Welcome to St. George’s Episcopal Church, an historic and vibrant Christian Community situated in the Stockade district of Schenectady, that was founded in 1735.
We are a Colonial parish that predates the American Revolution. While proud of our heritage, this is an active place of worship and Christian community. Our worship, in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, shares the love of Christ and the fullness of the Christian faith through word and deed.
Sunday services start with Morning Prayer at 9:30 a.m. followed is followed by Solemn Choral Rite I Mass at 10:00 a.m. Major Feasts which fall during the week are marked with a 7:00 p.m. celebration of Holy Eucharist with hymns.
Worship is also practiced virtually every day of the week. Please visit the Calendar page of this website and select the most current bulletin (near the top of the Calendar page) for a full listing of services for the coming week.
Here at Saint George’s we are committed to ongoing education and growth in the Christian faith for both young and old. Sunday School is offered for young children during our 10 a.m. Sunday Mass, upstairs in the Great Hall. Children are given an age appropriate instruction in the Holy Scriptures and join their families in the Church for the celebration of Holy Communion.
Bible Study is offered most Sundays at 9:00 a.m. (see the weekly bulletin on the Calendar page for details).We hope you will consider joining us for worship or at one of our many other events. St. George’s strives to be a place where all people, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey, feel welcome and experience the unconditional love of our savior Jesus Christ.
