St. George's Oral History Project

 

 

A fabulous thing happened at St. George's on Wednesday afternoon. A knock at the door brought an unexpected surprise. Two art historians from Lithuania who are studying the work of our artist/sculptor who created our Stations of the Cross, our altar, pulpit, ambry, and candelabras asked if they could come in and see his work. They were in DC to specifically look at his work and St. George's was on their places to see.

 

They graciously gave permission for an impromptu interview. We now have more information for our Oral History Documentary.

 

Many thank to all who are capturing St. George's history in the oral tradition!

Outreach: Serving the Community

 

 

Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.
