Continuity During COVID-19


Christ Is Risen!
We are humbly asking for patience from our parishioners as we continue to follow the laws of our State and our Metropolitan Joseph’s directives. Our St. George community is here for you even though traditional church functions can no longer safely occur in person. 

 "
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  (Galatians 6:2) " 

Per the latest directive of Metropolitan Joseph and the CDC guidelines, the Parish Council and I have been hard at work planning for the phased return of our parishioners to their beloved St. George church. We fully discussed at our recent parish council meeting; dated May 19th, 2020 the plans of our phased return of our beloved parishioners to church in compliance with the Archdiocese directives.  

Until Further Notice…..The church remains Closed for public EXCEPT for the people who are conducting the service until further notice.

 The parish Council and I are creating resources and working on safety protocols to our St. George Community upon reopening the church.
When we will be ready to open the church safely will inform you.


These protocols will be published on our church website and Facebook ahead of time. Stay Tuned!  Please continue to pray with us virtually from home and watch the services Live-streamed on our Church Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/St-George-Antiochian-Orthodox-Church-153753080592/


We pray you and your family remain safe.

 With love in the Risen Lord,

Fr. Kamal and the Parish Council
