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.  

St George's received a letter recently asking for the support of friendship.  They are beginning a 'special friend' program where volunteers meet with a core member and visit for a while, to socialize, go for coffee, have a walk around the mall or other similar activities.  
Friendship and community are beautiful things to share.  If you would like further information please contact Liz from L'Arche through an email here.


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.  

Having a blue disabled parking pass is only useful in the city of Winnipeg parking spots.  

At St George's we use a much better system, it is called consideration .  So please consider the needs of others :)


Thank You

Over the past couple of weeks there are many things that have been done in our church with the support of volunteers that we need to say thank you for.

  • Our Easter Services were fun and fulfilling, thank to all who helped with the planning, the breakfast and clean up.
  • Our Night in Africa was entertaining and very informative.  Thank you to those who helped with hospitality and for those who came to join us from other parishes.  They shared their stories and showed us more of the the good work that is being done there.  
  • From St George's we have sent to our Companion Parish over $800 to help with the repairs of the roof.  Thank you to all who have donated and shown support for our brother and sisters in Christ so far away.
  • Thank You to all who came and celebrated with Muriel James for her centennial birthday.  She had some wonderful congratulatory notes from Queen Elizabeth II, our Prime Minister, every level of government, our Bishop and many others.  It was a milestone worth marking.
  • Today our family supported Charlotte Wells as we gave Bill a fitting tribute and funeral service.  Together we blessed him and sent him on his journey back to his heavenly Father, Thank you all who came to support Charlotte and her family over this difficult time.
  • Thank you to all those who have brought in Mother Day donations for the Shoebox Project.  Many have written cards of encouragement to women they don't know, as a way to lift the spirit of one who finds themselves in a tough spot.
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.

Again, I say - Thank You

Companion Diocese

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.


Mother's Day Little Luxuries

Please help make the day of someone who finds themselves in a shelter.  We are filling shoes boxes of small luxury items such as body wash, body lotion and maybe a bit of make up as a reminder that the recipient is cared for.  All items need to be new and unused.


7:30 pm on Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7 at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church (525 Wardlaw).  Tickets are $15. You can get them in advance from Rory at Manitoba Association of Playwrights (MAP) - 204-942-8941 - or at the door.

Set in the mid-1990s, The Vicar of Dibley  is the story of a small English village suddenly faced with the unimaginable - a female vicar!  (The Church of England ordained its first women priests in 1994.)  Rev. Geraldine Granger tries to win over her parishioners in the face of staunch opposition, through sheer determination and a lot of humour.

Based on the BBC TV comedy written by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer and adapted for the stage by playwright Arthur Milner,  The Vicar of Dibley  is being presented as a fundraiser for the  Manitoba Association of Playwrights , in it continuing work of supporting playwrights at all stages of development, and for the  St. Matthew's-Maryland Community Ministry,  which provides drop-in and support services for people living in poverty in Winnipeg's West End.

The cast includes Anglican priests, United Church ministers, retired ministers, student ministers, and deacons.  Lenise Francis, Ted Dodd, Allison Courey, Donald McKenzie, Di Panting, Don Schau, Maureen McCarney, Patrick Woodbeck, Helen Kennedy,

As you can see our very own Helen Kennedy is part of the cast. There will be a sign up sheet for tickets at the back of the church.

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.


Home communion, hospital visits & prayers for healing are always available as requested; we also provide a monthly service (2nd Wednesday, 9:45am) for residents of Park Manor PCH - more volunteers (especially singers) needed. To help or for more information about our (scent-free) church or any activities, please call the church office
204-222-1942.With the Anglican Church being in Full Communion with the Lutheran Church we get to do some cool things together.


Bellringer News: Future issues of the Bellringer are not being considered at this time. Please watch your Sunday bulletin for news of upcoming events, etc.
