St. George Squires

St. George Squires

    The St. George Squires is the name of the parishioners that have pledged their time and talent for maintenance, repair, and upkeep.

    The parish is a large organization that has many responsibilities, with the most important being spiritual worship and growth of parishioners and the education of our children in the faith.

    Along with that, the facilities have many moving parts and must be cared for; some are minor in nature, while others are larger and more expensive projects. With parish and school money being limited, the current process involves reporting the needed repair to the principal or pastor, who then need to find the appropriate competent to evaluate and decide if funds are available, etc. The process for repairs can be lengthy.

    The St. George Squires will focus on minor repairs, improvements for moderate projects that can be handled without issues and meet deadlines without delay.

    The Squires is a connected group through emails, texts and Facebook with the main contact email of ("St. George Squires") to ensure good coordination.

    Any parishioner, visitor, parent, staff, teacher or even student can email a repair request to the "St. George Squires" email, where together with other members of the Squires, can evaluate and prioritize the project, place it on the Master Repair Plan, assign a repair cost, special skill, tools required and a time frame for repair. This evaluating team would meet 2-3 weeks before every work day to update the Master Repair Plan, which would then be sent out to all the Squires. The "St. George Squires" email can also email any "reporting person" back so they know a project request has been received and will be addressed. Later, that same "reporting person" can be kept informed of the progress, disposition or completion of the project. Provided the cost does not exceed $100, the Squires can proceed immediately with the repair. They should, however, keep the Pastor and Principal informed. Any larger projects will require approval by the Pastor.

    The Master Repair Pan would be maintained on the parish website to allow both the Squires and other parishioners to see the list of projects underway, as well as the skills and materials needed for any particular project. Prior to a scheduled work day, the Squires would email who is coming, what they can work on, and what they will bring. The St. George Squires evaluation team can also offer suggestions from skilled labor and professionals, coordinate projects that intersect each other, keep track of extra material, and even combine orders for material to make the process more efficient.
