Turning Toward the Future with Caution and Hope
A Word from Bishop Budde

Bishop Budde, along with Bishop Sutton of Baltimore and Bishop Goff of Virginia, have provided guidance to the parishes in their respective Dioceses for a phased approach to reagthering as Church. It provides strict yet broad guidance following Public Health indicators.

St.George's Vestry has already begun the work of what a phased approach to reopening would be for St. George's specifically, within the guidelines of Bishop Budde's phased approach. The Vestry is collecting all of the questions we need to ask in every phase such that we think through all of the details. Once all of the questions are formulated the Vetstry will answer those questions in a well thought out manner with the goal of producing a St. George's specific plan for each phase. The Vestry welcomes all input.

Seminarian Christopher Decatur
Graduation May 14, 2020

Help me in extending a well deserved congratulatons to Christopher Decatur, our beloved Seminarian. Chris completed his studies at Virginia Theoligical Seminary earning a Master of Divinity degree. Graduation on May 14th will take place virtually. When Chris has the link for VTS's graduation he will forward it to us. I hope that we will all be able to be there for Chris virtually.

We will mail to Chris the purse we collected for him. We want to thank everyone who was able to contribute.

If you would like to send Chris your personal congratulations upon his graduation you may mail him at: The Episcopal Diocese of Ohio 2230 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, Ohio 44115

Outreach: Serving the Community

Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.

Making Masks: Currently there is a national shortage of masks, and these masks are vital as they can be worn over the single use N95 masks and allow them to be worn for up to a week. A collague has been sewing these for the past few nights, and they are an incredibly easy way to help our community. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to make them:

We will collect them at the church and then send them where they are needed most. Please contact the Rev Jenkins if you have made masks that need to be picked up.

New Website

We have our new website up and running. It is a work in progress so it will continue to evolve over time.
