Caring & Praying

Caring & Praying

We believe in the power of prayer and compassion.  

At St. George's we feel called to be "God's hands and feet in the world", bringing the care and uplifting comfort of God's presence to those in need.  We do this in a variety of ways, and we will gladly pray and care for you or anyone you know who is in need.

 

Prayer Ministries

We have two ways that we pray for people who are in need.  The first is the Sunday prayer list, by which we pray for people by first name only, trusting God to know what their needs are.  The second is the Prayer Chain, a dedicated group of people who have convenanted to pray intensely and confidentially for people who wish more detailed prayers for their situation.  You can choose how much information to share with the Prayer Chain about your exact circumstances.  Then the Prayer Chain will pray for your concern every day, if need be, for a prolonged period of time. 

If you have a prayer request, please contact the Church Office at 403-280-3579, or by using the form below.

 

Laying on of Hands & Annointing with Holy Oil

On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we offer a "healing service", which includes a ministry of Laying on of Hands and the ministry of Annointing with Holy Oil.  The Laying on of Hands is for anyone who feels the need for prayers to uphold them during times of struggle, or to uphold their loved ones.  This happens during Communion.  At the end of the service, the Priest will remain at the Altar rail, ready to offer Annointing with Oil to any who wish.  You can read more about what these ministries are by clicking the link on the left-side menu.

All are welcome to come forward to receive the Laying on of Hands or Annointing with Oil.

 

Pastoral Care

We offer compassionate pastoral care to those living through challenging times.  

We know that it is not possible for everyone to come out to church, due to advanced age or illness.  The Priest works together with a dedicated team of lay people to make sure that these folks receive caring support. At the end of service at St. George's, you'll often see people come forward and take a Home Communion box; they then visit with the sick and shut-ins in our parish to ensure that they remain part of our church family and are not forgotten.

If you or someone you know needs caring support please call the Church Office at 403-280-3252 or use the form below.

Care Request

We welcome your requests for prayer or for pastoral care.  If your request is confidential, kindly phone the Church Office and leave a message for the Priest: 403-280-3579 ext. 1
