Bulletin Announcements for March 13, 2016

Bulletin Announcements for March 13, 2016 TODAY’S INSTRUCTION ON THE FAITH:  What is the Sacred Triduum? EASTER BASKETS ARE ON DISPLAY ON THE PATIO Please stop for a few moments after Mass and look at the beautiful Easter baskets.  The drawing will take place after 10:30 AM Mass on Easter morning during our festive Coffee Hour.  Raffle tickets are $1.00 each or six tickets for $5.00.  Thanks to St. Anne’s Guild of the ACW, these baskets have become a wonderful tradition at St. George’s. ACW MEETING, NEXT SATURDAY, 2:00 PM, MARCH 19, 2016, AT THE CHURCH OFFICE ALTAR OF REPOSE – THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2016 “Can you not pray with me one hour?”  This was our Lord’s plea to his disciples on the night of His betrayal and pending His crucifixion on Good Friday. Our Lord poses this question to us as well.   May we assent to our Lord’s cry for us to pray with Him.  Like Simon of Cyrene who bore our Lord’s cross on our Lord’s march to Calvary, what for Simon had begun as a compulsory task became a delight and joy.  Please come and spend an hour before the Altar of Repose in silence and in quiet reflection spending time with Our Lord.  In that time with Him, you will receive His peace which passes all understanding in the midst of your own trials. A sign-up sheet is available on the table at the back of the church for those who wish to pray at the Altar of Repose.  There is no limit to the number of those who can pray during the assigned hours from 8:00 p.m. – Midnight. EASTER LILIES SIGN-UP SHEET IS AVAILABLE ON THE PATIO STATIONS OF THE CROSS EVERY FRIDAY IN LENT Stations of the Cross are scheduled at Noon each Friday during Lent.  The next service is Friday, March 18.
