We had a most productive work day. We pruned shrubbs, cleaned off the roof, pulled weeds, and worked on the walking trail and memorial garden areas. St. George's is looking lovely these days.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who knit or crochet "chemo caps" and infant caps. Fr. Parker said a blessing over our latest "fall line"of caps this morning. The caps will be delivered to area hospitals this week.

We would like to have a few more Ushers for Sunday mornings. Please consider this ministry. No pay ~ but plenty of rewards in smiles, hugs, and warm greetings. All that's required is a desire to serve and a smile. Speak to Louise Richards if you are interested.
and after ....
We're so blessed to announce that our own Louise Richards was honored for her ongoing ministry to SAFE Shelter, a local residential facility for battered women, in this Savannah Morning News Faith In Practice feature. Louise, we are so proud of you and SO blessed to have you as a member of St. George's and as a friend.
We have many great kids in our Sunday School program and not enough helpers! Teaching experience is not necessary. If you are able to help out with this important ministry, please contact Debby Thomas.
If you desire to give vestments or church adornments in memory or thanksgiving please speak with Father Parker about what might be needed or appropriate.
If you know of someone in hospital, at home or hospice that needs a visit, prayer or even simply a phone call, please let me know. New privacy regulations sometimes make finding someone in hospital difficult. A room number is always helpful. Don’t assume someone else has told me – call anyway.
Thanks Fr P+
