Dear Faithful in Christ,
A Blessed Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ!
I pray that you are well.
Our Parish Council Members, along with our Reopening Committee, have been working diligently in putting into place Policies and Procedures for the phased reopening of our church for worship. As we have been receiving updated directives from His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH and His Grace Bishop THOMAS, as well as the Civil Authorities, the protocols for reopening are updating frequently. Once the directives are complete, they will be sent to you via email or US mail prior to the targeted reopening date of The Feast of Pentecost, Sunday, June 7. Once you receive the directives, we respectfully ask that you become familiar with them and practice them with diligence for the well-being of you, your family members, and your fellow parishioners.
For this coming Sunday, May 31, the members of the Parish Council plan to attend the Divine Liturgy to make sure that they, as parish leaders, are familiar with the protocols in place. I contacted Bishop THOMAS today and he gave his permission for a maximum of 25 people, including clergy and chanters, to gather this Sunday for the Divine Liturgy. I will also inform you of any liturgical services to be celebrated during weekdays and will post the information on our parish website.
May Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who Ascended in Glory for Our Salvation, bless you and your beloved families.
"Proclaiming and celebrating the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ as the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church"
Welcome to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church of Bridgeville, Pennsylvania!
We are a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America: His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH, Primate; His Grace Bishop THOMAS, Bishop of the Diocese of Charleston, Oakland 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 where the present facility is located and initiated construction of a new church in 1947. It was completed and dedicated in 1950.
Years later, the residential house next door was purchased and now serves as the Educational Center for our Church School. Today, our church has grown to 125 families with a choir who sings in the traditional a capella style of singing, characteristic of Orthodox Christian worship.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. or access our website option "About Orthodoxy."
