September 29th 9:30 am up to the end of the 5 pm Mass
You have likely read in the bulletin about St. George's parish focus on evangelism and prayer. The first event geared toward this theme will be a guided retreat on Saturday, September 29, 2018 for all parish and ministry leaders. As a valued member of our parish leadership, we hope you will attend.
The retreat will begin at 9:30 am in our parish hall. Coffee, lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided, and the retreat will end at 6 pm after we attend together the Vigil Mass.
As Msgr. Hans noted in the July 22/29 parish bulletin, "The renovated church is an opportunity to renew how we worship and pray in our church, as a community and in private prayer, with music and in silence. This is a great opportunity to rediscover St. George's Church as a sacred space and as our spiritual home. I encourage all our parishioners and friends to join this discovery."
An ad hoc committee on evangelism (see below) has chosen the topic of prayer, in all its forms, as the necessary first step in parish evangelization. A pew survey prior to the leader retreat will ask all parishioners about current prayer habits (i.e. our baseline), and a summary of that survey will be available at the retreat. The retreat will include discernment, prayer and group discussion.
Your participation as one of our parish ministry leaders is important to the success of this initiative. Please book September 29th on your calendar.
We look forward to seeing you there!
