Coffee Hour Celebration for Joel McAlister

After passing many discernment challenges, St. George’s parishioner Joel McAlister is now a postulant of the Diocese of Texas and will be starting at the Seminary of the Southwest here in Austin in September. It’s been a long time since St. George’s sponsored a seminarian, and we’d like to celebrate his accomplishments and send him and Laura off with a special congratulatory coffee hour.  It is traditional for a parish to financially support their postulants in some way during their time at seminary. The vestry has decided that St. George’s will pay for Joel’s textbooks next year. If you would like to make an additional contribution toward seminary expenses either through cash or a check made out to Joel, you’ll have the opportunity to do so at the celebration.  We know the McAlisters would greatly appreciate it.

Labor Day Liturgy

On the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, it is our tradition is to pause and remember the contributions that we all make to the building up of God’s kingdom in the world and to renew our understanding of each of our particular vocations as a partnership with God. On Sunday, September 2nd, you are encouraged to bring a symbol of your labor to present at the altar at either the 8:00 am or 10:30 am service, and the offertory will include a special liturgy to sanctify these offerings of our time and talents that we make to God in our daily lives.

Not all of us have paid employment, and even if you do, your job may not be your primary vocation. Spend some time reflecting on what your vocation at this time of your life is, what God is calling you to do or be – it may be related to what you are paid to do, what you are studying or learning, what you do to care for others, or something else entirely.

Wear Orange / Conversation about Gun Violence

The Diocese of Texas has invited all Episcopal churches in the diocese to participate in Wear Orange Weekend. The Wear Orange campaign began in 2013, when 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed in Chicago just one week after performing with her high school marching band in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. Her friends began wearing orange in her memory and asking others to join them in doing so to raise awareness about gun violence. The first National Gun Violence Awareness Day was held in 2015. Since then, the Wear Orange awareness campaign has been held each year. This year, Wear Orange Weekend begins on Friday, June 1st – National Gun Violence Awareness Day – and continues throughout the weekend with rallies and events throughout the country. To be a part of it, you are encouraged to wear orange to church on Sunday, June 3rd. For more information, visit www.wearorange.org.

Raising awareness is a critical piece of combating gun violence, but by itself, it’s not enough. Join Kevin in Kleberg Hall at 9:15 am on Sunday, June 3rd (between the services) for a conversation about what St. George’s can do to respond to the epidemic of gun violence. Come share your ideas, or come if you don’t know what to do but want to do something!

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.
