About the Orthodox Church...

The Orthodox Church originated as the community of faith founded by Jesus Christ and the Apostles in the Holy Land and the Middle East. It is the second largest Christian confession in the world today, made up of a family of churches including "Greek Orthodox,” “Russian Orthodox,” “Antiochian Orthodox,” and many others. Orthodoxy is the other half of Christianity, until recent centuries found primarily in the East, and shares a different history than that which gave rise to the Roman Catholic-Protestant traditions in the West. The Orthodox Church is...

ONE - United in faith and practice throughout the world today and throughout 2,000 years of history.

HOLY - Sanctified by her head, Jesus Christ, calling all to share in His transformative grace and healing faith.

CATHOLIC - The fullness of the faith "which was once for all delivered to the saints." 

and APOSTOLIC - In direct and unique continuity with the early Church, possessing apostolic succession and having preserved the apostolic faith unchanged.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT REGARDING COVID-19

On March 17th, we received the following directives from Metropolitan Joseph, Primate of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America. The parish of Saint George is implenting these directives until further notice. May God grant you peace and preserve you in good health during this difficult time!

1. All parishes are instructed to cancel all non-liturgical, in-person activities including schools, business meetings, and social functions.

2. All liturgical services will be served with only clergy, servers, and chanters.

3. Churches should remain open during the week as much as possible for people to offer individual prayers and light candles.

4. Priests are instructed to limit services to only the Akathist and Sunday Orthros & Divine Liturgy as well as the liturgy for the Annunciation on March 25th as outlined by the Department of Liturgics.

5. All parishes are encouraged to take advantage of the technology at our disposal to livestream the divine services and offer education to the faithful.

6. The Archdiocese will provide service texts for the faithful to pray at home during this time of social distancing. Please see the Liturgics section of the Archdiocesan website for the new offerings.

7. All measures to ensure the cleaning and sanitizing of the church must continue even though we are limiting our numbers of faithful in attendance.

8. Funerals must be limited to the guidelines set by our civil authorities.

9. Baptisms should be postponed except for cases of emergency.

10. Finally, we pray that by implementing these measures in coordination with our civil authorities, we can hasten the time when it will be safe to return to a full liturgical life in church, and, God willing, save lives at the same time!
