St. George Mission F_ND: the only thing missing is U! God bless you all!
The St. George Mission Fund was established by the St. George parish council in 2021. Its purpose is to provide our parish with a relatively stable and growing source of funds to fulfill and expand our ministries as an Orthodox Christian community. These are the religious, educational, cultural, and fellowship activities of our parish.
Mission Fund resources are not used for operational expenses of the church. These are maintained through your stewardship and other donations.
