Masses will be live streamed on the St. George Catholic Church facebook page at the normal daily mass times. Weekend masses will be live streamed on Sunday mornings at 10 AM.

Confessions will be heard on Saturdays from 5 - 6 PM in the parking lot behind church. Drive up to Father and confess from your car window through a screen.

Ways to tithe:

  • 1. Switch to online giving (either credit card or ACH/bank account). Form can be found here
  • 2. Mail your tithe to the Parish Office: PO Box 49, Linn, MO 65051
  • 3. Legends Bank has offered that our parishioners are welcome to drop their tithe into the night deposit slot at their main bank location and they will collect for the Parish

The official daily prayer of the Church is called the Liturgy of the Hours and consists of five prayer times throughout the day:

  • Office of Readings
  • Morning Prayer
  • Day Prayer
  • Evening Prayer
  • Night Prayer

It is primarily composed of Psalms, a brief Scripture reading, and intercessions. Point your smart phone at this QR code and a pdf of the prayer for that time of day will automatically come up on your phone. Pray well!

Message from Father Dan Merz

Saint George! A saint, a parish, a school. Nearly 150 years of holiness, sacraments, and education.

Saint George! We are a family of faith, a community of service…and a field hospital for sinners--and every one of us who joins St. George belongs to that family, is wanted for that service, and is in need of that hospital.       Read More

Practical Tips

  1. If you are asked to telework, find a routine and pace that allows for the most productivity, yet does not overwhelm you. Be sure to distance your personal and professional lives at your new “home office.”
  2. Be conscious of your mental health during this time of great anxiety. Be kind to yourself, be calm, and be patient with yourself and others. Consider this online mental health support resource.
  3. Keep in touch with friends and family, especially if you or they live alone.
  4. Offer to help neighbors and friends who might need assistance with shopping.
  5. Incorporate some exercise into your day. Many gyms and apps are offering free services.
  6. Learn something new and take time to explore your hobbies that you haven’t had time for until now.
  7. Utilize the public library’s online content and eBooks.
  8. Spring cleaning! Work on fixing up or organizing an area of the house.

Practical Tips for Families

  1. Establish your new family schedule– allow kids to have a real impact on what their days are going to look like. Be intentional about things like screen time, getting outside, and physical activity.
  2. It’s a great time to teach everyone in the family to cook! There are great things like homemade pasta that you probably never have time to make.
  3. Have a family dance party!
  4. Have a kid that hasn’t learned to ride a bike yet? This is the perfect time.
  5. With the library closed, take advantage of their free services like Hoopla and Overdrive to have access to eBooks and audiobooks.
  6. Nature hiking.
  7. Start indoor seeds (Now is a great time! Get some native wildflower seeds or vegetable seeds and start them inside and they will be ready to plant in May!)
  8. Spring cleaning! Work on fixing up or organizing an area of the house.
  9. Painting (outside if it’s nice).
  10. Have the kids prepare a play to perform in the evening.
  11. Using a platform like Nextdoor, organize people to place something in their windows so that families can go walking around the neighborhood and count how many they can find.
  12. Build a fort!
  13. Have a formal tea party one afternoon.
  14. Do an elaborate baking project and share it on social media.
  15. Use up all of those art and craft kits that have collected from your kids’ birthdays!
  16. Play 1 board game as a family each week
  17. Look up 1 new card game each week and play it.

Reach Out!

  1. Call or email (or socially network with) your parents and grandparents, relatives, and any friends who may feel isolated, living alone, or who may be susceptible to the Coronavirus to provide a kind word, to see what help they need, or to provide your love and support in these challenging days.
  2. Offer to get groceries or other necessities for those who cannot go out.
  3. Check on friends who live alone to see if they need anything.
  4. Have compassion for those most at risk and advocate for vulnerable populations in society (the elderly, those in poverty, homeless persons, persons with disabilities, those already sick or hospitalized, those with compromised immune systems, among others)
