Holy Communion in the Body and Blood of Christ is only for members of the Orthodox Church who have prepared themselves by prayer, fasting, and periodic Confession. Everyone, however, is invited to partake of the blessed bread which will be offered at the end of the service and which may also be offered to you by one of your neighbors at Communion time as a sign of hospitality and blessing.

 

Saturday Vespers starts at 6pm.

The service of vespers is the beginning of the liturgical day. The word comes from the Greek "hespera" meaning "evening." The service is chanted in Byzantine tones and includes the beautiful hymns, "O Gladsome Light," and the "Song of Saint Simeon." All are welcome.




 

Sunday Services, Orthros and Divine Liturgy. This is a combined service.

Orthros (same as Matins Service) is our Sunday morning service that begins at 8:50am. The meaning of Orthros is "daybreak." The Gospel readings, and the liturgical spirit of Orthros reflects the joy of the Resurrection of Christ. Following the Othros service, the Divine Liturgy begins at 10am.





Who We Are


Our parish belongs to the Christian church founded in Antioch, in the Roman province of Syria, by the Apostles Peter and Paul. As related in the book of Acts (Acts 11:26), it was there that believers in Christ were first called "Christians." In the centuries following, the Church of Antioch became one of the major patriarchates of the Orthodox Christian Church, serving the areas of Lebanon, Syria and much of the Middle East.

This makes Saint George parish a remarkable place. The parish was founded in 1930 to serve the Arabic speaking community.  This was incredible because it was started in the midst of the Great Depression.  With faith and determination, Saint George grew to what it is today.  Such a place might ordinarily remain an insulated ethnic enclave. Yet, due largely to incredible big hearts and the compelling hospitality of the Arabic-speaking community, the church became a home for many English- speaking inquirers looking for the ancient faith.

Our parish continues to grow with a cultural mixture of our parishioners.  You will experience  the hymns and readings of the Divine Liturgy both in Arabic and English that will give you a sense of being "One in essence with God."
