As of now, services and activities are suspended and will resume May 16th
We are currently working on being able to offer services remotely.
Church meetings will go on as scheduled, but we will hold them remotely, including the Vestry meeting on Tuesday the 17th.
Ever wish for a way to disconnect from the busy-ness, take a “time out” and reconnect with what really matters in life? If so, be a part of Saint George’s Parish Retreat at The Claggett Center in Adamstown (Frederick County), Maryland. We’ll begin with dinner on Friday, April 17 and stay until mid-morning on Sunday, April 19. The cost is $258 for a single room and $228 per person ($456 total) for a double room.
Scholarship assistance is available, so do not let finances stand in your way. A sign-up sheet is on the church bulletin board. Stay tuned for further information, and check in with Margaret McHale if you have any questions in the meantime. And remember: it’s a Saint George’s event, so you know it will be a good time!
It is the tradition of St. George’s, in keeping with the Lenten theme of giving, to make a special offering during the season of Lent. Each person is invited to give fifty cents a day, or $20 over the season of Lent, to an organization that helps those in need, as recommended by St. George’s Outreach and Social Justice committee. This year, we will support World Central Kitchen. World Central Kitchen is a non-profit, founded by local Chef Jose Andres, that provides meals and help to people in crisis. While best known for their amazing effort feeding people in Puerto Rico after the hurricanes, they operate wherever they see a need. In the past year that included responding to 13 disasters, some natural and some man-made. They served food to children on our southern border, responded to crisis in places like Indonesia and Australia, and are right now on the ground in Japan providing food to quarantined travelers.
