Summer Wrap-up

As Summer draws to a close, a new school-year begins and we all look forward to temperatures not hitting the century mark on a consistent basis...  At St. George, many of our parishioners hit the road vacationing, but thankfully, there were a number of visitors over the last few months as well.  A few key events that occurred:

  • Fr. Antonio drove a truck donated by St. Justin Martyr (Jacksonville, FL) down to Mexico City.  It is already getting good use on the mission field.  (See our Facebook page for a link to a video.
  • Summer Camp – camp was held in the same location as last year, outside of Ledbetter, TX.  It was a time of spiritual growth and lots of fun! .  (See our Facebook page for a link to a video.)
  • The Diocese of the South had its Assembly in Wilmington, NC.  His Grace, newly enthroned Bishop Alexander, presided over the meetings. 
  • The wedding of parishioner Denise Cuellar to Reese Stamper along with a farewell as she moves to Washington State.  (See our Facebook page for a link to a photo album.)
  • The funeral of parishioner Jose Barreda, may his memory be eternal!

Coming up…

On Saturday, September 10th, we begin cooking for this year’s International Festival.  As always, we need your help! More details to follow…
