CAR meeting

For our C.A.R. meeting we went to a local Catholic church. On of our requirements this year is to learn about churches with stained glass and churches with ties to the American Revolution. 

Georgia did a great job talking to us about why churches have stained glass. She also showed us a piece that she did while on vacation this summer. Then Bekah talked about the Ketoctin Church and how Reverend John Marks (our society namesake) was instrumental in motivating the men in Loudoun County to join the Continental Army. It was because of Rev. Marks' sermons that Loudoun County supplied more men to fight in the American Revolution that any other county in Virginia.
After the presentations we took a tour of the church and looked at all of their stained glass.
