Every Orthodox Christian has the
responsibility to join with, and be an active part of a local parish.
general terms, we are united to the Body of Christ and become members of
the holy Orthodox Church through Baptism and Christmation. We are
expected to: remain loyal to the Church, faithfully practice our Faith,
mature in Her teachings, share the Faith with others, and regularly
support Her existence. More specifically, we live and practice our
Orthodox Faith within a given community called a parish. Each
individual Orthodox Christian of at least eighteen years of age is to
declare his/her commitment to the Church and responsibility for its
support by becoming a member of the parish. At all times, every member
is expected to be in sacramental communion with only the Orthodox
Church, through at least annual Confession and Communion
in his/her “home parish.” And, in gratitude for God’s blessings, every
member is expected to be a faithful steward of the parish by freely, and
as generously as possible, offering his/her time, talents and treasures
to support of its life and mission.
Annual Parish Membership at St. George Cathedral is open to all Orthodox
Christians of at least 18 years of age. In the last few years, the
parish has been incorporating a
“pledge system” of giving with regard to
membership. This concept allows for a prayerful, serious commitment by
the individual to not only participate in the services, sacraments and
activities of the parish, but to financially support it by whatever
amount they feel they are able to offer in thanksgiving for the
blessings God bestows on them. Details can be discussed with the Dean at
any time, and the process of becoming a full member of the Cathedral
a simple one that will reward your heart, mind, and body. Of
course, your pledge is a private commitment between you, the priest, and
We pray that you,
your family, and others will find our doors always open to you, and that
our Church will become home to you as well. You are sincerely invited to
join us and become a full member of the Cathedral parish family. We
welcome you in the love of Our Lord.
