Ministry Groups of St. George Orthodox Church

Parish Choir
In addition to singing the responses to the liturgical services of the community, our choir participates in the Pan-Orthodox Choir of the Greater Bridgeport area. We are especially blessed in that two of the three coordinating directors of this latter are our own directors - Laura Chadwick and Karen Masek.

Altar Servers
Upon the attaining of his seventh birthday, each young man attending the parish's church school program is invited to serve. The program is under the authority of the priest with the supervision of the pastor's designee - the sacristan, Robert Lazar.

TEUTA Ladies Society
Meeting monthly, this organization provides for the social needs of the ladies of the parish and coordinates the yearly parish Bazaar. It also sponsors parish wide functions and luncheons to increase the community spirit. President of the Society is Sue Galich.

 

Parish Council

Coordinating with the priest, the Parish Council conducts the normal business activities of the parish.  Terms for Council members are 3 years.  The current Parish Council President is Jim Bowe.

Parish Fellowship
Weekly fellowship following the Sunday Liturgy is the manner by which we re-enforce community. Coordinating this for the parish is Laura Chadwick.

Charities
Throughout the year, St. George supports various Orthodox-based or local charities through weekly charity collections. Recent activities include:  Newtown CT shooting tragedy, assistance to an International Orthodox Christian Charity's support to Hurricane Sandy's victims, support to an orphanage in Albania, support to a parishioner, Greg Buzi II, for his mission trip to Guatemala, and on-going collection of food and serving meals at the Spooner House - a local homeless shelter.
