was held in conjunction with
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.
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.'
ACPO is one of the four arenas (parish, diocese, theological college, ACPO) of the discernment process used by bishops. Each arena has a specific responsibility in the discernment process. It is the primary responsibility of ACPO to assess for the wider church on issues related to character, charisms and call to ordered ministry.
Responsibilities for ACPO also include:
Once the evaluation report has been given, it is the responsibility of the bishop to make decisions about the candidate and the particular form of ministry for which she is preparing, for Theresa this is the priesthood.
Please keep Theresa in your prayers, this discernment time can be stressful but also rewarding as she, along with others, finds the path that God has for her and her family.

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,
