Dear St. George Families,


WOW: the auction was so much FUN!  Be sure to check out all the terrific pictures on our school Facebook and Instagram accounts. Thank you to all who came out to celebrate and raise money for St. George. More than 260 people rallied together in fellowship!

The auction committee is wrapping up the details and will come out with final numbers soon. 


Remember to ask your work place about MATHCING FUNDS. Many companies will match your donations for a double impact for St. George. Go to our website at https://www.saintgeorgeseattle.org/giving/matching for more information.

I am also extremely grateful to all the families who helped plan for and run the auction. Your more than generous donation of time, energy and procurement is greatly appreciated by us all!

Annual Day of Service: Registration Open! 

Model for your children what it means to serve others!

Our annual Day of Service is happening on Saturday, April 27, 2024.  This fun day brings together over 400 volunteers from our four South Seattle Catholic Parishes as well as Our Lady of Guadalupe and Holy Rosary in West Seattle.  We provide a variety of activities for all ages, schedules, and abilities.  Volunteers serve all over our region to help support over 25 agencies!  Signups are now open.  Visit //bit.ly/multi-parishdayofservice or sign up in the church entryway.  Middle school students can count this time for their service hours
