"As we begin a new fast, let us continue to strive to help those in need. As we abstain from foods and curtail our eating habits, let us set aside the extra money we would have spent on food and give it to the poor; this will make our fasting complete. As we increase our prayer, both private and in the Church, let us set aside those extra dollars we would have spent at the movies, going out with our friends, socializing, etc.; this will help put our prayer into action. As we strive to control our passions, let us help those whose only passion is to have a small meal to eat, a glass of clean water to drink, or a warm place to rest; this will enable us to see Christ in these, the least of our brethren."
Each Wednesday during Great Lent, after Presanctified Liturgy, there is a self-serve covered dish buffet in the fellowship hall. This occurs on six Wednesdays, and various organizations of St. George volunteer to help setup before & cleanup after the food is served. All parishioners are encouraged to bring a Lenten dish.
