This Sunday: Worship Service at the National Cathedral on August 29, 2021 at 11:15 AM St. George’s will not have any in-person services on this Sunday. There are a few ways to attend and enjoy this diocesan wide service. St. George’s will have a Watch Party to join together and view the service via Zoom.

Labor Day Parade-updated 8/22 St. George's will be participating in the Greenbelt Labor Day Parade on Monday, September 6. The parade starts at 10 AM at the usual spot on Crescent Road near Greenbelt Lake. Besides folks to walk in the parade we are looking for a vehicle so others can ride if needed. If you'd like more information, please contact Michael Mangiapane at email@example.com
In-Person Hospitality In person hospitality is being held outdoors-outside the front of the church. We could use a volunteer for September 5 after the 10 am service. It looks like we are fine for snacks and drinks and just need someone to set up and clean up. If you can volunteer please let Ames Perry know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks. Reminder: This will occur weather permitting.
Welcome to Our New Interim Office Administrator Kathleen We are pleased to share the news that we have an office administrator, Kathleen Haley who begins officially on Monday August 30.

School Supplies Drive We are currently conducting our annual school supplies drive for Gaywood Elementary School and have asked that St Georgians purchase a backpack and fill it with specific supplies based on lists by grade provided by Gaywood. This year’s lists are longer and more specific than last year’s, and while we hope many of you will choose to fill a backpack for a student in a specific grade, we understand this may present a challenge for some parishioners. If you'd like to support the supplies drive but can't fill a backpack, please feel free to purchase and donate what you can; here is a general list of items that all or most grades require to guide you. If you fill a backpack for a specific grade, please be sure to label the backpack as to what grade it's intended for. School starts September 8 and we'd like to deliver the backpacks before then, so filled backpacks should be dropped off at St George’s as soon as possible, but no later than Sunday, September 5; you can also contact Donna Haselton at email@example.com to make other arrangements. Thank you for supporting the students and families of Gaywood!
LEMs Announcement The Lay Eucharistic Ministry (LEMs) at St. George’s needs a few more volunteers. The LEMs read the Prayers of the People during the 10am service and stand at the cup station during Communion and say “Blood of Christ, Cup of Salvation” to people as they take the Blood of Christ. This is an important ministry in the parish ad we would love for others to get involved. If you can help or have questions, please contact Helen Rowe at firstname.lastname@example.org
