Welcome to St. George’s Episcopal Church, located in the heart of the Historic Stockade district of Schenectady, New York, founded in 1735.
While proud of our heritage, we are an active place of Christian community. Our worship is traditional in the best sense of that word–being beautiful, ancient, and reverent–but we are also a vibrant and contemporary parish trying to live lives of meaning and joy in the modern world.
Whoever you are, or wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to worship and serve beside us, God our Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
Solemn Choral Rite I Mass in the church 10:00 a.m. Sundays
Morning Prayer Tuesday & Thursday at 8:30 a.m.
Evening Prayer Tuesday & Thursday at 5:00 p.m.
Livestream Sunday Holy Eucharist on YouTube at 10:00 a.m.
The New Testament teaches us that as Christians we are members of one body. All of us together are part of the body of Christ and no part can say to another, “I have no need of you” (1 Corinthians 12:21). At Saint George’s, we seek to honor this sacred and mystical reality. To that end, we aspire to be a place where all people can belong regardless of their economic status, political persuasion, racial heritage, sexual orientation, or gender identity. No matter who you are, we believe that God loves you and that Jesus Christ is your savior. We pray that you too will share with us in the joy of the Gospel and Life in Christ.
A Prayer for St. George’s
Thanks be to Thee, O God, What hast given us
Minds that think
Hearts that love
And hands that welcome.
Inspire us to work with Thee
That we may be responsible for Thy gifts.
We praise Thee for our homes,
Our friends and our Holy Church,
Bless St. George’s in this
Two Hundred and Eighty-Sixth year
And in all Her endeavors for
The propagation of the Faith
And for the salvation of souls.
Through Jesus Christ our Savior and our King.
