Pumpkin, Potluck & Prayer

October 29 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We invite all families, individuals, couples, friends, to join us for this all-parish seasonal gathering.

The event will start with the carving and decorating of our Halloween pumpkins followed by prayer over a shared BBQ and potluck dinner. We will provide the BBQ and drinks, but please bring a dessert if your last name begins with A–M or a salad if your last name begins with N–Z. Bring your own pumpkin, and carving supplies if you have them. Please bring a friend too, so they can experience the welcoming Holy Comforter community.

There’ll be prizes for the scariest pumpkin and the most creative pumpkin!

Wear your favorite Halloween attire!

Please RSVP to Susan McGuire.

Need Pumpkins? You are invited to fetch a pumpkin or two from a mission effort by our neighbors at St. Thomas McLean (8991, Brook Rd, McLean 22102, located at the Junction of Lewinsville Road and Route 7). Their Great Pumpkins for Good Causes outreach receives a wide variety of pumpkins grown by the Navajo nation in New Mexico and all proceeds support the outreach efforts of SHARE, Falls Church McLean Children’s Center, and Second Story! Beginning Saturday, October 8, the Patch is open every day—10:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday; 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on Sundays.
