First Day of Church School

We kicked off another church school year with Matins and a church school blessing.

After Liturgy we handed out Creative Arts awards and each sixth grader was gifted a bible.  Thanks to the St. George bookstore, and those who support the bookstore, for donating the bibles to our sixth graders.

We look forward to another fruitful church school year!

Transfiguration Monastery Retreat

We enjoyed a delightful retreat at Transfiguration Monastery in Ellwood City.

Our visit started and ended with prayer and in between we enjoyed tours of the monastery and chats with Mother Christophora, a picnic lunch, and a walk around the beautiful grounds.

We thank Mother Christophora and the other mothers and sisters for their wonderful hospitality. We look forward to making this a regular trip a couple times a year.

Helping our Neighbors

On the first Friday of every month,we serve as a pantry for the Westmoreland County Food Bank.  The food bank truck arrives at 8 am and we unload all the food and prepare to distribute it to our qualified neighbors.

Thank you to all the volunteers from our community that help us with the Food Pantry each month and to  the volunteers from Allegheny Health Networks’ Citizens school of nursing that helped us in June.  We really appreciate the help!

Our teen SOYO also periodically prepares bagged lunches to take to FOCUS Pittsburgh for distribution to their neighbors in the Hill District.
