Informational Meeting January 9 about Confirmation Class
The next Confirmation Class at St. George's will begin in late January. There is an informational meeting on Sunday, January 9 at 11:30 am to talk about the class, answer questions, and discuss details. Anyone in high school or older (youth and adults) are invited to come and learn more. Confirmation is how one becomes an Episcopalian if you come from another tradition and is an opportunity to make an adult commitment of faith. Let Connie+ know of your interest. See you on the 9th!
Covid Protocol Updates from the Diocese of Washington
Per the latest guidance from our bishop, The Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, we are suspending hospitality for now. People are still welcome to gather, but we won't be serving food or drink until further notice due to covid concerns. Also, the bishop asks that all who attend services in person wear either a surgical mask or a KN95 mask; if you don't have one, there will be some available in the entryway to the church. If you are wearing a cloth mask, you are asked to double mask. Copies of the bishop's letter are available if you'd like to read it, or you can find it on the church website. You can also find it at the following link:
