Gospel Reading for Sunday, August 24th
Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven...
CASTELLO, Giovanni Battista

Welcome our new Deacon this Sunday
Bishop Benhase has assigned The Reverend Deacon Jamie Maury to Saint George’s as “Deacon in Training” until his ordination to the priesthood in late winter or early spring. Deacon Maury was ordained in May of this year. His first Sunday will be August 24th.
The Reverend Deacon Jamie Maury is a recent MDIV graduate of Yale-Berkeley Divinity School. He was ordained Transitional Deacon May 31st at St. Paul's Savannah. He is a cradle Episcopalian, former junior and senior warden, LEM, acolyte, and organist. Jamie is also a twenty year Army Vietnam veteran, Ph.D. Clinical Social Worker, and university professor. He grew up in coastal south Alabama and has lived in Savannah, GA 25 years with his partner of 36 years, Dan Snyder, an architect. Before they left for Yale three years ago, Jamie & Dan were active members of All Saints' Tybee Island. In addition to his time at St. George's, Jamie will also be working with Emmaus House providing pastoral care and some "street ministry" in Savannah.

USHERS DESIRED. APPLY WITHIN.
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+
