OCCUPATION DATABASE

Would you like to advertise your skills or services to other St. George parishioners?  In an effort to pair parishioners that are looking for a specific service or talent with parishioners offering those services, we are creating an “Occupation Database”.  If you would like to be a part of our “Occupation Database”, please CLICK HERE and fill out the “Offer Services” form.  Once a satisfactory data base has been established, a “Looking for Service” form will be available to pair both parties.
