IMPORTANT: PARISH SURVEY (Live February 1-March 1, 2020)

 Click here to take the survey: www.DiscipleMakerIndex.com

The Church of St. George will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute as part of the Archdiocesan Synod Process!  We need your help and participation.

Please be part of this important process by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.  The survey can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer at www.disciplemakerindex.com  from February 1 – March 1 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible to help our parish in planning for the future how best to serve the needs of our parishioners.

Need assistance?  Don’t use a smartphone, tablet or computer?  After  Mass on the weekends in February, come to the parish community center and use an iPad made available for you to complete the survey.  First, contact our parish Synod ambassador and Parish Pastoral Council member, Daren Grothaus, at daren.grothaus@genmills.com for an appointment date and time.  A paper version of the survey is also available.   Contact the parish office to receive a paper copy. 

Thank you for helping with this important project!

The survey is also available in Spanish!

PIVOTAL PLAYERS: RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FOR ADULTS

Tuesday, March 10th, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM  in the Community Center

Father Juettner will be presenting a new, inspiring series of instructional videos on the lives of saints and outstanding scholars in the Church.  The new series is entitled CATHOLICISM: PIVOTAL PLAYERS, an instruction on the lives of holy men and women in the church prepared by “Word on Fire” Ministry under the direction of Bishop Robert Baron, a noteworthy evangelist and academic.   Bishop Barron continues his journey around the world to explore a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church, but changed the course of western civilization.  The first volume of CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players features six people who responded to the grace of God to make a difference.

Fr. Juettner will be present for the video showing, and then afterwards, he will facilitate any discussion and respond to Q/A as long as interest is shown.  

The remaining videos of pivotal players will also shown on Tuesday afternoons bimonthly during the next four months.   Watch for announcements in the parish bulletin. 

Come and Journey with Bishop Barron to explore the lasting influence of these Pivotal Players.  All are welcome to attend!
