Welcome to St. George of Bridgeville
Advent “Come Lord Jesus, Come“
Let the Stable Still Astonish

Let the stable still astonish:

Straw-dirt floor, dull eyes,

Dusty flanks of donkeys, oxen;

Crumbling, crooked walls;

No bed to carry that pain,

And then, the child,

Rag-wrapped, laid to cry

In a trough.


Who would have chosen this?

Who would have said: “Yes,

Let the God of all the heavens and earth

Be born here, in this place.”?


Who but the same God

Who stands in the darker, fouler rooms of our hearts

And says, “Yes, let the God

Of Heaven and Earth

Be born here----


      in this place.”

"Proclaiming and celebrating the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ as the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church" 

We are a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America: His Eminence Metropolitan SABA Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of All North America. Our Diocesan Bishop is His Grace Bishop THOMAS, Bishop of the Diocese of Oakland, Charleston and the Mid-Atlantic. Our parish is dedicated to the spreading of the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, through the Church He established - the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church - The Orthodox Christian Church.

Our community was formed in 1920 when the first immigrants from Syria, bringing with them their deep love and devotion to the Orthodox Faith, arrived in Bridgeville. A blacksmith shop was purchased and converted to a church, which served the Bridgeville community for approximately 25 years.  A small group of dedicated members funded the purchase of a small lot in a residential area on Dewey Ave. and initiated construction of a new church in 1947. It was completed and dedicated in 1950.

In 2010 we broke ground for our current church at 3230 Washington Pike, which is co-located with our cemetery, approximately 1 1/2 miles from our Dewey Ave. location . Construction was completed in 2017 and our first Divine Liturgy in our new church was celebrated Thanksgiving Day, 2017.  Our choir sings in the traditional a capella style of singing, characteristic of Orthodox Christian worship.  We have an active Church School Program and Adult Education series.

On Sundays we celebrate the Matins service at 9:30 a.m., and the Divine Liturgy at 10:30 a.m.  We invite you to explore the Orthodox Christian Faith and to join us in worship, proclaiming and celebrating the Ancient Christian Faith in our contemporary world.  For further information on the Orthodox Christian Church, please contact our pastor, Fr. Jason DelVitto @412.221.2277, email: or access our website option "About Orthodoxy."
