St. George's Episcopal Church


First Sunday After The Epiphany ~ January 10, 2021

The Baptism of Our Lord



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

Associate Priest: The Rev Yolanda Rolle


For our Nation - Let us Pray 

God of ages, in your sight nations rise and fall and pass through times of peril. Now when our land is troubled, be near to judge and to save. May leaders be led by your wisdom; may they search for your will and see it clearly. In any ways we have turned from your way, help us to reverse them.. Give us your light and your truth to guide us; through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of this world, and our Savior. Amen.

- Right Reverend Mariann Edgar Budde



The Rev. Christopher Decatur


The Episcopal Church's newest Priest!


Epiphany Study

Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

In Preparation Please Read Mark 3:13 - Mark 6:13


Daily Reading List


This Epiphany season (January 1 - February 16) we will engage the Gospel of Mark. Mark is the shortest of the four canonical gospels. The first chapter opens with words from the prophet Isaiah: “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,” and indeed the gospel itself serves as a messenger for the life and ministry of Jesus. Written around 65-75 CE, Mark proclaims the good news that Jesus is the messiah and Son of God.


Alongside the gospel readings we will reflect on the commentaries found in A Journey with Mark (edited by Marek P. Zabriskie). The Book is available for $20 at St. George's. We have purchased 20 copies so please stop by and pick one up.


We welcome your presence every Wednesday evening in Epiphany at 7p.m. as we continue on this faith journey together.

Join your Transition Team for a look at St. George's Vision. The Transition Team promises a dedicated time the afternoon of January 17th as the parish gathers together to look forward.


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.


This month we explore our Vision looking toward a desired future state - which will also help us in defining our mission as we consider what it will take to get to this future vision. Please join us as this ongoing conversation needs all of you.

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.
