St. George is a welcoming and safe place to grow and learn about the faith. We are founded directly upon Christ’s teachings. We follow his teachings and traditions that have been passed down by the Apostles and Holy Church Fathers throughout time. We believe that you don’t have to be perfect to be a Christian, because we believe in a loving and merciful God. What is important to us, is to give glory to God in everything that we do. The Orthodox Church has, for more than twenty centuries, spread and taught the message of salvation through strong faith and repentance to men, women, and children around the world. We welcome you to be a part of our evergrowing faith.

Our Parish

For 70 years, Saint George has provided a parish home for Orthodox Christians in the Tri-State area. We welcome all who seek to follow the Orthodox Way. Since the early years of our parish, we have been active in the Huntington community. In recent years, the people of St. George have supported a variety of organizations in Huntington as well as international ministries of our faith. Our parishioners serve many Huntington organizations. In addition, our annual Greek Festival gives us the opportunity to share our food, cultural, and spiritual heritage with the wonderful people of the tri-state area. Our parish falls under the jurisdiction of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Pittsburgh, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Our Priest

Our priest, Father Mark Elliott, grew up in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in 1989. He served parishes in Illinois, Mississippi, and Florida prior to being assigned to Saint George. Father Mark was assigned to Saint George in 2004. He is married to Presbytera Patti. The couple have two sons, Matthew and Andrew, both of whom live out of state. Father Mark not only preaches the faith, he lives it through his actions. He is active in many community activies including the Christ Is Savior Food Pantry in Wayne, WV (as pictured). If you’d like to get in touch with Father Mark, send him a message.
