Heal Our Land

The genesis of the project comes from concern about the political climate our nation is currently in, the violence and turmoil we are experiencing.  We know that it is imperative that we offer praise to our Lord and ask for healing of our land.

All Saints: Service of Remembrance

You are cordially invited to

St. George’s Cemetery Annual Remembrance Service

Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at 7:00 p.m.

Each year on or near All Saints’ Day, we remember all of those who are buried in St. George’s Cemetery at a Service of Remembrance. For the congregation it is a time to reflect on the stewardship we have given of the mortal remains of the loved ones of so many families, and to offer our prayers for them to God.  The service includes the reading of the names of those who are buried in our cemetery. This service is not a mournful one, but rather one that brings a quiet joy and renewed hope as we celebrate the lives of those who have died, and give thanks for the gifts they have left to us. We hope that you will join us on this holy occasion.
