St. George Church School will begin on Sunday, Sept. 8.
After the liturgy there will be a service of the invocation of the Holy Spirit upon the teachers and students followed by an introduction class in church.
Church school classes will be every Sunday, unless it is previously cancelled, after holy communion. Church school children should take holy communion regularly and confession monthly.
