Are you a friendly outgoing person?  Do you like to read aloud?  Are you interested in serving others?  These questions can all be answered by participating in the liturgy as ministers.  Greeters and Ushers are the first impression people have of St. George as they attend Mass.  Profess the Word of God by being a lector. Sacristans prepare the Eucharistic Table for all the Masses. Eucharistic ministers serve during Communion.  Contact Michele if you would like to be added to the schedule.
