     Welcome to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church of Vicksburg, Mississippi

     We are the oldest Antiochian Orthodox Church in Mississippi, having been established in 1906.  Worldwide, the Orthodox Church is the second largest of all Christian denominations, with over 300 million followers.  Our faith can be traced back to its beginnings during the days of Christ, and has remained unchanged throughout history.  Our parish consists of various ethnic backgrounds and a considerable number of our members are converts to Orthodoxy.  We are a small, warm church community of dedicated Christians, made up of people who care for each other and enjoy working alongside each other on various activities throughout the year.

     We invite you to explore St. George through this web site and, more importantly, by actually visiting Divine Liturgy and other services to discover the Faith once delivered by Christ and His Apostles.  Come to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, where we will always welcome you.
