Join your Transition Team for a look at St. George's Heritage. The Transition Team promises a short afternoon of great fun as the parish gathers together to discover our heritage through several team exercises.


Our clergy transition period is the Parish's time to discern who we are and who God is calling us to be while rekindling old connections and making new ones.


Join the Transition Team each month as we discover our heritage, values, mission, leadership, connections, and our future.


This month we explore our heritage and what St. George's means to us. Please join us as this ongoing conversation needs all of you.

Kindred Coaches


2020 is a year that will never be forgotten. Our community is suffering from two pandemics: COVID-19 and a nationwide awareness of racial injustice. These crises are taking a significant toll on our community physically, mentally, and spiritually. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of the Diocese of Maryland in collaboration with the Union of Black Episcopalians and Memorial Episcopal Church are launching a new ministry called Kindred Coaches. Kindred Coaches™ will encourage Courageous Conversations on an individual level and in group activities.  

The goals of this Health Equity ministry are to address healthcare disparities within communities of color. The program will offer training to individuals so that they may provide peer coaching to community members on the issues of health disparities in communities of color to include the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. 

In conjunction with Wellcoaches®, Inc., we are offering a 12-session training to become a Kindred Coach. This training will be provided over a six-week period (two 90-minute sessions per week) at no cost. After completion of the training, you will be registered with Kindred Coaches™ to actively work (voluntarily) with communities within the diocese.  

Contact us through our website at or at You can also reach out Carol Scott, M.D., Ms. Shannon McCullough, Karen Mercer, or Fr. Grey Maggiano.

Season of Prayer for Election


The Office of Government Relations of The Episcopal Church has coordinated resources to help us through this particularly election cycle. From an organized daily prayer series to a prayer hotline, individual prayers for elections, and a toolkit for voting faithfully, plus a host of other offerings, these resources reflect our deep commitment as a people of faith to “respect the dignity of every human being,” as our Baptismal Covenant reminds us, and participate fully in the democratic process of our nation. We encourage you to make use of these resources during these three weeks leading up to November 3rd and hold our nation and the electoral process in your prayers.

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.
