The Brotherhood of Saint Andrew, Pohick Chapter, will sponsor a breakfast following a commemorative service celebrating the birthday of George Washington. The Service and Breakfast will be held on Monday, February 18, 2019. The Service will start at 8:00 a.m. and will follow an Order for Morning Prayer taken from the 1662 English Book of Common Prayer. This is the service Washington followed in his Sunday worship at Pohick, with two modifications: music is added and the prayers for the Monarch and Royal family are omitted. Following the Service there will be a breakfast hosted by the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, with a guest speaker. This year Dr. Kevin Butterfield, Executive Director of the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon will speak on: “George Washington and the Bill of Rights.” The Docent Guild will be conducting tours of Historic Pohick Church following the breakfast.
The cost of the Breakfast is $10. This has been a popular event in the past. Call the Church Office (703) 339-6572 or Fred Crawford (703) 994-5236 for more information about tickets. We look forward to a large turnout, so get your tickets early.
