Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

 

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus!  I thank God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the world. For God, whom I serve with my spirit by announcing the gospel of his Son, is my witness that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers.  At St. George we long to see you so that we may share with you some spiritual gift so that you may be strengthened— or rather so that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith!

Welcome to St. George - a place where you are loved and where everyone is welcome!  Jesus has set the guiding principles of love for God and love for each other and this community is committed to this project of love.

We hope that you will join us on Sunday and during all of our many activities!  If you have any thoughts or questions, please contact us and we'll do all in our power to be helpful.

Yours in Christ,

Rev. Jon, Rector

Rev. Jon's Message
April 18, 2024


Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
 
Thank you all so much for your prayers and support for our beloved Cuba ministry!  As you know, I recently journeyed to Camaguey and Sibanicu with Amy Dyar, Wanda Wynn, Pam Spencer, and Bob Frulla.  This was a life changing experience and I encourage all of you who have not yet travelled to Cuba to sign up for the next trip in 2026.  
Although Cuba is incredibly impoverished, the people of the island are delightful, faithful, and generous.  We stayed part of the time with the Rev. Father Alfredo Nuno Sierra and his wife Rebecca at their home in Camaguey - which at 300,000 people is the third largest city in Cuba.  We also stayed in the much smaller town of Sibanicu, which is the location of our companion church, San Lucas.  Through Amy, Wanda, and many others, St. George has maintained a 20 year commitment to provide food, medicine, clothing, and additional support to this little congregation.  
Throughout my time in Cuba I was overwhelmed with the loving and gentle spirit of the people that I met, especially the folks from San Lucas.  Please stay tuned over the next several weeks as folks share their various experiences and reflections on this incredible ministry.
 
Much love,
Rev. Jon+

Buenas dias!
We are back. It was a wonderful trip. Here are a few pictures...
Our trip to San Lucas was as memorable as usual. We saw old friends and made new friends including the new Priest Rev. Alfredo and his family at San Lucas.

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!

Below are descriptions of two exciting groups at St. George. These groups are usually held in our parish hall on certain Mondays. If you are interested, please call the church office for information at 904-251-9272 or send an email to  info.stgeorgechurch@gmail.com

What is Care Givers Group?

 

If you are caring for a loved one, you are not alone, if you find yourself overwhelmed, frustrated, sad, and on and on.

The caregivers support group meets to express these feelings among others who share the same situations.

Sometimes, only others who share the same experiences can truly understand and offer relief through honest discussion and practical solutions.

What is the Circle of Sisters Group?

The Circle of Sisters is a group of women who come together to check in with each other and offer a listening ear and a willing hand to anyone in need of support.

 

We also focus on helping make this a better place through volunteering, learning and giving. Some of our most recent events included volunteering at FEEDING NE FLORIDA, touring and donating to RETHREADED and taking the St. Johns Riverkeeper's tour on the river taxi while learning about our precious resource, water.
