This Week's Announcements

Help Support our Children on Sunday Mornings

As fall approaches, St. George’s plans to restart our Sunday School program for the older elementary and middle school students, in addition to our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium, which serves our youngest members. In order to have a successful Sunday School this school year, we need your help! We are in need of Arium Assistants and Sunday School leaders for both the Older Elementary and Middle School groups. Would you be willing to contribute your time to the Sunday School program this fall in one of these roles? To offer your time, or for more information, please contact Rev. Grant at revgrant@stgeorges-maplewood.org.

Movie Night Under the Stars @ St. George’s

Join us Saturday, August 20th at 7pm for Movie Night Under the Stars! Bring a blanket or chair to sit on, food to share, and a friend and/or neighbors to enjoy a movie together. All are welcome!  If the weather does not cooperate, we will shift the event into the parish hall. Questions: contact Kyristina Mahoney at kmahoneyj@gmail.com

 
 

It’s Confirmation Time! 

Confirmation is a liturgical moment in a Christian’s life when they make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism. While often associated with youth, Confirmation is also expected for any adult who has been baptized, unless they were baptized by a Bishop, as a way of publicly owning their Baptism in the wider Church. Adults who have already been Confirmed can also Renew their Baptismal Vows, a process of recommitting oneself to the responsibilities of Baptism. 

Rev. Grant is organizing an Adult Confirmation class for this upcoming program year; it is open to any adult who wishes to be Confirmed or Reaffirm their Baptismal Vows. Please email Rev. Grant at revgrant@stgeorges-maplewood.org if you are interested in registering for the class or to learn more about Confirmation.

*There will be no Confirmation for youth offered this year. Our next Youth Confirmation class will occur Fall of 2023.*

Food Pantry Collection for the month of August – Shelf-stable milk
 

We are collecting for the Food Pantry at Holy Trinity West Orange in August. We have been asked to focus on a single type of food each month to ease sorting. The suggested items are all types of shelf-stable milk. Drop off donations in the vestibule off the parking lot or in the Narthex food barrel. Other non-perishable donations are accepted. Questions: contact Lindsay McHugh at mchugh.lindsay@gmail.com.
