Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America
The Antiochian Women of St. George Church promote religious, humanitarian and social programs that contribute to the life and growth of our parish. Orthodox women have a special ministry in the life of a parish. Their role as messengers of the Gospel, educators and sustainers of the Faith has been central to Church growth since the time of the Apostles. Our Antiochian Women chapter sponsors a child in Lebanon through the Children's Relief Fund of the Archdiocese, assist with numerous charitable causes throughout the year, and minister to bereaved families by serving the Mercy Meal at funerals.
The Antiochian Women of St. George Church is the local chapter of the Archdiocesan organization known as Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America. Together with local chapters from our sister parishes in the Diocese of Worcester and New England, we participate in programs and activities designed to assist women in their ministry within the Church.
Every woman of the parish is invited and encouraged to participate in the programs of the Antiochian Women. Regular meetings are held once a month.
