St. George's 40th Anniversary Celebration

The Ruby Anniversary of St. George Greek Orthodox Church of New Port Richey, Florida will be celebrated throughout 2022.  As we celebrate this milestone of our community we will have several hallmark events, as well as many smaller commemorations throughout the year.  Not only will we look back on the successes and triumphs of the past 40 years, but more importantly we will look forward to the next 40 years of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
