St George the Great Martyr Orthodox ChurchSt. George the Great Martyr Church began as a Mission of the Orthodox Church in America in 1979. The present land it occupies was purchased in 1980, and the ground was broken for the Church building in 1981. The first services were held in the church in 1982, with the founding Rector, Fr. John Reeves officiating.

The Mission was granted Parish status by Archbishop Dmitri (of Blessed Memory) in 1994. Under Fr. John's leadership, the parish hall was completed in 1986. Since its inception, St. George Church has hosted two Diocesan Assemblies; one held in July 1985 and one in July 1995. Fr. John left for another assignment in early 1996, and Fr. Aaron Archer took over as Pastor in July of that same year. After Fr. Aaron's retirement in mid-2001, Fr. Antonio Perdomo was assigned to St. George's Parish in January of 2002 and served until his repose in April 2021. Fr. Antonio was a native Spanish speaker and had been able to reach out to those who speak Spanish on both sides of the border.  

St. George remains active offering Readers Services three times each week: Wednesday Readers Vespers, Saturday Readers Vespers, and Sunday Typica Service.  We are blessed to have the continued support from the Diocese of the South to offer servies with a visiting priest once per month.  Please review our Monthly Calendar for upcoming services with a priest.  

As the only Orthodox Church serving the lower Rio Grande Valley, St. George is blessed to minister to an ethnically and culturally diverse population, including members and visitors from Mexico, Canada, South America, Europe, and Asia.  All visitors and guests are welcome, especially families with children and Winter Texans who enjoy spending the winter months in the tropical climate of south Texas.

You are great among the Saints, O victorious George;

The deliverer of captives and defender of the poor,

A physician for the sick and companion of kings:

Intercede with Christ our God That He may save our souls!
