We are a community of Christians of many different ethnic backgrounds, who are worshiping God in English and who are following the ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church, the original church that was born in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. In the Holy Spirit and through our Lord Jesus Christ, we try to continue "steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers" (Acts 2:42), being "led by the Spirit of God" to be "sons of God". (Romans 8:14)

NATIVITY FAST ST. GEORGE CHURCH CHARITY INITIATIVE
What better time than the Nativity fast for our church family to help fill some of the pressing needs of the members of the Mental Health Association.
The needs that they identified for us are as follows:
· Toques, scarves and mittens
Winter boots with good treads
Winter coats (larger sizes)
Non perishable food items; things easy to make or eat (cans of soup, stew, etc.; health bars; etc.)
Towels and fleece/microfiber
Volunteers to teach knitting/crocheting to a group that meets each Wednesday
It would be so wonderful if our whole church family could become part of this initiative by:
Donating items – Items can be dropped off at the closet beside the epitrop’s desk (in front of the bookstore)
Knitting scarves, mitts toques
Donating money to purchase some of the items – A basket will be at the epitrope’s desk to receive you donations. If you wish to have a receipt, please put your donation in an envelop with your name on it. The charity committee will use the donations to purchase some of the above items
Volunteering your time by helping the charity committee with maintaining this initiative (identify yourself to either Beckie Salib or Andra Rempel – please don’t forget this part)
On Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday, May 4th, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of our church. Here are some pictures from the service of Vespers on Saturday evening and from the Hierarchal Holy Liturgy on Sunday morning.
On the weekend of the Orthodoxy Sunday, our church hosted the retreat organized by the South Saskatchewan Orthodox Clergy Association. The guest speaker for the retreat was V. Rev. Fr. Michael Oleksa who spoke on “LESSONS FROM THE SAINTS”. If you want to (re)listen to Fr. Michael’s presentations, please see the next section of our website.
