Lessons and Carols 2022: Photos of Our Return to St. George's Episcopal Church
Katie Morton


Our St. George's community gathered at St. George's Episcopal Church for our first in-person Lessons and Carols service since December of 2019. What a special evening it was!

Read Dr. Kreutziger's welcome below and his holiday letter to the community (linked here):

"Welcome, all, to our Lessons and Carols service at St. George’s Church after three long years! I am not missing virtual church services this evening! From scripture readings to singing to performances of our Orff ensembles, to celebrating our first Christmas service together here with our new rector of St. George’s, the Reverend Stephanie Fox, to our special recognitions for exemplary service to our presentation of the Lelong Family Betsey King Award for Faculty Excellence—well,  there’s so much to celebrate and look forward to this eve before our dismissal for the winter holidays. It is truly a blessing to be here."

During this joyous season, we wish you and your loved ones the happiest of holidays, filled with God’s blessing, special moments and fond memories to last you throughout the new year.

The Lelong Family Betsey King Award for Faculty Excellence

In 2013, Bruce and Lynn Lelong generously established the Lelong Family Fund as part of the St. George’s Endowment. From this fund, the Betsey King Award was founded. The award pays tribute to Betsey as the founding head of St. George’s, as a dedicated teacher, as an enthusiastic fundraiser, and as a staunch proponent for the education of children. The Lelong Family Betsey King award is presented annually to a faculty member who is making a difference daily in the lives of their students, in the classroom and beyond. The recipient’s teaching must provide a strong foundation in students that will lead them to success. This only happens through an expertise in education and teaching, a dedication to students and their individual needs, strong partnership with parents and colleagues, and going above and beyond to support the mission of the school.
