Ministries of our Parish
The vision statement of St. George Church states that "As Orthodox Christians, we are dedicated to the spiritual and temporal welfare of our parish. We provide spiritual and educational services aimed at enriching the life of each member. We assure the wellbeing and future growth and development of the parish through an effective administrative and institutional structure. As followers of Christ we are responsible for and accountable to one another. In imitation of Christ we reach out to and respond to the needs of the broader community". To help accomplish the lofty goals of our vision statement we rely on the ministry provided by several parish organizations. Our parish organizations respond to a wide range of needs in our parish and in the broader community. Our organizations take into consideration the diverse population we minister to and develop programs accordingly. All parishioners are encouraged to support and be involved in one or more of these special ministries.
