All Pets Welcome
L'Arche is a treasure in our community of Transcona, their work with those living with intellectual difficulties is a beacon of light to humanity.
With the Anglican Church being in Full Communion with the Lutheran Church we get to do some cool things together.
This is a gentle reminder that in these icy times we have parishioners who are not so steady on their feet. Please keep the parking spots close to the church free for those who need to park closer to the building.
This is what the family of the church is about. I love all the things we do together, I know there are many things that go on outside of the church that have not been mentioned - and that is what makes St George's a fabulous bunch of people to worship with and a great family to be part of.

Consecration Of The Church
If you can spare an hour on either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning from 7:30-8:30, the breakfast club at Wayota school would love to have you help serve breakfast. Pop the bread in the toaster and the kids will love you. It is fun and very rewarding to know that kids are learning better because they are fed!
Also at Wayoata School, any hour on a weekly basis to sit and listen to a child read is a great way to be involved with the young people in our community. The teacher in the classroom chooses the books, all you have to do is listen and support the child in their reading.
Please talk to Rev Helen if you are interested in either program.
2011 marked our 100th anniversary.
As part of the World Wide Anglican Communion, Diocese are encouraged to partner with Diocese around the world, to learn and support each other. For many year Rupert's Land Diocese has been in mutual partnership with the Diocese of Central Buganda.
It is a beneficial relationship of friendship and collaboration.

What is ACPO, you may wonder?
The Advisory Committee on Postulants for Ordination, ACPO, is a national discernment process advisory to bishops. At an annual discernment conferences, ACPO evaluates all persons seeking acceptance as postulants for ordination to the priesthood in the Anglican Church of Canada and provides a prescriptive evaluative report for bishops and those assessed. A typical ACPO report advises a bishop about the 'personal strengths and weaknesses of candidates, the nature of their personal faith, their present understanding and potential for Christian ministry, and their understanding of vocation.' Theresa went to Calgary as part of the discernment process in her journey toward ordained ministry. She has been invited to continue on the path that is before her. Congratulations!
Theresa has been invited to continue

Youth Group:We have a small and committed group of young people who have asked for a bible study youth group. The group will be self determining, so that means they will choose how they want to operate. We are going to trial until Christmas and see how things go. The initial thought was that it would be a weekly event, Thursday evenings at St George's from 7pm till 9pm.
If you have a child or grandchild between the ages of 12 and 18, they are welcome. Please come out and join us, there will be fun and learning along the way.
