Welcome to Saint George
The year was 1914, little did anyone know what would become of some Greek immigrants who decided to form the Brotherhood of Saint George. Three short years later the State of Oklahoma granted “Saint George Greek Orthodox Church” a charter. Three years after that they purchased the Church’s first property located at N.W. 8th and Western. Since then her membership has expanded, now at least 50% are non-Greek, and her members contributed to the Oklahoma City community at large. In 1984, Saint George moved to her current location (145th N.W. & Pennsylvania).
We would like to welcome everyone to come and visit us. Our services are - Great Vespers at 6:00 p.m. every Saturday and Matins at 8:50 a.m. followed by the Divine Liturgy at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday. There is also a list of weekday services depending on the feast (please check our Weekly and Monthly Bulletins to see when they are scheduled).

What is a merciful heart? It is a heart on fire for the whole of creation, for humanity, for the birds, for the animals, for demons, and for all that exists. By the recollection of them the eyes of a merciful person pour forth years in abundance. By the strong and vehement mercy that grips such a person's heart, and by such great compassion, the heart is humbled and one cannot bear to hear or to see any injury or slight sorrow in any in creation. For this reason, such a person offers up tearful prayer continually even for irrational beasts, for the enemies of the truth, and for those who harm him, that they be protected and receive mercy...because of the great compassion that burns without measure in a heart that is in the likeness of God.
~ St. Issac the Syrian
