Last Chance to Splash!
 
Come to the last splash of summer on Sunday, August 28 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Kenwood Country Club pool. All entering 5th through 12th graders are invited - along with your friends - to enjoy a couple hours of play in the water. Please sign-up in Founders' Hall or here no later than 8/24. There is no cost for this event. Bring your swimsuit and towel. 
 
There are two new ways for youth to engage in fun and formation during this program year and we are excited about what will happen! Register youth here for this year's programs and be sure to fill out the year-long permission form.

This is open to all youth in grades 5 through 12 and will be lead by both Sue and Jeff. It will include games, community building, and being formed in faith. Some of the formation program will be specifically directed toward preparing youth for Confirmation. The sacrament of Confirmation would be an option in the spring for those who have completed 8th grade or above. 
 
Collaboration Youth Events
Beginning with an event on September 18, we are joining with St. David's, St. Patrick's and Church of the Redeemer to bring together our youth for fun, service and learning. These events will happen once a month and take place on Sunday afternoons. The specifics of each event will be announced via the Trailblazer and through emails to parents and youth. 
 
Our first event will take place on Sunday, September 18 at the GW Summit Outdoor Challenge Course at GWU's Foxhall Rd. Campus from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost for this event is $15 per person. Participants will be required to sign a waiver form. Sign-up in Founders' Hall or here, no later than Thursday, September 15. Waiver forms and year-long permission forms have been sent to all parents, are available on the youth page of the web site, and are available in Founder's Hall.

New Creation: A musical story of Genesis and Easter

Posted 4:12 PM by

 

A musical play based on the biblical stories of Creation and Resurrection will be presented at both services on Sunday, July 24. Longtime St. Dunstan's members will remember the many plays performed by our Junior Choir some years ago. We're delighted to renew this tradition, with some former players (now in high school and college) and some new, younger players. 
 
Please come to see and hear their production of "New Creation" in place of the sermon on July 24.  Jessica Ault and Jeff MacKnight will be assisting.

Our High School graduates include:
 
Alex Berger 

Alex graduated from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School on June 1 after attending there for four years. Next year she will attend Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. At Wesleyan, Alex will swim for the cardinals and she plans on doing premed.

Tucker Hemphill

Tucker has been attending The Field School and will graduate from there on June 10. After visiting and assessing musical programs and communication programs at various schools, Tucker will be taking a gap year here in DC. He plans to work, develop his music, and do some traveling.
 
Those graduating with their bachelor degrees include:
 
Beau Gomez

Beau is the son of Tony Gomez and he graduated from the United States Naval Academy on May 27 with a Bachelor of Science. He was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. Beau will report to Quantico, Virginia in September to continue his officer training at The Basic School.

She'll be taking some time off for travel and relaxation before starting a job at Better Markets, a DC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to financial reform, to work as a records and information manager. In this job, she'll get to organize, develop strategies for knowledge management, answer reference and research questions, and develop policies for the organization.

 
Colin MacKnight

Colin just received his Masters of Music degree in organ performance from The Juilliard School in May. He will begin his Doctorate of Musical Arts as a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at Juilliard this fall. (And yes, he, not his father, selected this picture.)
