|St. George's Episcopal Church||
Today we had the pleasure of having Fr. Gamarra deliver our service. His positive energy was well received and he even tested our knowledge of previous sermons, which we failed horribly. He tied the past three sermons very well and had the congregation laughing and on their toes in case we were called upon. Fr. Gamarra joined us for brunch and conversation after the service.
Rev. Dina will be on vacation for the next three Sundays. We wish her the best during this time. During her absence, please contact Pat Powell for any pastoral emergency, 310-324-1617. We will also be fortunate to have Fr. Butch Gamarra on August 4th, Fr. Norm Ishizaki on August 11th, and Rev. Barbara Stewart on August 18th.
