August 18th – Summer Theater at Spring Mountain Ranch: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat

When:
Thursday August 18, 5:00 PM – 11:30 PM
Where:
Spring Mountain Ranch, 6375 Highway 159, Blue Diamond, NV 89004

Old Testament Rock meets Red Rock Canyon. The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this newly-orchestrated musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit is continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh, Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an energetic rock score, this Old Testament tale has never been so much fun! Produced by Stage Door Entertainment. Directed and Choreographed by Terrence R. Williams. Join us for an evening under the stars. All shows will be at Spring Mountain Ranch. The price includes transportation and entrance fee. Participants may bring a picnic dinner and a chair. There are refreshments, snack and chairs available at the park for a small fee.

Diocesan Synod 2012

The Diocesan Synod 2012 will be held at the Renaissance Hotel Tulsa, Okla June 12-14. Stay tuned for more details about this important annual event.

Annual Cake Auction and Barbecue

St. George’s Annual Cake Auction and Barbecue will be held after the 10:30 service on June 3, 2012. This special event is an opportunity for the men of the parish to do the baking, and to offer them for auction to the entire congregation. It is always great fun to see just how talented (and imaginative!) the men of the parish are.

Equally fun, the auctioneer is a great master of ceremonies, drawing not only the greatest return from each masterpiece, but great commentary on both the chef and the audience.

This year, we’re combining the event with a barbecue, so the day will be even more fun. The entire parish family will have quite a day. Stay tuned for photos of the event on the website.

KEEPING THINGS FESTIVE THROUGH WHITSUNDAY

From Easter Day to Whitsunday is perhaps the most glorious fifty days of the Church Kalendar year. For forty days following our Lord’s Resurrection, He walked the earth and appeared unto His disciples and to numerous others. As Our Lord promised His disciples, on the fortieth day He ascended into Heaven (Ascension Day will be observed on this week on Wednesday, May 16th, 5:45 pm) and told them to wait for the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, who descended on the disciples ten days later (Whitsunday or Pentecost, Sunday, May 27). To distinguish these most momentous and joy-filled days in the history of mankind, the Church will adorn Herself with all the beauty She is capable of, and this will be expressed in its Masses, in its music and in its priestly vestments. One highlight will be the beautiful cope Fr. Hines will wear in the festival Masses.
