Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Church

In the foothills of the Franklin Mountains sits one of the most majestic churches I have ever seen – Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Church.

From their webpage:

St. George is a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, in the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, under the supervision of His Eminence Metropolitan +Joseph and His Grace Bishop +BASIL Essey. The history of our parish began in October of 1947 when several local Orthodox Christians of Arabic descent sought to create a parish to meet the spiritual needs of the surrounding Arab Orthodox community. Our first church services were held at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, located at 915 North Florence Street, and dedicated for Orthodox worship in May of 1951. Eventually, we sought to build our own temple, and our current church building, located at 120 North Festival Drive, was dedicated to the Glory of God in October of 2003.

If you ever get a chance to visit this Church, you will find yourself at peace the moment you walk in the door.

This virtual tour simply does not do this amazing Church justice. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy the photos.
