CHRISTMAS outreach

In Norwood the public school nurses work with families who are homeless or in need of help at the holiday season. We will be helping by purchasing items for children and families at 5 of the Norwood Schools. All items must be returned to St. George no later than Monday, December 11th. Gifts may be wrapped or unwrapped, but please include the gift tag with your item(s).



STEWARDSHIP AND SHOPPING

It has become a "normal" thing to look for deals after Thanksgiving. While sharing gifts with loved ones is a beautiful thing, remember first to share with God, giving back to Him from the bounty you have received.

The 2018 Stewardship Program at Saint George began last Sunday and by now most everyone should have their packet. Please prayerfully consider your gift to the parish and return your pledge cards by December 17th. You may set up your pledge online at www.StGeorgeNorwood.org using a credit card on PayPal.

And while you are online, make our homepage the starting point for your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping: Click the Amazon Smile link and make your purchases as usual. Saint George will receive a percentage of everything you buy (we don't know who buys or what it is you buy!)



Altar Server Vestments

In just a few short weeks we received generous donations which have allowed us to purachase new altar server vestments (called the sticharion.) They have been ordered and we are anxiously awaiting their arrival. Our thanks to Helen Abril, Joan Cassidy, Paul Eysie, Adam Florio, Marlene Lupaczyk, and and to Marcia Shapiro and June Johnson Wolff, who have made donations in memory of Esther Deeb. May the Lord God remember you in His Kingdom.



Holy Bread

Calling all bread bakers! We are about to put out a new schedule for our team and are looking for new members to help us with our holy bread. We can provide recipes and directions, if needed. Please see Father Joseph or Emily Pappas.



Parish Directory

The newest edition of the Parish Directory is now available. There is a one free copy for each home. They may be picked up today at coffee hour.



HOLY BREAD AND COFFEE HOUR

Thanks to everyone who has signed up this fall to offer gifts at Liturgy and the refreshments following. The pages for each Sunday in 2018 are in the notebook in the hall for those looking ahead to next year.



SALAD DRESSING SALES

Have you run out of salad dressing and marinade? It is the perfect blend for your homemade salad or to rub on shrimp and chicken before your grill. If you have run out you can pick up a jar at church on Sunday mornings. Or you may see our team of ladies selling Sittee's Savory Kitchen Salad Dressing at Farmer's Markets in the area. Just yesterday they were in Walpole.



BUILDING RENOVATION AND EXPANSION

In answer to requests from those at the annual meeting, a new flyer has been printed showing an overview of the project, its costs and funding. These were put in the mail this past week and an additional copy is enclosed with this bulletin so that you may pass it on to family and friends who are interested in our building campaign. Information about Designated Donations can be found in the parish hall.



New Building Renovation Design

The Parish Council and Building Committee are pleased to share the updated sketches for our renovation and expansion project.

We are grateful for our generous donors. We are now offering everyone the opportunity to contribute a dedicated donation. If you and your family (or several) families are moved to dedicate a portion of this project in honor or memory of a loved one, please click here for the details.

Your prayers and support are much appreciated.



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.
