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

Over the past weeks Zach Krueger and Zach Schaefbauer (who were known during the summer as Zach the Greater and Zach the Lesser) wrote about the important mission to invite people to baptism or into the Church. I hope that you found some ideas in those articles helpful, and that the articles will have encouraged you to go out and speak to people about your faith and the Church.

I wanted to make clear that I am not asking you to go to complete strangers to invite them to receive Baptism. What we are talking about is inviting people you already know well and have good friendships with. A good friend is one who seeks the good for their friend, and what better good is there than that they receive the life of grace through the sacraments and the teachings of the Church which all build up the divine life that God gives us in Baptism. It is a true and sincere friendship along with the testimony of a life lived in accord with the teachings of Christ that will move a person to consider and eventually decide to receive the sacraments and be received into the Church.

In our world today, we are in contact with many people who do not know of Jesus or do not have a strong connection to Him. They may have heard of Him or occasionally frequent a church, but for more and more people that connection with Christ is becoming ever more uncertain. Different surveys show that they do not want to be without God, but they do not know where to turn. The Church does not seem an option either through the recent scandals and the frequently aired doubts that they hear. Our society is not an ally in helping people to believe in God. For them, the words of a friend will be appreciated and respected. So, I hope you will not feel daunted by this invitation to invite people to the Church – your intervention may be secretly desired by your friend. Do not be afraid!
