Annual May Procession

Our Annual May Procession will take place immediately following the 10:00 AM Mass on Sunday, May 14, 2017. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day and the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima then by honoring our Blessed Mother with hymns, prayers, and the crowning of Mary by our May Queen!!! Please join us for this annual tradition. Eighth grade girls from local elementary schools were invited to write an essay on "Why Mary is an Outstanding Role Model for Youth Today" in consideration for May Queen. The winner of this year's essay competition is Miss Abigail Kimilu, an active Youth Group member at St. George, an altar server, and a Leader of Song. Our runner-up was Miss Franchesca Parker, also an active member of our Youth Group and and Altar Server.  Abigail will be crowning the Blessed Mother statue during the May Procession and Franchesca will be assisting in Mary's Court. Congratulations to both of these girls! All are welcome to join us as we honor the Mother of God!

Students who will be graduating from kindergarden, elementary school, high school or college, in addition to graduating altar servers, are invited to join us for the Graduation Mass on Sunday, June 4, at 10:00 AM. Also, students who will be going away to college are asked to contact Mrs. Chris Guidetti at the Rectory Office and give her the name of the school you will be attending for the Newman Connection. (The Institute is an online educational resource for anyone who is looking to learn about their Catholic faith and anything they would need to know about the Catholic Religion.They bring academia and theology together to answer questions like Who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing? Through providing online video courses comprised of a series of classes, they can deliver proper Catechisms at a high school level and above to help students figure out these questions.) Following the Graduation Mass,  all are welcome to join us for some light refreshments in the courtyard.
