Welcome to St. George Catholic Church of Hartford, SD, located ten miles west of Sioux Falls, SD . Founded in 1882, we are older than the state of South Dakota and the Diocese of Sioux Falls. Though old, in 2010 we built a brand new and beautiful church to accommodate the growth of the Hartford area. We are a growing and thriving parish made up of many young families who wish to know, love, and serve God and his Church in this life and forever in the next. Currently we have 370 families and we are always adding more each month. All we need to have a perfect parish is you! Click here to learn how to join!

A Reflection from Father King

We are approaching the last week of Lent prior to beginning Holy Week on Palm Sunday. Over the past two weeks I have referred to fasting, or penance, and almsgiving which are two of the three Lenten practices. Prayer is the last of these. We have often written about prayer in the bulletin because it is so important, and many of us want to have prayer as part of our daily life but we struggle to make that a reality. Dr. Peter Kreeft writes that the key to prayer is: just do it. He writes:

The major obstacle in most of our lives to just saying yes to prayer, the most popular and powerful excuse we give for not praying, or not praying more, or not praying regularly, is that we have no time.

The only effective answer to that excuse, I find, is a kind of murder. You have to kill something, you have to say no to something else, in order to make time to pray. Of course, you will never find time to pray, you have to make time to pray. And that means unmaking something else. The only way to install the tenant of prayer in the apartment building of your life is to evict some other tenant from those premises that prayer will occupy. Few of us have any empty rooms available.

Deciding to do that is the first thing. And you probably won't decide to do it, only wish to do it, unless you see prayer for what it is: a matter of life or death, your lifeline to God, to life itself.

Once that decision has been made, we need to schedule the best time to do it and how much time we can give. Fifteen minutes is a good start and the best time is the morning. It is important to have a place at home where you can be quiet for that time you have allotted. As for how to pray – just start simple whether it be vocal prayer such as the Rosary, or quiet reading, or reading and reflection, or a combination of everything. The important thing is to start. We will finish the Busy Person’s Retreat with a guided retreat on the Sacred Heart – we will be meeting on Sunday evening at 6:00pm to discuss how to go about it. If you aren’t able to come we have the materials on our Facebook page – the daily reflections are in print or they can be read or even listened to online. This may be a great opportunity for you make the last part of Lent a time marked by prayer – raising your mind and heart to God in a heart-to-heart conversation with Him.
