TODAY IS THE FOREFEAST OF THE ELEVATION OF THE HOLY CROSS Great Vespers for the Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross will be prayed tonight at 6PM.
TOMORROW, MONDAY, 14 SEPT is the Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross. Orthros for the Feast will be prayed at 6:00AM and will include the Elevation of the Holy Cross and blessing of basil for this Feast. The Church holds this sacred day as a strict fast.
COME VENERATE THE HOLY CROSS ON MONDAY EVENING The Church will be open between 5-6PM on Monday evening so those who cannot attend in the morning can come to St. George, venerate the Holy Cross, and take some blessed basil home with them.
WE ENCOURAGE THE PARISH FAMILY TO COME TO CHURCH If your heart longs to be in Church, to worship God and to receive Him in the Holy Eucharist, by all means come to church. There is room to social distance. Those who have been attending recently have found being together, at a distance, and receiving Christ to be supremely comforting.
We understand why some people have felt the need to remain absent but we hope those who have absented themselves will soon venture out and return. The Eucharist is central to our lives and on Sunday mornings it is offered here at St. George. That is the one thing—the most important thing--that is unavailable through an on-line church service. All are welcome at this point and we hope to see more parishioners each Sunday. God bless!
REMINDER: Anyone preferring greater distance from others than that found in the nave is welcome to use the upstairs Sunday School room. The room provides full visibility and ease to hear the services. One can participate in corporate worship from upstairs while remaining at the greatest distance in proximity to the rest of the congregation.
COFFEE HOUR fellowship is suspended yet for a while. We hope it won’t be much longer. We all miss each other and pray that things will be back to normal before long—God grant it!
RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION If you are unable to come to church on Sunday morning to receive Holy Communion and still desire to be Communed during this unprecedented time, please contact Fr. Leo to make arrangements to be Communed (207-385-3000).
CURRENT FINANCIALS Presently we are down $7500 for the year. Would appreciate an effort from all to help make up the short-fall at this time. Thank you very much for your kind attention to the needs of our beloved church.
STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE FORM Further down in this bulletin, you can find our St. George Parish Pledge Form as a PDF. If needed, you can download, complete and return. Thank you!
THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING YOUR STEWARDSHIP We are yet to return to full capacity in attendance but we do see a reasonable amount of worshipers each Sunday. Please, if you are still choosing to stay at home for a while, we ask that you continue to keep the financial concerns of the parish in mind while we are yet physically separated. We’re grateful to each of you and Fr. remembers you in prayer daily.
