Feast of the Transfiguration

Today August 6, 2020


August 6 is the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which commemorates Jesus’ unveiling as the Son of God, and his radical change of appearance while in the presence of Peter, James and John on a mountaintop.


O God, who on the holy mount revealed to chosen witnesses your well-beloved Son, wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening: Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may by faith behold the King in his beauty; who with you, O Father, and you, O Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen (Book of Common Prayer, p. 243).

The Reverend Yolanda Rolle


On behalf of The Right Reverend Mariann Edgar Budde and St. George's Wardens & Vestry, I am pleased to announce that The Rev. Yolanda Rolle will join the St. George's staff as the Associate Priest for Spiritual Formation and Collaboration. The Rev. Rolle will be half time with St. George's while continuing her position as the Anglican Chaplain at Howard University half time. She will make her home here at St. George's sharing an office with The Rev. Jenkins and building a parish home for the Episcopal students at Howard. The integration of the Chaplain at Howard along with the students brings with it old connections and future possibilities. The Rev. Rolle begins with St. George's on September 1, 2020. The Holy Spirit is moving about in St. George's!

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.
