Welcome to St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral. St. George is a historical church located in downtown Philadelphia. Built by the famed architect John Haviland in 1821, the church was purchased by the Greek Orthodox Kathedrikos of St. George in 1922.
For the last 91 years, St. George has served its community by being a place of Orthodox worship, religious learning and Hellenic culture where traditions are proudly cherished. Over the years the church’s ministry has grown to include various orders and societies, educational and cultural programs, and a senior living facility—all developed to cultivate fellowship in an Orthodox Christian community. However, St. George Cathedral’s most important role is the role it has fulfilled since its founding: to be the body of Christ on earth and a beacon of salvation.
