More About Us

We, the Church of St. George, are a local expression of the Orthodox Church, the original Christian Church founded by Jesus Christ upon His Holy Apostles.  For nearly 2,000 years, Orthodox Christians have lived and passed on the fullness of the spiritual Way of Life from generation to generation.  Our parish is Antiochian because we remain within the ancient jurisdiction of the Antioch of Syria, where the disciples of Jesus were first called "Christians" and where St. Paul launched his missionary effort throughout the Mediterranean world (Acts 11.19-26; 13.1-3).  Our parish is named after "St. George," a Roman soldier who was martyred in the year AD 303 after boldly confessing his faith in Jesus Christ.  We are a culturally diverse community of immigrants and American-born members with connections to various regions of the country and of the world.  Come and see the ancient Way that is always new in all times and in all places.
