We are happy to announce that our new Prayer Shrine was dedicated and blessed at the 10:00 AM Mass on Sunday, June 3rd. The carving of Jesus with the Children came to us from Holy Spirit School, where it was once displayed.

This Prayer Shrine has been dedicated by Ronnie Egan, in memory of her loving husband,  Joseph Egan, who was a long-time parishioner and friend of so many at St. George Parish. Joe was an active member of both the Parish and the the Holy Name Society. The first candle was lit by Ronnie during the blessing ceremony.

We invite you to vist our Prayer Shrine and light a candle for your private intentions when you join us for Mass.
