Happy Birthday Bob
Long time parishioner, Bob Purvis and entire family, celebrate his 85th birthday!
The choir finished out the year this Sunday by leading us in singing patriotic music. They will take off the rest of the summer and join us in the pews. Thank you for your dedication and hard work to bless us with beautiful music.
Meet Kelly Steele, Summer Intern
Kelly is one of two Columba House summer interns. She grew us in Pittsburg, PA and now lives in Durham, NC as she attends Duke Divinity School. She became an Episcopalian through the Franciscan Way's commitment to the Daily Office and Holy Eucharist in conjunction with life among the poor, unstable, and lonely. She loves the idea of episcopal house churches growing throughout the country to revitalize the Daily Office and Holy Eucharist while reaching unchurched folks who may find themselves also attracted to grassroots movements that are undergirded by a long tradition of deep spirituality. She is inquiring about ordination to the priesthood and hopes to make her internship with the Diocese of Georgia and St. George's a place where her vocation may become a little more clear. She will be with us at St. George's until early August.
While she is here Kelly will serve at the altar on Thursday and Sundays. She will preach and lead Adult Education on some Sundays also. Kelly is interested in getting to know you and invites you to meet with her. Look for her sign up sheet called "Feed the Intern" posted in the Parish Hall and choose a time that will work for you. This meeting could be as easy as a muffin and coffee in a public place or dinner in your home with your family.
She is pleased to be with us and hopes to make many firends here by the end of the summer!
Be sure to sign up on the sheet in the back of the Parish Hall to meet with Kelly.

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+
