Dear Friends of St. George,
Our 1886 building is in need of your help. We are close to reaching our goal for the restoration of our parish of St. George. However, we are currently seeking donations for an additional $20,000 to complete this important work.
In the past year we have completed the majority of interior renovations. We have installed new flooring and wall paneling; entrance-way windows; lighting in the nave; millwork in the altar and narthex; refinished old doors and installed new ones; and repaired water damage to the ceiling. In totality, the church is much lighter and brighter!
Our goal is simple: to make the church welcoming both physically and spiritually.
Our next phase of repair is the long delayed restoration of the façade, main staircase, and sidewalk. New external lighting, railings and signage are part of this restoration. The crowning piece will be a new stained glass window of our patron, St. George. The exterior must be restored so that it communicates a welcoming and vibrant community.
The good news: Your dollar goes far at St. George! Our overhead is low and we have received the pro bono services of an architect in our community and several generous vendors.
Help support us in our goal as we rebuild the only Orthodox Church in Midtown Manhattan. Let us properly welcome our regular congregates and the many visitors to our wonderful city. If you’re interested in making a donation, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Father Sophronios Vomend and Andrew George, Parish Council President
