AS DEVOTED AND RESPECTFUL PARISHIONERS OF ST. GEORGE
Please be considerate and make room in the pews for others. If you insist on keeping the end of the pew, please be aware of others looking for a seat and step out to allow them to enter. Those in the stasidia must step down onto the floor as follows: *When the Gospel is being read, *During the Small and Great entrances, *During Holy Communion. It is disrespectful to stand higher than the Holy Gifts. Please instruct your children in this discipline as well.
PROCEDURE FOR HOLY COMMUNION DISMISSAL
In order to insure proper reverence for the Holy Gifts before us,
1) Please exit FROM YOUR ROW, row by row into the CENTER AISLE.
2) Only Newly Illumin`-ed Christians, infants from the crying room, Sunday School teachers and their families, and the Choir proceed from the back rope-FIRST.
PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF THE PARISH COUNCIL WHO ARE MAINTAINING ORDER FOR YOUR PRAYERFUL APPROACH.
