“We want to encourage individuals and families to take a little time out of their day for a bit of Christmas spirit, by joining us for brunch and joyfully singing their hearts out; the more, the merrier!” said Charity Hakpon, the organizer, and the wife of one of the priests.
St. Andrew and St. Margaret of Scotland, Anglican Catholic Church, attracts its parishioners from a thirty mile radius throughout Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC. Jim Kingdon, another parishioner added “We may be from all over the area, but Del Ray is our parish’s home, so we would like to offer hospitality, during this festive season, to our local neighbors, merchants, and anyone else who happens to visit.“
