St. George Greek Orthodox Church is the beloved spiritual home of more that 450 Orthodox Christian families in the greater Delaware Valley area. Since 1943, our parish family has been known for its warm and welcoming outlook, vibrant minitries and rich liturgical life. The focal point of our life at St. George is the Divine Liturgy (literally, the “work of the people”). Within this timeless and truly beautiful setting, we commune with Christ, seek growth and healing, and give thanks for our many blessings. Our ongoing challenge is then to live “the Liturgy after the Liturgy”—to act upon the teachings of the Gospel and the transforming experience of worship. We are called, ultimately, to give hands and feet to our faith, bringing life and substance to what we profess.
These things we do together as a parish family. In fact, the ancient term for “church” is eklisia, the “gathering of the faithful.” So the true Church is not in mortar, stone or steel, but in the hearts of the people who gather in Christ’s name. And at St. George, the long-time parishioner, new member and spiritual “seeker” alike will be warmed by the spirit of hospitality and genuine friendship found among God’s people. On Sundays and throughout the week, our educational facility and parish hall teem with the sound of friends chatting, children playing and warm welcomes. Here, especially in these difficult times, we rejoice in our friendships and find support in the kind eyes of those who truly care.
In addition to our full docket of educational and fellowship programs for adults, St. George offers a renowned cycle of youth and young adult ministries. From our bustling Sunday and Greek School, to our energetic GOYA (teen group), to our basketball program and inspirational “Sights and Sounds,” our children develop a personal relationship with Christ while building healthy friendships that we hope and pray will last a lifetime.
We invite you to join us soon for Sunday worship. Guests and visitors are always welcome. Our clergy, as well as our team of ministry leaders, are more than happy to answer your questions and help you connect at St. George. Just contact our church office or approach Fr. Anastasios following the Divine Liturgy.
We look forward to welcoming your family to our St. George family!
