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 Lenten calendar available below or Here's the link! 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 on our websites donation page or send a check with a notation that it is your Lenten donation. If possible, please return your donations by April 18.
Lenten Materials for Families St. George's wanted to share a special Lenten program with our parish families. Starting with Ash Wednesday, An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on the Heart includes weekly devotions, activities, and coloring pages for families to use during Lent. We sent materials in the mail, but wanted to share the link as well in case you need more copies of certain pages. Enjoy!

Information Regarding Vaccine Distribution From the Maryland Department of Health: In an effort to provide equitable access to COVID-19 vaccine information and appointments to all eligible Maryland residents, Governor Hogan has launched the COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MDGOVAX (1-855-634-6829). We invite Marylanders to call and speak with live support center advocates 7 days a week from 7am – 10pm. Support center advocates can provide information on COVID-19 and Maryland’s vaccination efforts as well as schedule vaccination appointments at the states mass vaccination sites. Residents may also receive assistance in identifying vaccine providers closest to their home. Maryland’s first mass vaccination site is located at Six Flags America at 13710 Central Avenue, Upper Marlboro, MD 20721. We urge residents with transportation to and from the facility to call in and schedule vaccination appointments as they become available.
