Return to In-Person Worship: Pre-Screening/Reservation Instructions

By | Community, Worship | No Comments

As you may have heard, September 13th was our first return to in-person worship service at 8:00 AM in the Parish Hall. Doors open each Sunday at 7:45 AM at the Richards portico off of Castle Lane. That will be our only entrance for in-person worship. Please plan on parking in the Castle Lane lot if you are attending. We are requiring that all attendees who are comfortable coming for in-person worship fill out our St. George Episcopal Church Pre-Screening/Reservation form by Sunday morning before they attend the service. This form will also be linked in each week’s eSpear electronic newsletter. This will speed up our on-campus screening and check-in process once you arrive. It will also help us anticipate the numbers attending and determine how we will set up the worship space. Remember, we are continuing to offer our 10:00 AM worship stream in the same format that we have been presenting each week, and we look forward to seeing you in either space!

Below is a video I have provided that walks you through the Pre-Screening/ Reservation form so that you can anticipate what it will look like.

I am also including a fun video created by the staff to highlight what to expect for the return to in-person worship. Take a look, and enjoy the fun spirit that went into this video!

As always, please reach out to me if you have any questions. The rest of the team and I are here for you and want to support you in any way possible. Have a blessed rest of your week!

Can Community of Hope Be of Service to You and Yours?

By | Community, Fellowship | No Comments

The St. George Community of Hope International (COHI) has trained lay chaplains who are available to minister to those of you and yours who could benefit from a compassionate listening presence. 

 In 1994 Rev. Helen Appelberg created the COHI training course for lay chaplains to support hospital staff chaplains. The philosophy is “rooted in the ageless principles of The Rule of Benedict and sustained by clinical pastoral practices.”

COHI lay chaplains at St. George are available now. If you would like to request a call from a lay chaplain, email

Back to School – Drive-Thru Blessing

By | Community | No Comments
This past Sunday, 23 families loaded up in their cars and came to the church to receive a personal blessing from Fr. Ram and some of the St. George Staff! Over 30 kids were blessed and received a sticker to place on their electronic devices to remind them to not be discouraged…for God is with them and they are prayed for and loved by their St. George family! Families were also given prayers to do at home with the kids as well as a frozen treat to cool everyone off from the blistering Texas heat! Although masks were required, we were able to see the smiles & the joy in everyone’s eyes and felt the love of St. George flowing through all of us! Our back-to-school blessing looked different than it has in the past, but the love and blessings were still abundantly present! It was so wonderful to see everyone! We look forward to the day when we can all be together again!
For those who were not able to make it and would like to receive the sticker for their electronic devices, please contact Happy Wilson at!

Immigration Ministries

By | Called to Serve | No Comments

The Diocese of West Texas has recently initiated a robust Immigration Ministry to help our brothers and sisters in Christ going through the immigration process here in the U.S. St. George’s own Bernadette Williams, Director of Music Ministry, has joined the effort to assist this diocesan ministry with Haitian families who have recently been released from the detention centers by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In coordination with the immigration agencies in South Texas, Bernadette and other volunteers have been helping in many ways. Bernadette helps with translation services for the Haitians who are not able to speak English. The group recently helped by supporting a family that was expecting to go through the process of delivering her baby at a local hospital, which can be daunting if you don’t understand our healthcare system. They help other families to find sponsors for the next step of their journey. Join us in praying for our Haitian Sisters and Brothers on this very difficult journey of their lives and praying for the continued success and support of this diocesan ministry. Contact Bernadette at for more information if you would like to be a part of this work!
