St. Mary's Pavilion dedicated to Former Pastor Father George B. Reid.
12 noon on October 22, 2016 - To kick off the annual St. Mary's Ham and Turkey Dinner, pastor Father Kevin O'Reilly assembled the volunteers and announced the dedication of the pavilion to former pastor Father George Reid. Father Reid had served as Pastor at St. Mary's for over 30 years continuously and was well known in both the Washington and Baltimore Archdiocese. He had once served as a Navy Chaplain and always had a fondness for the military, police, firemen, and para-medics. Across from the Pavilion Father Reid had an outdoor altar dedicated to all of those serving to protect our country and keep our community safe and the patron saint for each of those services can be found on one of the four corners supporting the roof over the altar.
Father Reid's picture and a modest plaque recording the dedication to him, can be found on the western interior wall of the pavilion.
Pictured here around Father Reid's picture, are Father Kevin, long time parishioner Gertrude White (who has worshiped and worked with at least the past 6 pastors of St. Mary's), and Council 6901 Grand Knight David Horton.
