Salt and Bread Service Team

St. George’s Salt and Bread Service Team is a compassionate group of people who are inspired to reach out to the poor and needy in our community and in the larger world. There are special events and ongoing activities as well. On a weekly basis we collect food for several food banks and clothes, linens, cleaning supplies, toiletries and so forth for the local shelter called “Love a Child”. Last year we had a call for medicines and supplies for a doctor going to Haiti and the response was overwhelming both in goods and donations. In the Fall we had a “Labyrinth Walk for Hunger” coinciding with World Hunger Day. Our labyrinth was lined with non-perishable food and the labyrinth walkers prayed for all the hungry of the world as they made their way through the labyrinth of food. Each December we are the “ Pie Church ” for a local organization called “Street Outreach”, providing more than 120 pies for their Christmas Party at the Antioch Fairgrounds. The whole church gets involved with the pie donation! Everyone is welcome to join our Team of loving and caring individuals. Please contact Deacon Mary Norquist Hinse for more information at 925-451-5950.

The Labyrinth Guild

Labyrinths have been in use since 1998 at St. George’s. The care and over site of the outdoor and traveling canvas labyrinths is done by The Labyrinth Guild. They also plan and facilitate events. The Guild  was founded by two Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitators from our congregation and docents that they trained. The goal of the Guild is to offer education and opportunities for individuals and groups to learn to use this ancient and powerful tool.

If you would like more information call the church office (925.432.1453) and leave us a message, and we’ll call you back. On-line you can find excellent information at The Labyrinth Society. They even have a virtual labyrinth you can use on your computer, a labyrinth locator so you can find other labyrinths to visit, and a store with many beautiful items

Green Corner - Ecological Justice Team

The Episcopal Church is deeply concerned about reconciling our relationship with the natural world in which we live.  At St. George’s we seek to educate our community about caring for the earth through recycling and responsible and simplistic living.  

We give you thanks, most gracious God, for the beauty of earth and sky and sea;
for the richness of mountains, plains, rivers and lakes; for the song of birds and the loveliness of lowers. We thank you also for all the marvelous creatures you have created to share this world with us. We praise you for these good gifts, and pray that we may safeguard them for our posterity.

Grant that we may continue to grow in our grateful enjoyment of your abundant creation, to the honor and glory of your Name, now and forever.
