PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Dear St. George Parents,

A very special person sent this message to me this week. I marvel at how God places people and messages in our path just when we need it. I hope you feel God’s presence in your daily life too.

“Very often it happens that we do not pray, we don't feel like praying, or many times we pray like parrots, with the mouth, but our heart is not in it. This is the moment to say to the Spirit: "Come, come Holy Spirit, warm my heart. Come and teach me to pray, teach me to look to the Father, to look to the Son. Teach me the path of faith. Teach me how to love and, above all, teach me to have an attitude of hope"”.  
Pope Francis -March 17, 2021

Summer Camp Information
