Parades are always fun and who doesn’t love a parade? St. George’s loves parades and we will be marching in the Greenbelt Labor Day Parade on Monday, September 5, 2016, starting at 10:00 AM. We’re registered, we have our truck, soon we will have our giveaways, but we need you to be there!
The route itself is a 1.5 mile route up Crescent Road starting from near Buddy Attick Park and ending at the Roosevelt Center. We will have our bouncy balls and pin-wheels available to hand out to the crowds, and I am crossing my fingers for cooler weather but at least the parade route has lots of shade.
Once we reach the end you’re right there at the festival where you can hop on carnival rides, enjoy great food, check out the book sale, or listen to live music. So mark your calendars and come on out on what should be a beautiful September morning to show your St. George’s pride (wear your T-shirt!) to the community of Greenbelt and beyond.
Bring some comfy shoes and wear your St. Georges T-shirt if you have one. If you have any questions, please speak with Michael Mangiapane.

Calling all Parishioners! Please mark your calendars on Saturday, September 17, for the end of summer Church Work Day: Parish Clean-Up. Weather permitting, we’ll be doing work inside and outside the church buildings, starting about 10:00 AM and planning to finish around late afternoon, approximately 3:00 PM. A sign-up sheet for each of the projects is posted on the bulletin board in the narthex, with a large variety of ways to help, ranging from a deep detail clean of the parish kitchen to removal of debris from the parish grounds and parking lot. The Buildings and Grounds Committee hopes you can join us for any part of the day – many hands make lighter work. Thank you for considering helping our efforts to keep the church clean and in good repair.
