“According to your faith be it done to you.”
Dear to Christ the members of St. George,
Christ is in our midst. He is and ever shall be.
August 1st – August 15th we will have the fast of the Dormition of the Theotokos. This feast is called the “Summer Pascha”. The fast is the same like during the great lent, very strict. We are going to have Paraklesis services, please see the bulletin. Also, during August we have the feasts of the Transfiguration (bring fruits) and the Beheading of St. John the Baptist. You don’t need to register to attend the services, just come. August is the last month in the church calendar year.
We are going to have Vespers on Saturdays at 5 PM in August. Everyone is welcome to attend. Confession must be done at the end of Vespers. If you like to have confession, please come on Saturday at 5 PM. All teens are asked to come and help chant.
All altar servers must be at the altar no later than 10:15 AM. No one will be allowed to serve after the Gospel. If we miss the epistle and the Gospel, we must refrain from communion.
“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” In the Church we are all equal in Christ because we were all baptized and put on Christ.
Looking forward to seeing you and praying with you. May our Faith guide us always.
