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!
Help the Youth Group continue to raise money for their summer Mission Trip to Puerto Rico by displaying your secret (or not so secret) talent on Sunday March 18th at 4pm! Talents can last from 5 seconds to 5 minutes! The show is pay what you will. The sign-up fee to display your talent is $5. This show is hosted by Kate Berry and emceed by Rebekah Rowe! Please come out and show us your talents!
The choir of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, College Park is presenting a service of Choral Evensong on Sunday March 4 at 4 pm, and we are invited! If you aren’t familiar with this service, it is a traditional Episcopal prayer service, in which most of the service is sung rather than spoken. The St. Andrew’s Choir will sing pieces they are preparing for a Pilgrimage to sing in residency at Norwich Cathedral in 2019, including the Evening Canticles of Herbert Murrill in E. The service will feature a new setting of the Preces and Responses composed especially for the choir by Organist & Choirmaster David Houston.
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. Lenten Offering envelopes are still available for anyone who would like to support this Lenten outreach project. You can bring in your offerings on Easter Sunday April 1.
Please join Sarah O’Brien on Thursday, March 8th at 7pm for shared prayer, stillness and group reflection in the church sanctuary. No experience with contemplative prayer is needed for you to attend these facilitated circles. This offering is open to the public.
