Alleluia! The Lord is Risen!
Again we had joyful and uplifting Holy Week and Easter services. The ringing of bells, the wonderful music, the return of Alleluias, and joyous shouts of “Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!” all witness to the faith in Jesus at St. George’s!
Many thanks to those who are so instrumental, year after year, in bringing about our liturgies, the “work of the people”. Special thanks to Nancy Ypma and the Choir; to Nolan Haefner and our ushers; to our dedicated readers, chalice bearers, and acolytes; to Duffy Walters and the Altar Guild; and to Mae Scott for our annual Easter Egg Hunt.
May God richly bless us during these 50 days of Easter! Fr. Dale +
Annual Parish Picnic at Toddhall on Sunday, May 31
This year our annual event at Toddhall will be a few weeks earlier than in the past. We will celebrate the Eucharist as usual at 8:00 at St. George’s and at Toddhall at 11:00 am, but this year the second service will be in the St. Cecelia Chapel, which will allow us to avoid walking up and down the long hill and on the uneven paving stones in the outdoor chapel. And Nancy Ypma will be there to lead our hymns on the organ.
The picnic part of our day remains the same – we provide hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks; you brings side dishes. And bring your lawn chairs, baseball bats, soccer balls, hats and sunscreen!
