Stewardship 2019

Pledge Drive now underway

Click here to submit a stewardship pledge for 2019.

The 2019 Stewardship Campaign is underway. The goal is $1,550,000. In this Bicentennial year, we seek to establish a firm foundation from which to embark upon the numerous opportunities of the parish's third century of work, witness, mission, and ministry. At the same time, we have some challenges to overcome: a combination of legacy debt, a decline in the number of pledging households, and a lower-than-average pledge - the second lowest among our peer parishes in the Diocese of Washington. Christ Church, Georgetown, is a wonderfully vibrant, healthy parish, but, in order for the light of Christ to continue to burn brightly in this place, every member of the parish family must do what he or she can.

We extend sincere thanks to those who have already submitted a stewardship pledge! If you have not, we encourage you to do so before November 1. We ask all parishioners to prayerfully consider a pledge increase, raising Christ Church to the top of the list of good and Godly causes you support going forward.

Inscape Chamber Orchestra in Concert

Saturday, October 13, 4:00 p.m.

Founded in 2004 by artistic director Richard Scerbo, the Inscape Chamber Orchestra seeks to redefine the boundaries of classical music through riveting performances that reach across genres and generations, and transcend the confines of the traditional concert experience. With a flexible personnel roster and unique brand of programming, this critically acclaimed, GRAMMY nominated ensemble has quickly become one of the leading chamber orchestras in the Washington, DC, region and beyond. Inscape’s first Georgetown appearance of the 2018-2019 season will feature Johannes Brahms’ monumental Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115, and Arthur Bliss’ imaginative Oboe Quintet, Op. 44, as well as The Scherzo of the Fools, by noted American composer James D’Angelo. All proceeds from the free-will offering will benefit Georgetown Ministry Center, a longtime parish mission partner. A reception will follow.

 

Solemn Requiem Eucharist

Friday, November 2, 7:00 p.m.

This year, we will mark the Commemoration of All Faithful Departed, or All Souls’ Day, with a liturgical rendering of Gabriel Faure’s sublime Requiem Mass in D minor, featuring the Choir of Christ Church and chamber ensemble. The Reverend Dr. Lloyd A. “Tony” Lewis, retired Professor of New Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary, will serve as guest preacher. A reception in Keith Hall will follow. The liturgy will include a reading of the parish necrology.

Dates for Soup Kitchen & Grate Patrol

Fall/Winter 2018

On the third Sundays and Mondays of every month, Christ Church parishioners partner with the Salvation Army to provide hot, healthy meals to vulnerable individuals in multiple locations throughout Washington, DC. Teams of volunteers prepare food in the Parish Hall Kitchen from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Participants in the Grate Patrol then deliver and serve the food to those in need from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All ages and abilities are welcome! For more information or to volunteer, contact parishioner Liza Ballantine.
