Church serves up holiday spirit and supper

Prince Frederick, MD - For the 63rd straight year, one of Calvert County’s oldest churches gave the community an opportunity to savor the sanity and sacredness of the Christmas season. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Prince Frederick traditionally holds its Christmas bazaar the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving. Children and adults had a chance to visit with Santa Claus, peruse a roomful of attic treasures which were on sale and amazingly low prices and purchase beautiful handmade items crafted by talented parishioners.

Additionally, the church’s kitchen staff prepared meals for the hungry bazaar-goers—pan-fried crab cakes and ham, served with several side dishes plus dessert.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church dates back to 1841. The chapel captures the essence of a 19th-century Christian house of worship. Adding to the atmosphere is a pipe organ which the church obtained through a highly successful fundraising campaign several years ago. Susan Yoe, St. Paul’s organist and choir director, gave attendees a demonstration of her playing skills, rendering several Classical devotional compositions.

The annual Christmas Bazaar is St. Paul’s largest yearly fundraiser.
