Job's Tears

The Arts Council of Calvert County's Calvert Barn Quilt Trail installed the 22nd square on the Trail on June 15, 2022 at Christ Church, 3100 Broomes Island Rd., Port Republic, MD 20676.

Christ Church celebrated its 350th Anniversary on June 5, 2022 as the oldest continually worshipping congregation in Calvert County. The Church was one of the original 30 Anglican Parishes in the Province of Maryland, and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975.

Father Christopher Garcia and members of the Vestry chose "Job's Tears," a traditional Biblical quilt pattern for their square. It sits beside the Jousting Field, where Ring Jousting, Maryland's Individual Official State Sport, is celebrated annually at their Jousting Tournament and Bazaar.


Many thanks to Patti Wahl, pictured left, Rev. Christopher Garcia and the members of the Vestry, and the intrepid installation crew on the right, Sue Mills, William Sells, Jamie King and Traci Warnick King, for getting this one on the Trail!
