Youth Group - The Dragon Slayers

The parish has a very active youth group called The Dragon Slayers (in keeping with our patron saint, St. George). This group meets with the purpose of creating points of connection for teens to God, each other, the Church, and their local and global communities.  Young people from grades 7 and up are invited to come hang out every Thursday at the Church, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  Our Thursdays are divided up into five areas of focus: faith formation; mission at home; mission abroad; eco earth; and RIDICULOUSNESS!!!  On the RIDICULOUSNESS Thursdays, grades 5 & 6 are invited to join the group. 

Heart Dogs

A monthly program carried out by the Dragon Slayers Youth through which we prepare and hand out hot-dogs and bottled water to those living on the streets of downtown Brandon. It is always a privilege to meet and pray with or for those we encounter.

Samaritan House Grocery Cart

The first Sunday of the month is dedicated to supporting the community ministry of Samaritan House food bank. In the narthex of the Church, you will encounter an old grocery cart. It is there to collect non-perishable food items from the parishioners, and to stand as a reminder that some do not have the luxury of filling a grocery cart. That which is collected is shared with folks who stop by or is taken to Samaritan House. 

Altar Flowers

Each week the Altar is adorned with beautiful flower arrangements, for the glory of God and in loving memory of parishioners loved ones who have passed on.  After each Sunday Mass, the flowers are then delivered to the sick and shut in or those experiencing times of difficulty in their lives, to brighten their day.

Sunday School

One of our defining qualities and core ministries at St. George’s is our very active Sunday School Program, lead by our dedicated teachers and helpers. Sunday school takes place during the Sunday service, which begins at 10:00 a.m..  The children begin upstairs, as Father Chad always has a “children’s talk” on the floor at the front of the Church.  The children and congregation join in singing the “children’s song”, at the end of which , the Sunday school teachers take the kids downstairs for Sunday school.  The weekly curriculum takes its shape from “The Whole People of God” program.    St. George’s also staffs a full nursery room with change table and rocking chair for nursing mothers or fussy wee ones.

Pastoral Visits

The parish priest and people of St. George’s make regular visits to those who are sick and shut in, either in their homes or in hospital or care facilities.  Holy Communion, usually by reserved sacrament, is administered during these visits as well.

 

St. George’s visits all of the care facilities, in rotation with other churches in the city of Brandon, sharing with the residence God’s Word and Sacraments, not only on the regularly scheduled services, but throughout each week as need arises.

Prayer Groups

We also have several Bible Study & Prayer Groups which meet throughout the week. There is both a Ladies’ bible study group and a bible study group for Men. Another Bible study group meets before the mid-Week Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service Wednesday Mornings, held at the Church. 

Annual Kid's Carnival

We have been proud to put on an annual Carnival for the

neighborhood community. Lots of crafts, games, bouncing, hayrides, and BBQ's have continued to bring the community together. The Kid's Karnival is one way we show God's love to our neighborhood.
