Welcome to St. George Greek Orthodox Church


"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

For over 100 years, St. George Greek Orthodox Church has served as a beacon of Christian light in a city that brought electricity to the world! And we invite everyone to "come and see" by attending our regular Sunday (9:30 AM) Divine Liturgy service.  

For Orthodox Christians, worship produces theology. So, by attending the services, we understand its meaning and significance. Come and read along with us as we pray, and come and hear the beautiful byzantine chants and hymns as we endeavor to grow closer to God.

Visit or join our ministry groups that teach Christian principles and explore the Orthodox faith. Please view the Church Ministry page under the About Us tab on the top left corner of this page.  

For more information about Orthodox Christianity, we invite you to contact the Parish Priest at (518) 393-0742.  

And please, join us this Sunday!
