A Jeffersonville Community Blood Drive will be proudly sponsored by Saint George’s Church in their Community Hall (on the side of the church) at 97 Schoolhouse Road in Jeffersonville on Wednesday, August 18th from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This important event was moved from the 1st Presbyterian Church due to the large number of wonderful people donating their lifesaving blood. Many thanks to all that have participated and continue to sign up!

Please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make your lifesaving appointment today! Maximize your blood donation. Help more patients. If you are an eligible type O, B-or A-donor, consider making a Power Red donation. Red blood cells are the most commonly transfused blood component.

More news from Saint George’s RC Church, Fr Vu retired on July 1st and moved to Arlington, TX to be near his family. He served the Catholic parish of St George-St Francis in Jeffersonville and Youngsville for 17 1/2 years, and will be sorely missed.

Their new pastor, Fr Roland Antony Raj, comes to them originally from India, but for the past six years served at Blessed Sacrament Church in Staten Island. We hope that he receives a warm welcome, not only from the parish, but from the entire Jeffersonville community as our newest neighbor!
