WELCOME VISITORS! We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our visitors today. Whether you live in our area and decided to worship with us today or if you are visiting from out of town, we offer you a warm Georgian welcome! There are visitor cards in most of the pews and we ask that you fill one out and give it to the Greeters at the door or simply drop it in the offering plate. We’d love to see you again. Our Sunday Mass is at 10am. Details are on our website, www.stgeorgesschenectady.org.

Two volunteers per day minimum will be needed to successfully meet the lunch serving responsibilities, but others may also sign up to help out on any of our days. Thank you.
