It is with great pleasure that we announce the Enthronement of His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph will take place during December 5th - 7th at Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Brooklyn, New York. The actual enthronement will take place in conjunction with Vespers on December 6th. We will be blessed by the presence of His Beatitude Patriarch John X who will preside during this weekend.

It is the time of year when many folks are travelling and are away from their homes. See that Saint George is on your "to do" list before you head out.

Don't forget, when there are significant events in your life, the Church is where you turn first. Remember also, your donations to Saint George at these times are most appropriate, whether in thanksgiving, for health, to mark a birthday or name day, or in memory of a loved one. Envelopes are available in the narthex and in the parish hall.
