Easter Donations There are two ways to support St. George’s this Easter Season. One is to consider making a donation for the Easter flowers. You can thank God for an event or person in your life, or remember someone who has passed away. Please clearly note if names are for memorials and/or thanksgivings. And please let us know your donation is specifically for Easter flowers. All names will be listed in the Easter Bulletin. You may give the names of the persons you wish to remember, either by note, email at email@example.com or phone 301-262-3285. To be included in the Easter Bulletin, names must be submitted by Sunday, March 28. Another way is to make a special Easter donation to St. George’s, we would be most grateful. If you send a check to our PO Box, please write “Easter” in the memo line. If you send a contribution via Zelle, please put "Easter" in the comment box. If you use our online donation page, enter your donation amount in the box next to "Special Holy Day Donation" and write "Easter" in the text box. Thank you!
Sandwich Making for Warm Nights The Justice League will be starting up a new season of making lunches for guests of Warm Nights. We will begin on Saturday, March 27th, and continue through the month of April. Once again we will meet on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am until 11:00 am to make 135 sandwiches. We will need 10 volunteers to work, wearing masks and practicing social distancing. We will also need donations of water bottles to go into the lunch bags. Please sign up here so that you can volunteer. We look forward to seeing many friendly faces back at St. George’s working for others.
