"...If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place."  ~ 2 Chronicles 7: 14-15. 

About Prayer Requests and St George's Mission

St George’s pastor was recently elected to be Bishop of Hartford and New England. Until a new pastor is assigned, priests from the Diocese of the South will come to serve services, perhaps or even likely not every week; in the absence of a priest, we will serve reader’s services.

Given these circumstances, please note the following:

  • Ordinarily, a prayer request will be honored at the next Liturgy after it is received.
  • A request for someone newly departed from this life will be honored for forty days, so please include the departure date. We do not keep track of anniversaries of deaths for those who are not members of the mission parish, so if you want us to remember someone on the anniversary, please send a request each time. Such requests will be honored at the next possible opportunity, which may not be the Sunday following the request.
  • Requests for Memorial services (Mnemosyne, Panikhida) should not be sent until further notice.
  • Please do not send requests for lighting candles through the website; if you want us to do that, please send the request in regular mail; it is appropriate to include an offering for the candle, as you would do if you were present. Such requests will be honored at the next parish service. The same applies to requests for flowers.
  • In all requests, please mention only the first name of the person for whom you request prayers (or the baptismal/chrismation name if it is different). Please do not include anything confidential, because the request will be accessed by a member of the congregation and passed on to a visiting priest on the next possible occasion.
