Thank you to everyone who donated detergent for our Gaywood Food Program families. Another need which our families have that falls outside the scope of the Food Program is toiletries. For the next few weeks, we will be collecting shampoo, bar soap, body wash, deodorant, toothpaste, and other toiletries, and we ask that you consider picking something up the next time you’re at the grocery store, Target, etc. Thank you for your generosity and for enabling us to help these families!

Join us on Sunday, April 22nd, as we celebrate St. George’s Day and start a conversation about what we envision for our future.

So bring a dish to share and join us for food and discussion!
Bring in Your Lenten Offering for Operation Agua
This year our Lenten Offering will go to Operation Agua, an organization devoted to bringing clean drinking water to Puerto Ricans whose homes were devastated by Hurricane Maria. Bring in your offerings and place them in the offering basket.
The next ECQ book club meeting is on the fourth Tuesday of April at 10 AM. Having canceled the March meeting due to weather, we will be discussing last month’s selection, A Wrinkle in Time by M. L’Engle. As time permits, we will also discuss The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics and the Rise of a New Justice Movement, by Rev. W. J. Barber II, or reserve that discussion for the May meeting. Questions? Ask Mary Frances Bruce.
The St George’s Yard Sale will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. We are looking for donations and volunteers to help out with this event.

Thinking about participating in the March for Our Lives, a gathering of people who want action to limit gun violence? A group of St. Georgians will travel to the March and walk together. We have the opportunity to join the official Episcopal Diocese of Washington contingent, which will assemble at The Church of the Epiphany, 1317 G Street, NW, between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. The Church is a short walk from Metro Center or Gallery Place.
If you’d like to join, we’ll be gathering at Greenbelt station, with plans to leave at 8:45 am for the March. The March officially begins at noon. Be sure to have your farecard ahead of time in case the station is jam-packed. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex where you can indicate your intention to join the group. Please check the St. George’s Facebook page for updates during the week.
Have you read A Wrinkle in Time? Is it your favorite childhood book? Whether you love it or you’ve just heard of it, please join us for a discussion of the classic book in Miller Hall on March 20. It promises to be a great discussion. And you’ll be ready to see the movie!
