Advent Activities at St. George’s

The season of Advent is here and with it comes a variety of activities to prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of our Lord. Here is a list of  events at St. George’s that are sure to put anyone in the spirit of the season. Join us for any and all:

The Greening of the Church Saturday, December 2nd at 10:00 am

Advent Wreath-making Sunday, December 3rd at 11:15 am

Refreshments will be served.  If you have any questions , please contact Diane Clark (see above). We look forward to seeing you again this year!

An Advent Quiet Morning Saturday, December 9th at 8:45 am

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of this season can be overwhelming — at the very least, distracting us from the miracle that is about to take place. From 8:45 until 12 noon on Saturday, December 9th St. George’s will offer several hours of quiet in the Sanctuary. Please join us for this restorative time. For more information, call the Office at 301/262-3285 or e-mail








ECQ Meets Tuesday, November 28th

The ECQ Book Group will meet Tuesday evening November 28th at 7:00 pm. This month the group will be reading and discussing  American Requiem by James Carroll. This memoir recounts the story of a young priest whose relationship with his father, a career military man,  is effected by the Vietnam war. If time allows, the group will also discuss last month’s book David Steindle-Rast, Essential Writings edited by C. Hallward. All are welcome to join the group–discussions are lively and informative.
