the loss is confused with the spirit of the season.
Grief and the Holidays is a workshop designed to help those who are grieving along with their families to better understand the grief process, how it affects us during the holiday, and how we can use this special time to continue to heal.
Please contact Marilynne Herbster, 210-342-4261, ext. 505, if you are interested in attending.
The annual diocesan Altar Guild gathering will be held Saturday, November 10, from 9:00-4:00, at the Bishop Jones Center (111 Torcido Dr., San Antonio, TX 78209).

Workshop topics include “The Seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany”, “Retention and Recruitment of Altar Guild Members,” and “How to Make Your Altar Guild Great.”
