2017 CALENDARS

Our gift to each parish family is a full color liturgical calendar. It has been donated this year by Kraw- Kornack Funeral Home. It includes the saints and scripture readings for each day and highlights fasting periods. The calendar this year features icons of the Old Testament prophets -- the originals were painted by Kh Erin and recently installed at Saint Anthony Church, Spring, Texas.

You can listen to Erin speak about icons and her new book on Ancient Faith Radio www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/orthodixie/hospitality_and_joy_with_erin_kimmett. And you can read more about the icon installation (or watch a video) from the front page of the Christmas Day edition of the Houston Chronicle (houstonchronicle.com)



House Blessings

The season celebrating Theophany, Our Lord's baptism in the Jordan is the traditional time for having your home blessed. Please see Father Joseph.

STEWARDSHIP

Each year we set aside time to speak about stewardship -- a topic not focused on dollars but rather our response as Christians to the abundance of gifts God has given us. It is so important that each of us take this responsibility seriously; both for the building up of our community and our spiritual wellbeing. The deadline was the middle of last month and the cards returned so far suggest a rise in the average gift. We are so appreciative to those who support our parish. A list of our stewards (including seven new donors) will be published in an upcoming bulletin.

Sittee's Savory Kitchen

Need a stocking stuffer or hostess gift this season? Give our parish's salad dressing and marinade: Jars and refills are available at coffee hour and on line at SitteesSavoryKitchen.com What a great stocking stuffer! Proceeds are all going to our building fund.

The Mission Statement (from the lid of the jar):
Sittee is "my grandmother" - one of countless women who, as the backbone of our community, used their culinary talents to help build and sustain our church. Sittee's Savory Kitchen honors these beloved women and their legacy by giving all proceeds to the Building Fund.



Saint George Capital Campaign

Since kicking off the campaign to raise funds for our building renovation, expansion and elevator we have received pledges from 58 families and foundations. This represents 95 parishioners and friends and totals over $215,000. And with what is in the bank we now have committents or cash for over $825,000. The Council and Building Committee met recently with our architect to refine the design and costs. It was a fabulous meeting and we plan to share all the information with everyone very soon.
