Welcome to St. George’s We are glad you have chosen to worship with us today! Please sign our guest book and join us for refreshments and fellowship after each service.

Welcome and thank you to Father Arnold Hoffman, our preacher and celebrant this morning. Pastor Ron Neustadt will be here next Sunday, July 17, while Father Dale is on vacation. In case of a pastoral emergency during this time, please contact Father Ian Wetmore at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in O’Fallon, 632-6168.

Special Forum this morning – Garrett Evans, son of Chuck & Marti Evans and a two-time recipient of scholarships from our Florence Martin Fund, is with us this morning to talk about his experience of spiritual practice and meditation.

Free Shirts – Have you noticed all the St. George’s shirts on the table in the parish hall? They are “leftovers” from various events in our parish, and we want you to have one. There is no charge, although we will certainly accept a donation if you wish to leave one. Please help yourself and make sure everyone in your family has a St. George’s tee!

_______________________________________

Volunteers are needed to help mow the lawn. St. George’s will be responsible for August and October – St. Mark covers the other months. Use our lawn mower or bring your own. If you can help on occasion, please contact Joe Hooten. Thank you!

_______________________________________

We need to rebuild our Hospitality Committee, and are looking for folks who might be interested in being part of a team to assist with the annual meeting lunch, parish picnic, funeral receptions, etc. No one needs to do everything, but some of us need to do something! If you are interested, please contact the parish office. Thank you.

_______________________________________

If you would like unction (anointing and healing prayer by the priest), please indicate this at the altar rail. Members of the Order of St. Luke are available on the south side of the church (near the votive candles) for additional prayer for those who wish. Simply move to that location after receiving communion

_______________________________________

All baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion. We believe this is Christ’s Body and Blood, according to Christ’s very promise. One appropriately receives the consecrated wafer on your hands (right over left) and raises it to your mouth, or receives it directly on your tongue. Then assist the chalice bearer in guiding the chalice to your lips. If you wish to receive by “intinction”, leave the host on your palm and the chalice bearer will pick it up, intinct, and place it on your tongue. Do not intinct yourself – this prevents fingers touching the wine. If you do not wish to receive the chalice, please indicate this by crossing your arms over your chest.
