Welcome

 

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Saint George Episcopal Church online.  Visitors driving to St. George Episcopal Church will find an unspoiled place of quiet
beauty set in a sea of tropical greenery where peacocks roam the grounds and visitors are always welcome.

The Red Doors

When you enter the sanctuary at St. George to worship or pray, you will pass through our bright red doors. Painting church doors red is a widespread tradition in Episcopal churches. The red doors of an Episcopal church have traditionally led the way to holy ground where anyone who enters is safe from both physical and spiritual harm.

 

We proclaim with our red doors that our church is a haven for emotional and spiritual healing, and is a place of refuge and safety, forgiveness and reconciliation -- in other words, red doors invite the passers-by into a space filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

The color red also evokes the blood of Jesus Christ, which protects the wayfaring soul from spiritual harm.

 

Jesus Christ is our refuge. The red doors at St. George remind us that our parish community too must be a refuge for all those who enter through them. In this holy place, there will be no outcasts. Our doors are open to all!

 

God's Peace,

Father Ray+
