St. George's will host a community yard sale in the churchyard. The different ministries at St. George's are going through all of their items to see what they need to keep and what can go in the yard sale. We also invite our surrounding neighborhood neighbors to rent a table and sell their items.

Volunteer: We need your help. Gayle Shuford has agreed to help along with our part time sexton Steven. If you would like to help please contact the Rev. Jenkins at 202-985-9267 or email

Haiti's Holy Trinity Music School


The Reverend David Cesar, priest, violist, Director of Haiti’s Holy Trinity Music School, and Conductor of the Holy Trinity Philharmonic Orchestra, died on June 10th. He was a primary coordinator of Holy Trinity’s performance visits to the United States. Three times they stayed and performed here at St. George’s. Although his funeral has taken place, his life will be celebrated at a memorial service at St. John’s Church in Maryland on September 5th. More details closer to that date will follow.


Special Donation


We have supported The Holy Trinity Music School with a collection the three times they have stayed with and performed for us at St. George's. If you would like to make a special donation to Holy Trinity Music School at this time in the life of the school, please send your donations to St. George's clearly marked for "Holy Trinity" and St. George's will collectively make a donation.

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.
