Welcome to St. George Greek Orthodox Church on Cape Cod!
I am pleased that you are visiting our site. There are about 3 million Orthodox in North America and approximately 200 million in the world, making Orthodoxy the second-largest Christian community. Being Greek is not a requirement to be Greek Orthodox, just as someone can be Roman Catholic without being Roman. Because only Greek was spoken for approximately the first 300 years in the Christian church, the original church was sometimes referred to as the Greek church.
It is the rule of the Orthodox Church to speak the language of the local people, therefore at Saint George we speak English and Greek. In recent years, as we have some Romanians, Russians, Ukranians, and Serbians among us, we use some church Slavonic to make people feel welcome to worship with us. Currently the largest American jurisdictions are the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, The Orthodox Church in America (Russian roots), and the Antiochian Archdiocese (Arabic roots). The liturgy is substantially the same in all, though there may be variation in language used and type of music. If you choose to visit our church and this is your first time, please let yourself be known to one of our parish council members who will be at the Pangari. In Christ's love, Rev. Father Panagiotis K. Giannakopoulos Protopresbyter

On Sunday, October 4th, His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios installed Fr. Timothy Curren as the Presiding Priest at the parish of St. George in Centerville, MA. In his remarks, His Eminence expressed his high regard for the parish and indicated to Fr. Timothy that the wonderful, God-fearing community would welcome him as a father, son, and even grandson. Additionally, His Eminence asked Fr. Timothy to keep himself immersed in Holy Scripture to faithfully guide his ministry at the parish. In turn, Fr. Timothy shared his excitement and gratitude for the assignment. He thanked His Eminence for his guidance and pristine pastoral example throughout his seven years of priesthood. In addition to the many parishioners that came to welcome Fr. Timothy, Fr. Panagiotis Giannakopoulos, former Presiding Priest of the St. George Church, and Fr. Harry Vulopas, joined His Eminence in prayerfully welcoming Fr. Timothy and his family to the community.
