St. George Emergency Needs Program
Charity really means “love” or by extension, an act prompted by love. Christ practiced charity and bids us to follow His example. This group of volunteers works in conjunction with our parish clergy to respond to the emergency needs of individuals and families, as well as communities victimized by tragedy here and abroad. St. George parish has a Good Samaritan fund for emergency and humanitarian needs.
Fundraising to Benefit our Brothers and Sisters in Kosovo and Metohija and SAFKOS (Serbian American Foundation for Kosovo and Metohija)
St. George parish in 2019 held two fundraising activities raising close to (as of Dec. 2019) $25,000.00 (our goal is 55K) to benefit our brothers and sisters in Kosovo and Metohija. For more information about SAFKOS, please, contact Djordje Popovic at 323-318-4606 or email@example.com.
Hospitality to the Homeless
In following the Biblical parable of the sheep and goats, the duty of the church and each member is to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, take in the stranger, clothe the naked, comfort the sick, and visit those in prison. The Good Samaritan Ministry serves also to satisfy the most fundamental need of all—the spiritual hunger for God, by feeding the body and feeding the soul of the homeless and needy.
Our parish annually helps at the local FOCUS (Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve) team in their outreach and feeding homeless population at God’s Extended Hand on third Wednesday of each month (address: 1625 Island Ave., San Diego, CA).
We invite you to consider participating in one or more of our Parish Ministries. For more information on any of these ministries, please contact our parish office.
