The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America was founded in 1973 through the vision of Eminence Metropolitan Philip (Saliba) of Thrice-Blessed Memory. Today, it is an organization of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese and is led by His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph. Our purpose is to develop among the women a spirit of Christian leadership, awareness, and commitment; to foster a genuine expression of love and service through works of charity; and to install a sense of fellowship and a deeper understanding of our Holy Orthodox Faith. We are a "Sisterhood Serving Christ Through Serving Others."

The women of St. George meet monthly, either in person or through ZOOM, to organize and plan events as well as build a stronger fellowship and grow in the Faith through spiritual discussions with our priest and deacon. We are blessed to have dedicated and faithful clergy and women who love to serve the Church and the community through various activities. His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph once said, "When everyone left our Lord Jesus Christ alone on the cross, the women were there. Can you see how important the women are? You are the myrrhbearing women!" We welcome women from the ages of 19 to 99, and urge you to join us in our ministry, remembering that EVERY woman in the Antiochian Archdiocese is an " Antiochian Woman!‚Äč"
