Join our parish community for a fun morning walk or run in Newtowne Neck State Park to support the preservation of Newtowne Manor House, part of the St. Francis Xavier Church/Newtowne Manor House Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places and one of the historic buildings listed as an "Endangered Maryland" site. Open to all ages and abilities, this fun run/walk will follow the scenic paved road and gravel path from St. Francis Xavier Church to the Potomac River waterfront in the park and then back to the church. Stroller and pet friendly, the full course is a 5k, with shorter courses marked along the way. Take time to browse the picturesque parish grounds, and enjoy a tour of St. Francis Xavier Church, c.1766, the oldest Catholic church in continuous use in English America.
