WE ARE WITH YOU

During this most difficult time, we the staff and parishioners of St. George pray for you, your family and your loved one who has gone home to the Kingdom.  This is a most challenging time but the Lord does comfort and strengthen us.  In the midst of our pain, loss and sadness, Christ the Risen Lord draws close to us through our family, friends and parish community.  Jesus walks with us reminding us to gaze towards heaven.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help support you and your loved ones.  Please take a look at the resource links below.  They may be good spiritual helps during this time.

(5) POPE FRANCIS VIDEO ON THE RESURRECTION


“The faith we profess in the resurrection makes us men and woman of hope, not despair, men and women of life, not death, for we are comforted by the promise of eternal life, grounded in our union with the risen Christ.

This hope, rekindled in us by the word of God, helps us to be trusting in the face of death. Jesus has shown us that death is not the last word; rather, the merciful love of the Father transfigures us and makes us live in eternal communion with Him. A fundamental mark of the Christian is a sense of anxious expectation of our final encounter with God. ” (November 3, 2017)
