Event Calendar

Parish Outreach

Sycamore (formerly SICM) Summer Lunch Program – St Georges is again supporting the Summer lunch program. Volunteers are needed to help serve lunch to children who are out of school for the summer. We are committed to August 19-23 at the Schenectady Public Library. A sign up sheet is available in the back of the church. Volunteers will need to complete paperwork and view a training video.  Please speak to our outreach coordinator Paul Smigelski for more information!

YWCA SHELTER — September 8th will be our next quarterly donation for the YWCA emergency shelter. Thank you to all who have contributed to our parish outreach. This continuing ministry supports women and children who have escaped from an unsafe environment and arrive with nothing. The need is great and is ongoing. At this time, the YWCA tells us they are in most need of personal hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, menstrual products, etc. Also need children’s underwear – all sizes.
