Sittee's Savory Kitchen

YOU HAVE HEARD BY NOW...
...... about the Middle Eastern Salad Dressing being sold as a fund raiser? Sales officially kicked off yesterday at Norwood Day. Soon we'll be at the Farmers Markets and in the near future we are looking for even wider distribution. The Mission Statement (from the lid of the jar):
Sittee is "my grandmother" - one of countless women who, as the backbone of our community, used their culinary talents to help build and sustain our church. Sittee's Savory Kitchen honors these beloved women and their legacy by giving all proceeds to the Building Fund.



October is our month to support the Norwood Food Pantry

Please bring with you to church each week non-perishable food and personal hygiene items. They can be left in the grocery cart outside the parish hall door. A volunteer is then needed to transport everything to the Food Pantry on Thursday mornings.

Can you walk three miles? Can you pledge money to a walker? If you answer yes, join the 10th Food Pantry Walk on Saturday, October 8. It is a fundraiser for the Food Pantry of Norwood.The walk will begin and end at Grace Episcopal Church on Chapel Street. To register, phone 781 762 0959.

In the Archdiocese we celebrate Youth Month in October and we recognize our seminarians. Here at Saint George you will see our young people reading the epistle and passing the trays. On the 16th they will collect for Special Olympics.



DIOCESAN MEETINGS

Saint George Capital Campaign

Since kicking off our capital campaign on February first, we have brought in over $50,000 in pledges and donations. Not only that, we have generated many exciting conversations around the parish and around the country. We are closing this portion of our campaign at the end of this month and will then evaluate our design and financing. If you need a pledge card, they are available in the parish hall. As always, don't hesitate to ask your question of a Parish Council or Building Committee member.
