LITURGICAL/SACRAMENTAL NEWS
  • "I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you (Jn 15:5-7)."
  • Please pray for the families and soul of Gerald "Jerry" Rohan who passed away last week.

STEWARDSHIP NEWS
RAISE THE ROOF APPEAL: Spring in Erie and the promise of Easter give us time to pause and be grateful for all that God has given us. I am particularly grateful to those who have answered the call, figuratively and literally, to be a part of this historic appeal. The response to our most recent mailing has been so appreciated.
I have also reached out by phone to speak with many of you and will continue to make the call seeking support. Keep Saint George in prayer as we continue to be good stewards to our most blessed home.
Yours in Christ, Father Brian
