Bulletin Announcements for November 9 , 2014

BAPTISM TODAY
Today is an all-important event in the life of baby Agu, daughter of Godwyn & Jane Agu.  She will be baptized during the 10:30 am Mass.  Your prayers are welcomed and greatly appreciated.  Please join us after Mass on the patio to celebrate.  Historically, those persons to be baptized are given their Baptismal names upon their Baptism; thus, you will notice above that baby Agu is called by her paternal name to uphold this Church tradition.

ADVENT ITEMS FOR SALE TODAY:
Advent is the great season of looking forward.  It is the time of preparation for the Christian Year.  We prepare for Christ’s birth but we also set our eyes firmly on the Second Coming of Christ.

This year the first Sunday in Advent is November 30.  The Anglican Church Women are offering items such as books for study and meditation and books for family reading during Advent.  Advent candles and holders are available and Advent calendars are offered.  We now have San Damiano crucifixes which have been blessed by Father Hines.  2015 Order Kalendars are also available.   Please stop by the Advent table while you are enjoying your coffee after Mass.

STEWARDSHIP INGATHERING NEXT SUNDAY NOVEMBER 16TH
As Christians, we recognize God as the source of all creation, therefore the giver of all that we possess:  “All things come of Thee O Lord….” (I Chron. 29:14).  Our possessions are material things, but what we do with them is a spiritual matter.  The regular support of the ministry, through our weekly donations at Church, becomes a disciplined way of acknowledging who God is and what is His.  Practiced in the right way, our giving becomes a real way to thank God for the abundance of His blessings.  Please pray for the Stewardship of our Parish.  Pray for our Vestry.  Pray for your priest.  And finally pray to God to give you a clear sense of direction in your own offering to Him through St. George’s.  A special coffee hour will be held after each service.

WINTER COAT DRIVE FOR STUDENTS AT MOLASKY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL
