HISTORY OF OUR CHURCH
Saint George Greek Orthodox Church is the realization of a dream that originated in the hearts and minds of the earliest settlers of Hellenic extraction along the north Jersey shore. Today we celebrate 83 years of perseverance, toil and dedication to the teachings of Jesus Christ as a congregation in Asbury Park, NJ, and now in our new Church Home in Ocean Township, NJ.
For over twenty five years, a new Church Home was a dream and the members of our community were dedicated to making this dream a reality. A tract of land was purchased, and we broke ground in the summer of 2008, and on Sunday, April 1, 2012, our community was proud and humbled to celebrate the Thyranixia, the official opening of the doors, of our new House of Worship at
1033 West Park Avenue in Ocean Township, New Jersey. This momentous celebration officially opened the doors to our long awaited new Saint George Greek Orthodox Church and its surrounding campus which includes a Cultural Center, Administration Building and Education Center, and Athletic Center. For more info visit our Church website here: http://www.stgeorgeap.org
Our last Greek Festival was in 1998 at Palaia Park in Ocean Township, and we as a community are so grateful to have the grounds and means now to open our campus for all to enjoy!
St. George Church will proudly support the following local charity with a portion of the Festival proceeds:
The Foundation’s Mission
The Frances Foundation has a focused, devoted commitment to bring smiles to kids fighting cancer. The Foundation strives to alleviate a child’s pain and suffering with a special gift, a special gesture, or even a few special moments. The Foundation also provides financial assistance to impoverished families desperately needing help due to their child’s fight again cancer. The Foundation seeks to give compassionately to children and families dealing with extremely difficult physical and emotional challenges. In addition to direct aid to a child or family, The Foundation also supports research aimed to terminate childhood cancers. Helping kids is our passion.
