St. George the Great Martyr Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America, initially set up in 1979 as a mission. We are the only Orthodox parish in the entire Rio Grande Valley and we welcome Orthodox Christians of all backgrounds. Indeed, we are a very diverse community, of converts of several ethnic backgrounds (from Mexico, Canada, southern America, Asia, etc.) and also of "cradle Orthodox" who are Greeks, Palestinians, Romanians, Russians, Ukrainians, Turks, etc. Our services are mostly in English, although certain prayers are said in the many second languages of our parish members--Spanish, Greek, Arabic, Romanian, Slavonic, etc.

For more information about us (our history, our clergy, etc.) please see "our parish" header.
