Chapter III: Our Commitment to justice and those who are marginalized.
The collect of St. George states, "As a savior of the enslaved…” This passage from the collect alludes to Saint George having transcended the torments he received while imprisoned by Emperor Diocletian. While tortured, Saint George refused to renounce Christ and demonstrated his commitment to Christianity. Saint George knew what it meant to stand up to injustice and refused to back down from the tyranny espoused by Diocletian. The resolve of Saint George to stand up against the forces who would oppress him, and the early Christian community is mirrored in the commitment of The Community of Saint George in that we too oppose injustice in the world through our advocacy and example.
