Did you know that the local St. George's Episcopal Church began as a parochial mission way back in mid-1958? The mission purchased land where the church now stands and opened its chapel-size sanctuary in 1962. Its first vicar was the Rev. Oswald Jefferson who accepted a call to Claremont after one year of service and was replaced by the Rev. Joseph Redinger, who became a prominent figure. The church's first headquarters office temporarily opened in early 1960 before a permanent church site was found.

On Sunday morning a celebration took place at St. George's Episcopal Church in La Cañada that included gifts, cake and a bounce house. It may sound like a birthday party, but in fact it was all for the installation of Rev. Amy Pringle as the seventh rector of the church. The church has been without a permanent minister since Rev. John Day left in the summer of 2004. Pringle was first brought in two years ago as an interim minister for a few months, then as priest in charge.

The Right Reverend J. Jon Bruno visited St. George’s Episcopal Church in La Cañada on Sunday and presided over the worship service. This was the bishop’s annual visit to the church, where he called Rev. Amy Pringle, “one of the best” rectors. On a typical Sunday, the children of St. George’s begin each service in the church with their families; they are given a blessing then sent off to Sunday School. But this Sunday with the bishop in attendance, the children got a little history lesson before their school.

Lent is the 40-day season leading up to Easter; a time of strict spiritual examination and renewal. It’s most famous for people “giving things up for Lent” — chocolate, caffeine, swearing, and other sinful delights — and sometimes fasting, at least from meat, on Fridays (in honor of Good Friday, when Jesus was crucified). Most churches clear out the flowers and frilly decorations during Lent, and suspend the use of “Alleluia” and other happy words of praise.

Three teenage visitors from Leech Lake Reservation American Indian reservation in South Dakota and a 23-year-old visitor from Sacramento joined the service at St. George's Episcopal Church in La Cañada Sunday as their Los Angeles trip came to an end. The teens were part of a mission that was brought to the Los Angeles area by Reverend Robert Two Bulls. Two Bulls, a minister that now serves in Minnesota, is originally from the Pine Ridge Reservation in Red Shirt, South Dakota. He was first introduced to the St. George congregation when he served as associate pastor at the church several years ago. During his time as pastor he spoke of his tribe, Oglala Lakota, and how they lived in Red Shirt.
