St. George's Episcopal Church


Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost ~ August 30, 2020


160 U Street Washington DC 20001


This Parish of the Episcopal / Anglican Church was founded in 1930 as an Episcopal Church for African Americans. St. George's witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as expressed through the Anglican Tradition. We serve as a guiding light for our parishioners as well as the larger community.  We bid you welcome in the name of the Lord! 


Priest-in-Charge: The Rev Marilyn Jenkins


The Right Reverend Mariann Budde has graciously invited all parishes to a Diocesan-Wide virtual service. This is a gift to all clergy in the diocese as well as a gift to all members as Bishop Budde will preach with all of us in mind. Please tune into the National Cathedral on 30 August at 11:15 a.m.

This coming Sunday, we will offer a modified Office of Morning Prayer prior to the Diocesan-Wide service Bishop Budde is offering. Our service will not have a homily nor will we offer Holy Communion. Both of those will be offered by Bishop Budde.

Design a sacred space in your house for the elements.


You will receive the elements in the vessels pictured below which can be reverently stored in your sacred space.


Holy Communion


All those desiring to partake in receiving Holy Communion during our live-streamed service may pick up pre-consecrated elements at the church on Fridays between 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Or on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Please ring the bell at the side door and The Rev. Jenkins will bring you the elements. You will receive the elements in a container. Please handle the pre-consecrated elements with reverence and keep in a sacred place in your home.


We begin with Holy Communion in our Liturgy this Sunday.


If you cannot stop by the church please let The Rev Jenkins know so that delivery can be made. Please email:


158 U St. Townhouse Update

Thank You!


We are finalizing all work in the townhouse this week. Our broker has begun to advertise our offices for lease with the goal of having all offices leased to Non Profit organizations. City Farm - our current renters - will continue with us but will lease one of the bigger offices. We look forward to our continued relationship with them!

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.
