Community Building

Saint George Church is the chartered organization which sponsors both Boy Scout Troop 471 and Cub Pack 471. The Boy Scouts of America was founded in 1910 and is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent value-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. This organization believes that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible and productive society.

The Knights of Columbus were founded in 1882 by a 29-year old parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven. They grew into the largest lay organization of the Catholic Church. In the past decade the Knights have donated about $1 billion and have volunteered more than 400 million hours to charitable causes.

The St George Council supports the parish and community by hosting the annual St. George Carnival, hosting monthly coffee and pastry Sundays after Mass and cooking for many parish functions. The knights also contribute in both manpower and monetary gifts to the parish in addition to Connecticut Special Olympics, SARAH and college scholarship programs for local graduates.

The Saint George Men’s Group (SGMG) is comprised of gentlemen from the parish and surrounding community who all have a common goal: to answer the call for social justice through good works. Our organization is nimble in its operation: resourceful, pulling on the talents of all members; Faith-based, recognizing the call of the Gospel to help a neighbor in need and apolitical, leaving our outside views at the door.
To date, the SGMG has raised and donated close to $300,00 to various local and national charities through social events like the St. Patrick’s Day Dance, Kentucky Derby Dinner, Charity Golf Tournaments, Nostalgic Drive-In Movie Night and the popular Italian Fest. With direction from our pastor and Guilford Social services, the SGMG has also performed numerous “acts of kindness,” providing various types of assistance to community members in true need. We would like to offer a special thanks to all the parishioners, community members and sponsors who have supported us over the years. Without your help we would not be so successful!
