Parish Membership: All baptized members of the Orthodox Church and inquirers are encouraged to become active members of Saint George Eucharistic community. Such members of the congregation regularly participate in the life and ministries of the parish and offer ongoing support to the parish ministries through the practice of good stewardship of their time, talents, and treasure.
Adult Orthodox Fellowship
This group of young adults ages 18-40, is a vibrant, active force in our St. George community. Quarterly meetings are held on the church grounds. These gatherings feature time for socializ¬ing, study of scripture and opportunities to discuss major issues of faith with Orthodox Christians of the same approximate age and life experience. The group is also committed to regular acts of philanthropy, church grounds upkeep, and regular participation in organizing all other events of the parish.
College Age Ministry
Keeping ties with college age young adults is among the most challenging, yet rewarding ministries of Saint George parish. The competition for their attention is fierce and too often peer pressure is attractive. This ministry keeps communication lines open and continuous, so that these young adults know that their parish does not forget them and that they are an integral part of our Church community. In this ministry, our parish works together with the San Diego Clergy Brotherhood and Orthodox Christian Fellowship.
Members of this elected body serve for the term of one year and are responsible for the daily workings of our St. George parish. Executive Board members must be examples to all parishioners by exhibiting model Christian behavior, respect for one another and the community, and always work with our priest to build the Body of Christ.
Women’s Auxiliary (KSS)
The Women’s Auxiliary (KSS) provides fellowship for the women of Saint George parish. They organize the regular Sunday luncheons and feast day banquets, always financially support the ministries of the Church, maintain the food pantry and supplies, and assist our clergy in ongoing parish ministries.
Senior Citizens Fellowship
Our Senior Citizen’s Club is at an early stage of its formation. It is their goal to keep active, meeting once a month for fellowship and lunch.
Ministry to the Elderly
We do not want our elderly parishioners to be forgotten. This ministry of compassion is a phone outreach ministry, particularly to those who are seniors who no longer drive and are unable to come in contact with their friends and church family. The calling assignments are done at home, at the volunteer’s convenience.
Stewardship and Gift Giving
This important committee works to bring awareness for stewardship, the many ways to give, and the joy of supporting our parish. Yearly programs include the annual stewardship luncheon and outreach programs.
Marriage and Family Enrichment
Our program for engaged and newly married couples is dedicated to growing in the Orthodox faith and particularly in the Sacrament of Marriage. Marriage enrichment classes offer insight into the biblical teaching on marriage as a Sacrament. The annual newlyweds’ dinner offers a time for sharing wedding and marriage experiences as well as develops closer parish friendships through fellowship.
Master Planning Committee-Property Renovation
This team of volunteers is responsible for the continued renovation of our buildings, maintenance, and repair of church property. They make regular inspections of parish properties and make recommendations to the board of any needed repairs or improvements. 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.
