Many have reached out asking what everyone can do to help with the church financials. While every donation is greatly appreciated, the church does not want to put a financial burden on the faithful. If you are able and want to contribute, please follow link: https://www.stgeorgesa.org/donate-online/
Annual Lenten Appeal:
The Annual Lenten Appeal for the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon is now taking place. The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is conducted each year during Lent to ask for support for the most urgent needs in the Eparchy. Please help us reach our goal of $10,000, we have collected $5,250. You can mail your donation or make your online donation, one time or recurring, please click on the following link: https://www.stgeorgesa.org/donations/2020-lenten-appeal/
Support our Community:
Please remember to support the businesses owned by our parishioners. A list of these businesses is published in the weekly newsletter. With our parish facilities closed, our maintenance staff are available to do any maintenance and/or yard work that you need done at your home or business. I ask you once again to support each other in these difficult times. Please feel free to reach out to me for contact information or if you have any questions.
Please keep safe and healthy and stay home.
You remain in my thoughts and prayers.
Fr. Charles Khachan, MLM
