Bread-Baking Workshop

Have you ever wondered about the bread St. George’s uses at our Eucharist? Many years ago, one of our previous rectors, John Price, brought the recipe back from a retreat he attended at the Benedictine Monastery in Pecos, New Mexico. We have used it ever since.

Would you like to  join our list of bakers? If so, we have an opportunity for you! Please join a Bread-Baking Workshop hosted by Gayle Wall. All are welcome – anyone interested in learning to make the bread rounds and any of our current bakers who would like to refresh their skills. Gayle will furnish all the needed supplies for the workshop as well as a recipe and a cutter you can take home. The recipe contains no yeast so it isn’t an all-day affair.

Please RSVP to the church office at stgeorgeaustin@gmail.com or 512-454-2523 by Thursday, September 19th. But feel free to join us even if you haven’t RSVP’d – drop-ins are welcome!

Pauli Murray Gala

At Diocesan Council 2018, Bishop Doyle spoke of the need to have more Episcopal clergy of color. In response, St. James Episcopal Church, Austin, in cooperation with Seminary of the Southwest, started a scholarship fund for students of color attending seminary. This scholarship fund has been named for Pauli Murray, a Civil Rights activist and the first African American woman ordained an Episcopal priest.

You are invited to help kick off and support this important scholarship fund on Saturday, September 28, at 6:30 pm, at the Double Tree Hotel (at I-35 & 290). Individual tickets ($100.00) and table sponsorships can be purchased at www.welcometableaustin.org/pauli-murray-scholarship. Feel free to spread the word to your friends and make this a great event! If you are unable to attend the Gala, you are invited to donate money to support the scholarship at the previously mentioned website. For more information, contact Jim Harrington at jim@stjamesaustin.org

Fifth Sunday Potluck

When a month has five Sundays, St. George's takes advantage of the "extra" Sunday by holding a potluck lunch in Kleberg Hall after the 10:30 service, where we enjoy good food and fellowship. Our next Fifth Sunday Potluck is on Sunday, September 29. This is a great opportunity for extra visiting time with church friends and guests. Bring something to share if you can, but if you can't bring anything, don't let that keep you away. There's always plenty to go around!

Ordination of Jim Enelow

For the past year, we have been blessed to have Jim Enelow serving with us as he prepares for his ordination to the vocational diaconate (meaning he feels called to permanently be a deacon as his vocation, rather than as one step in the process of ordination to the priesthood). His preparations are now reaching fruition, and his ordination to the Sacred Order of Deacons will take place on Saturday, June 22nd, at 10:00 am, at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, with a reception to follow. All St. George’s parishioners are invited to attend. Whether or not you can attend his ordination, please keep Jim in your prayers as he takes this next step in his vocation. After his ordination and a well-deserved break, with the consent of the bishop, Jim will be returning to us as our parish deacon.

Greg Garrett's Book Release

Join St. George’s own theologian-in-residence Greg Garrett as he discusses a new volume of Church Publishing Inc.’s “In Conversation” series, written with former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. In a three-day conversation that took place in Cambridge, England, they talked about friendship, the Church, the gift of great stories, the importance of Shakespeare, the art of writing poetry and fiction, the preaching event, engaging popular culture, the relationship between faith and politics, the practice of prayer, and the necessity of sacred community, modeling for us in the process both the vanishing art of conversation and an active engagement with faith, culture, and real life.

A book launch Celebration and Conversation with Greg Garrett will take place at BookPeople, hosted by KUT’s Jennifer Stayton. Refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase and signing. Visit BookPeople’s Events page for more information.

Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, the period of forty days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter. This service features the imposition of ashes, a reminder of our mortality and dependence on God, and an invitation to reflection and repentance. Lent is traditionally a time of self-examination and repentance through prayer, fasting, self-denial, and reading and meditating on scripture. The forty days of Lent symbolizes the forty years in which the Israelites wandered in the wilderness in search of the Promised Land. It also recalls the time Jesus spent in the wilderness in fasting and prayer, during which he was tempted. A common practice during Lent is to participate in a Lenten discipline; this can involve giving something up or taking on a new practice, in order to deepen your faith and bring you closer to Christ. We hope you will join us as the community of St. George’s journeys together into the Lenten season.
