On the 2nd Sunday of each month, attendees from both services enjoy a potluck Parish Breakfast between services. This is a great opportunity to share what is happening in our lives and simply catch up with each other.
While South Louisiana may be famous for Mardi Gras, Northwest Louisiana has its own celebrations, too! On Fat Tuesday, St. George’s hosts a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper where everyone enjoys pancakes and sausage before Ash Wednesday, ushering in the season of Lent.
Our ECW (Episcopal Church Women) group meets regularly for fundraising and fellowship. Fundraisers include Christmas Bazaar, Soup Days during Advent and Lent, and Spring offering envelopes. Money raised funds scholarships to Camp Hardtner and “Time for Joy” (annual women’s retreat), both sponsored by the diocese; expenses for Vacation Bible School; St. Luke’s Medical Ministry (diocesan-sponsored mobile medical outreach); Operation Santa Claus (gifts donated to two local Head Start programs); and other outreach activities headed by Deacon Lois Maberry. Fellowship time is usually a shared meal, either potluck at the church or at a nearby restaurant.
Daughters of the King

Our Margery of Kempe chapter at St. George’s was formed in June of 2021. Margery of Kempe was an Anglican mystic from the Middle Ages. In addition to having fourteen children and travelling to the Holy Land, she is believed to have dictated one of the first autobiographies in the English language.
Our chapter meets monthly; all who are interested in visiting or joining are welcome!
