open house at st. george's episcopal this weekend

in addition to the alley block party listed below, here's another bloomingdale event taking place on saturday:

An Invitation To Our Neighbors!

You've put up with the construction noise and clutter at St. George's Church at 2nd and U Streets, NW. We’re glad it’s over and proud of what we’ve done. So we’d like to say "Thanks" and maybe brag a little by offering you food and refreshments. There will be jazz and contemporary music by our own James McKinney, and activities for the kids.

OPEN HOUSE Saturday, October 25, 11 AM to 3 PM

Take a brief tour of our newly renovated church. We bet you didn’t know we have a sanctuary wall filled with a bas-relief masterpiece by Lithuanian sculptor V. K. Jonynas (1907 – 1997), whose stained glass art decorates the National Shrine on Michigan Avenue, NE and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.


•We celebrate the unique gifts of each person in our community regardless of age, background, race, gender, marital status or sexual orientation.

•We welcome visitors and we invite to our Communion table any and all baptized Christians.

•We uphold the rights of all people and work hard to meet the needs of the community.

•We are proud of our long and close relationship with Howard University.
