Thank you for visiting our website! And welcome to St. George Greek Orthodox Church of Palm Desert, California. Our parish was founded in 1978 by a small yet devoted group of Greek Orthodox communicants who, for many years, longed to establish a parish in the Palm Desert area. Their faithful mission was not only to create a place of worship—through which they could participate fully in the Sacramental Life of our Greek Orthodox Christian Faith—but also to bring a Greek Orthodox Christian presence to this spiritually fertile desert community nestled in the heart of Southern California’s Coachella Valley.

 

The seed of faith that was planted in 1978 has, by the grace of God, blossomed into a thriving and dynamic parish. We offer a variety of inspiring ministries: from our dedicated Choir and charitable Ladies Philoptochos Society, to our Orthodox Bible Studies and Sunday School classes, as well as other outreach ministries organized and run by our parishioners.

 

Sunday and weekday church services at St. George begin with the Orthos at 8:30 a.m., followed by the Divine Liturgy at 9:30 a.m. Visitors are always welcome. If you plan on moving to the beautiful desert cities area, come and join our parish, take part in our positive ministry to God’s glory and witness for yourself this “Miracle in the Desert!” May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ always bless you.

 

+Fr. Theodore Pantels, Parish Priest, Saint George Greek Orthodox Church
