TODAY’S INSTRUCTION ON THE FAITH: Why all the ritual and ceremonial?

ACOLYTE TRAINING
Acolyte training will begin Sunday, September 11 between 8:00 and 10:30 services. We need both young men and adults to strengthen the current core of acolytes that serve St. George’s on Sundays and Wednesdays. All novices need to be confirmed before actually serving at the altar. The training consists of approximately 6-8 weeks of study followed by 3 months of hands-on and 2-3 months of assisting at the altar under the tutelage of the acolyte trainer (Rick Cummings) or acolyte warden (John Pelham). All parishioners are welcome to attend the first part of the training to better understand why we do the things we do. Y’all come.”
