St. George's Lenten Outreach Project Please support a local Social Service agency this Lent. This year our Lenten collection is offered for the benefit of Community Crisis Services Inc. (CCSI). CCSI manages the Warm Nights Shelter, a domestic violence assistance program and a 24 hour crisis hotline. There is a calendar available on the website announcements page to show the offering options and daily prayer and meditation reflections. We hope you use the calendar as a reminder of our Lenten outreach to support CCSI and its clients. Your donations can help many of our neighbors in Prince George’s County. A donation of 50 cents a day for each of the 40 days of Lent will provide $20 to help others, and $1.00 a day will total $40. At the end of Lent, please make your donation online at stgeorgesglenndale.org or send a check with a notation that it is your Lenten donation. If possible please return your donations by April 18.
