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 Zach Krueger

This summer St. George is trying something new.  In the past we’ve brought in Totus Tuus for our summer programs, but this year we thought we would try offering something new.  So we’d like to invite any and all youth to our summer Kerygma Camps.  These are two-day events held throughout the summer geared towards helping children and teens encounter Jesus Christ and his Church in a deeper way.  The Kerygma (pronounced kor-ig-ma) is the message of our salvation preached to each individual so that they will accept the salvation of Christ.  Pope Francis wrote about this vital goal in his 2014 document, Evangeli Gaudium:  “In catechesis too, we have rediscovered the fundamental role of the first announcement or kerygma, which needs to be the center of all evangelizing activity and all efforts at Church renewal… On the lips of the catechist the first proclamation must ring out over and over: “Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you; and now he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you” (164). 

The Pope invites us all to encounter Christ in the way we hope these camps will help with: “I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord” (3).  

That is our hope at each camp: that we can propose the message of the saving grace given to us by Christ and that each camper would have the opportunity to speak with the Lord, heart to heart.  Each camp includes various activities, games, and time for reflection and prayer.  We are also offering several options for the younger children to allow for flexibility with your busy schedule.  You can register for these camps on our parish WeShare page.  We hope to see you there!

K-5th Grade Camps (both camps are different and children can attend one or both):

June 14-15 (Thurs & Fri) from 9:00am-12:00pm 

July 25-26 (Weds & Thurs) from 6:00pm-8:00pm
