“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
Welcome to the webpage of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George! We are a community of Orthodox Christian believers who strive to live as chosen, as holy, as God’s own people. We are not perfect but seeking the perfection that is found in the Lord Jesus Christ – the Author and Finisher of our faith. Our Church is a place where the Gospel is preached and lived, where wounds are bound up, and where sin and failure receive mercy and compassion. Here, God meets us, face to face, and enfolds us in His love. Here we declare His wonderful deeds and walk out of darkness into His marvelous light. The Sacred Scripture, the Divine Liturgy and Holy Mysteries, and the many ministries of love that are at the heart of our Church, are our path to spiritual growth and healing. This spiritual calling is our primary mission and purpose. Everything comes from it and leads to it. We welcome you to this webpage and hope you too will encounter the living, loving God here. May His peace be yours!
Fr. Dimitrios J. Antokas
Dear Saint George family,
We write to update you on the latest Montgomery County COVID guidelines as of May 18, and how they affect the life of the Church at Saint George.
Please note that all of these guidelines are set by Montgomery County:
1. Seating capacity is increased from 50% to 75%.
2. We will maintain social distancing of six feet.
3. Face coverings are required for all parishioners.
Also, registration for Divine Liturgy attendance will be ended effective May 24.
On Friday, May 28, Montgomery County officials anticipate entering Phase 3 reopening, placing all religious facilities in the county under the same guidelines as those for the State of Maryland. Once they are formalized and announced, we will further update you regarding the impact of those new Phase 3 guidelines on Divine Liturgy and all other services and activities at Saint George.
