Join Our
Year-long
Celebration

As the first established church in St. Catharines, St. George’s is an integral part of our city’s history.   In 2017, join with us in celebrating our 225th Anniversary.  This has been a spiritual home for generations of people finding strength and peace through prayer and fellowship, growing in their relationship with God, and generously serving the needs of our community.

Wedding Weekend
May 13, 2017

Open to everyone who was married in St. George’s, as well as current parishioners.  Couples can reserve a spot at 11am, 1pm or 3pm to renew their vows as we celebrate the role St. George’s has played in forming so many marriages and families over the generations.  Each ceremony is followed by a cake reception in our Lounge.  Registration fee of $50 goes to our Anniversary Project. Contact the church early to reserve your spot.

Anniversary Project

To honour St. George’s legacy of faith and service, we want to do something for the future of our church as well as something to reach out to those in need.  Our goal is to raise $70,000 for the refurbishment of our historic pipe organ, as well as to provide clean water for a home in the First Nations’ community of Pikangikum, Ontario.  A 225th memorial plaque will be erected to commemorate memorial donations to our project.
