St. George's Oral History Project


Our Interviews are almost complete! This past Friday we were very fortunate to have The Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of Washington, come to St. George's for an interview as well as longtime and faithful parishioners Barbara Collins and Mary Ann Wilmer.


Your Oral History Project Team has been invited to share our experience with the next cohort of parishes who are included in this year's Congregational Leadership Initiative with the Episcopal Church Foundation. We will do that on October 11, 2021 in Baltimore at the kick off week. We hope our journey with this project resonates for others.


Many thank to all who are capturing St. George's history in the oral tradition!



‘My Name Is Pauli Murray’

Film Screening and Panel Discussion


Pauli Murray is of the most influential figures in American 20th century history. Ordained at the National Cathedral in 1977, Pauli Murray finished their professional life as an Episcopal priest.


“My Name Is Pauli Murray,” a documentary film, premiered online in January at the Sundance Film Festival and is now playing in select theaters. Washington National Cathedral will screen the documentary for an in-person audience on Sept. 30. It will stream on Amazon Prime beginning Oct. 1. It will also be shown online the same day through the Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York, followed by a discussion with West and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. The film, which incorporates excerpts from Murray’s diaries and memoirs, shows how she laid the groundwork for future achievements for racial and gender equality.

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.
