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

In just two weeks we will be about to celebrate Christmas. This is a short Advent which means that it will be particularly busy for many of you as pre-Christmas celebrations get crammed into a shorter schedule. In the midst of the activity I hope that you will be able to find time to rest both in body and in soul.

Msgr. Charles Pope of Washington wrote this brief reflection on Advent and the Advent Wreath. The Advent Wreath, like every Christmas and Advent tradition has a meaning that can help us to see the meaning of this time:

Late autumn and early winter are times of great seasonal change. The leaves turn brilliant colors, then fade and fall. Shadows lengthen as the days grow shorter and colder. Vacations and the warmth of summer are distant memories and we are reminded once again that the things of this world last but a moment and then pass away. Even so, we look forward as well. Christmas can be a wonderful time of year. Likewise, the winter ahead has its delights. Few can deny the mesmerizing beauty of falling snow and the childlike excitement a winter storm can arouse. Advent draws us spiritually into this season of change, longing, and expectation. As the days grow shorter and the darkness increases we light candles on our Advent wreaths and remember that Jesus is the true light of the world, the light that shines in the darkness. These lit candles also symbolize our ongoing commitment to come out of the darkness into God’s own marvelous light (cf 1 Peter 2:9). There is a gospel song that says, “Walk in the light, beautiful light, come where the dewdrops of mercy shine bright.”

Coming out of the darkness into God’s own marvelous light is most especially achieved through the sacrament of confession. We will have a Penitential Service next Sunday as well as confessions every evening during the week before Christmas. I hope that you will be able to find the time to come to the sacrament of God’s mercy where the life of grace is restored and strengthened.
