Alternatively, you can download and print this pledge card and return it to the Parish Office (5450 Massachusetts Avenue, Bethesda, 20816)Thank you for supporting your parish church during this extraordinary time!
Pre-Order Your Advent Wreath Kit!
Believe it or not, the beautiful, contemplative Season of Advent will be upon us in just 23 days!
Advent is the period of watching and waiting that the Church sets aside to prepare for the birth of Jesus. As part of that preparation, many Christians use Advent wreaths to help mark God's time and count down to Christmas. In the past St. Dunstan's has cherished the custom of gathering to make wreaths together.
While we can't do that in person this year, Patty will lead us in a parish- wide Advent Wreath Making social event via Zoom on Sunday, November 29, 2020 at 4:00 pm. You can pre-order your materials for this event by clicking this link: Advent Wreath Order Form. Wreath kits are $25 and will include: 1 straw wreath form, 4 candles, 4 candle holder stakes, ribbon, and greening pins. 
Please send all check payments to the St. Dunstan's parish office (5450 Massachusetts Avenue, 20816), or contact Kimberly Matthews at 202.360.0520 to pay by credit card. All orders and payments are due by Friday, November 20, 2020. Kits will be distributed on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 or will be available for pick-up from the church on Friday, November 27 between 12 and 3 p.m.
