Programs and Groups:


Altar Servers

Altar Servers assist the priest/celebrant at Mass. At special celebrations, such as weddings, funerals and Holy Days, altar servers will assist and need to know the special liturgical rites and rituals.

Cub Scouts

Community Cub Pack 4802 is an interfaith Pack sponsored by the Saint George Catholic Church. It offers a Cub Scout program for boys in Grades 1-5. Usually there are three den meetings (by grade level) and one Pack meeting a month.

First grade boys are Tiger Cubs and must have an adult partner with them at all den and pack meetings − usually a parent, but at times the partner has been a grandparent. The Den meetings are a shared leadership, meaning each family takes turns hosting the meetings for a month at a time.

Second grade boys are Wolves, while third grade boys are Bears. Fourth & fifth grade boys are Webelos. Fifth grade boys are able to earn the highest rank in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light award.

All meet with a respective Den Leader and Assistant Den Leader on a day and time of the week that is most convenient for the Den families. Then, all come together once a month for the Pack meeting where boys are recognized for the achievements they have accomplished during the month. Pack meetings are a family affair − parents are an important part of the awards ceremony.

Pack meeting is the 4th Thursday of the month at 7:00pm ... except for November, December, and May, when it is the 3rd Thursday, at Kuzy Hall at 6:30pm.

Each level of Cub Scouts has its own handbook with the required achievements needing to be completed in order to earn awards and rank advancement. Many of the Achievements are worked on during the Den meetings; however, not everything can be accomplished during the Den meetings so the boys need support form home.

Pack 4802 is a “uniformed” unit; therefore leaders are expected to be in scout uniforms. The boy’s uniform is scout shirt, neckerchief, slide, socks and belt. Since the boys grow so quickly, we do not require the scout pants during this age frame.

Pack 4802 follows BSA Policy of Two Deep Leadership. If there is a time when there is not an assistant Den leader, parents are asked to rotate turns to assist at Den meetings.

Parents are encouraged to become a part of the leadership of the Pack. To do so, one needs to complete a BSA registration form and a background check is completed. Registered leaders are expected to complete BSA Basic Training. Monthly Scout Round Tables are a means of continuing training for the month's theme. Program Guides are available.

The Pack also holds a monthly committee meeting a week prior to the Pack Meeting to insure a quality program for the boys.

The registration fee for either scout or adult is $24 per year. A prorated fee is applied for the boys/adults who join during the year.

Ministry to the Sick

Our Goal is to provide presence, prayer and administer Communion to parishioners who are home-bound or residents of local nursing homes. As our parish community grows, so grows our need for compassionate and faithful people to fulfill this very rewarding ministry.

The Sacrament of Healing, which can only administered by a Priest, is given periodically to all shut-ins.

St. George Catholic Women’s Group

St. George Catholic Women’s Group (SGCWG) is dedicated to providing spiritual and social support for each other and all members of our parish and community. Our numerous activities include spiritual retreats and presentations, monthly meetings and luncheons, a Christmas toy drive for the San Pablo Mission in Beryl Junction, annual “Diaper Drive” for the Hope Pregnancy Care Center, annual Palm Sunday Bake Sale, and a Food4Kids drive for needy children in our local schools. We also provide receptions following funerals and other parish events. Our Sunshine and Hospitality Committee makes monthly visits to parishioners in local hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers and the veterans’ home in Ivins, and provides prayer shawls and other items of support and sympathy for the sick and bereaved.

Engagement in the greater community of Catholic women throughout Southwestern Utah, the Diocese of Salt Lake City, and the entire nation is a great source of inspiration and strength. SGCWG is part of the Southwestern Deanery of the Diocese of Salt Lake City Council of Catholic Women (DCCW). Besides our own activities, we participate in spiritual retreats and other activities sponsored by the Southwestern Deanery, giving us an opportunity to interact with Catholic women from Christ the King Church in Cedar City, St. Christopher’s Church in Kanab, and St. Paul’s Catholic Center in Hurricane. Every April, we attend the statewide DCCW Convention in Salt Lake City and organize the selection of St. George’s Catholic Woman of the Year, who represents our parish at the Convention. The National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) is an association of Catholic women from every diocese of the United States. Our members are invited to fill leadership roles in the Deanery, diocesan and national councils.

St. George Catholic Women’s Group meets in Kuzy Hall at 6:30 pm on the first Tuesday of every month. Please join us there or at the monthly luncheons announced in the parish bulletin.
