COMMUNION RAIL

Our beautiful new Communion rail has been given by John Davis and his sister, Sister Ann Davis, in loving memory of their parents and to their dear friend, Sister Mary Luke. Sister Mary Luke was known for her love of children, particularly the less fortunate. She worked tirelessly to bring them to Christ and to meet their most basic needs. John and Sister Ann expressed a desire for something beautiful for St. George’s in Sister Mary Luke’s memory. The engraving on the Communion rail reads: “We thank thee, O Lord, for all those who minister to God’s children…” (Epistle side); “Given to the greater Glory of Almighty God and in thanksgiving for families…” (Gospel side).

Fr. Greer was very interested in the commissioning of the new Communion rail and he offered an explanation of its significance in his Commentary on the Mass. An excerpt of what he had to say, along with photos of the inscriptions on the railing, can be found on our church website (it may be a few days before this is posted). Go to stgeorgeanglican.org.  Look up category, “New Communion Rail” under the navigation tab, “Worship.”

 

ICON OF ST. GEORGE

The beautiful reproduction of a sixteenth century Russian icon of St. George has found its home in the church sanctuary. The icon was given anonymously by a parishioner to the greater glory of almighty God and in memoriam of Father Yates C. Greer, the faithful priest and loving, caring pastor.  The icon was unveiled and blessed during the Bishop’s visit on St. George’s Day. Please visit our church website to read Judith Greer’s letter expressing her gratitude for all of the love and support she has received from parishioners. Go to the navigation tab “Worship” and look for the sub-heading, “The Great Teacher – Fr. Yates C. Greer” (please wait a few days for this posting).
