We are an Orthodox Christian community located in Hesperia, California, serving the needs of all Orthodox Christians in the High Desert Area. St. George the Great Martyr Parish is a member of the Diocese of the West in the Orthodox Church in America under the omophorion of His Eminence BENJAMIN, Archibishop of San Francisco and the West
Our membership is multi-ethnic and many of us are converts to Orthodoxy. All our services are in English. We welcome all Orthodox Christians and those seeking to learn about our Orthodox faith.
Please keep in your hearts and prayers all Orthodox Christians here and throughout the world, especially those who are being persecuted and have died in the Middle East and around the world.
On Saturday October 28th many of our parish children, visitors, and adults met after Vespers to celebrate and relax together. The hall was beautifully decorated for fall, with bright lights and lanterns, getting us into the fall spirit. The costumes created by the children and their parents were wonderful! We had sightings of angels, much revered saints, super power figures, princesses, and even an egg carton with a very cute face. Time flew by so quickly, as we played games and had beautiful face and fun “handimals” (animals on fingers and hands) painted on all the children. Perhaps it was the tasty pizza that we loved most, or the bobbing for apples or the intense musical chairs game. Whatever it was, we are ALL looking forward to next year!!
