“O foremost in the ranks of Apostles, and teachers of the world, Peter and Paul, intercede with the Master of all to grant peace unto the world, and to our souls the Great Mercy.” (APOLYTIKION OF SS. PETER AND PAUL IN TONE FOUR)
Dear members of the vineyard of the Lord at St. George parish,

We are resuming baptisms and weddings, please call Father for more information and to schedule an appointment. Father is ready to visit your family or your elderly family members and bring them communion, he is ready to bless your home too, just call him and schedule an appointment.
We are blessed to be members of this ancient Patriarchate of Antioch founded by the Apostles Peter and Paul. The Church is build on the confession of Faith of St. Peter: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Our Patriarchate have kept the Faith of the Apostles for 2100 years, let us pass over the Apostles Faith to our children of St. George, so that they can preserve it and hand it over to their own children.
We believe by being faithful to Christ and the Orthodox Faith our church of St. George will continue to be strong and united and nothing will harm it because our Lord Jesus promised: “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. Amen.
