Welcome to Our Parish!
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 December 18th 2016, the community of St George gathered around the baptismal font before the Divine Liturgy to witness the baptism and chrismation of five newly-enlisted warriors of Christ. Anastasia, Daniel, Elizabeth, and Daniel and Elizabeth’s children Gregory and Mary united themselves to Christ and his Church and became part of St George the Great Martyr community.
Diocesan clergy and laity gathered together with his Eminence Archbishop Benjamin and His Grace Bishop Daniel during our 2016 Diocesan Assembly which took place October 11-14 at the Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral in Los Angeles, CA. Representing our church were Fr. Michael, Dn. George and Matushka Xenia.
Join us December 3, 2016 as we travel to Saint Baraba's Monastery in Santa Paula for their Feast Day celebration with Archbishop BENJAMIN.
