Nativity Blessing and Carol Singing this Sunday at 4pm

St. George’s celebrates the birth of Jesus, with a special free community-wide gathering to bless our outdoor Nativity this Sunday, December 1, at 4pm.

Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies in the parish hall to begin. We will sing Christmas carols, hear the Christmas Story, and then we head outside to bless the display.

This is our second year for our beautiful display. Last year, we commissioned Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus to be carved by Robbin Wenzoski and his wife Laura. This year we commissioned them to create six more figures which added the three Wisemen (or magi), an Angel, a Shepherd, and a lamb.

These six new life-sized chainsaw sculpted wood figures, along with the Holy Family are now on display, but we will officially lighting up the display on December 1 as part of the “Light Up The Hills” community events in Georgetown, Acton, and Glen Williams.

The church is proud of the carving work done by Robbin and Laura Wenzoski, for the generous donors who helped fund the display, and for the project leadership of Rick Gorski, and all the volunteers who helped with the installation and lighting.
