PWRDF is supporting Ukrainians forced to flee their homes due to the Russian invasion. The above link will take you directly to their site where you can read about how they are supporting the people through temporary shelter and emergency food and supplies. Donations made through PWRDF can be made here. This is the preferred method but you may donate through the church. Ensure that your donation is clearly marked. During the month of March over $1200 was donated through the parish alone.
The members of the Parish of Georgina believe that we are called by God to reach out into the world.
This is a very important part of who we are and what we do.
When a need arises the members step forward to do whatever is needed.
Additional outreach during the COVID-19 lockdown was provided to River Glen Haven staff, Georgina Community Food Pantry, Sandgate Shelter for Women, Faithworks and the Families made homeless due to the townhouse fire on May 26th, 2020 in Sutton.

Prayer is a priority of the parish. We endeavor to live as a family of God, in work and worship. At both churches, intercessory prayer is an important part of the service. Parishioners, local residents, and visitors are urged to bring their prayer requests to the Prayer Desk at St. Georges, the service prayers through the church office, or through the Prayer Chain.
