This Parish of the Episcopal / Anglican Church was founded in 1930 as an Episcopal Church for African Americans. The current building was completed in 1969. Significant renovations, including installation of an elevator, were completed in 2008.
St. George's witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as expressed through the Anglican Tradition. We serve as a guiding light for our parishioners as well as the larger community. We strive in faith to be a parish of hope, love, and Christian fellowship based on the healing and forgiving grace of God. Each member is empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach out and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in both word and deed. We bid you welcome in the name of the Lord! The clergy are always available for instruction in the faith and practice of the Episcopal / Anglican Church and for counseling and spiritual direction.
