St. George the Great Martyr & Trophy Bearer Romanian Orthodox Church

We are a parish of The Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America, Orthodox Church in America, a part of the worldwide communion of Orthodox Churches, which profess the Apostolic Faith as articulated by the Ecumenical Councils of the One, undivided Church.  In addition, we fully participate in the Council of Orthodox Churches in Stark County.  Founded by Romanian immigrants, St. George strives to serve those of Romanian ancestry and families newly arrived from Romania along with converts and believers newly baptized in the Orthodox Faith.  The "language of the land" (English) is used primarily with limited use of the Romanian language in worship.
