St. George's Episcopal Church, Schenectady, NY * St. George's Episcopal Church, Schenectady, NY

Our Mission


The mission of St. George’s is to bring all people to unity with God and each
other in Christ.

As we worship and serve Christ, we come to know Him and make Him known
through the Sacraments and through study of Holy Scripture.

Nurtured by scripture, tradition and reason; through prayer, and by the guidance of
the Holy Spirit, the people of St. George’s know the church of Jesus Christ to be local, universal and inclusive.

We accomplish this mission through prayer and worship, proclamation of the
Gospel and by promoting peace, justice and love.

The Mass is at the heart of our life and ministry as the chief act of praise and thanksgiving. We offer ourselves to Almighty God through devotion to the fullness of Catholic faith and the beauty of the Anglican tradition.

St. George’s teaches biblical and theological literacy, Christian charity, love and
acceptance of all people, and faithful stewardship of our parish and our community.

Our mission involves the ministry of all its members.

St. George’s is a vibrant and joyous Christian community of love and grace with a
historic past reaching back to colonial America, with a deep commitment to live the faith in new and exciting ways each day.

St. George’s is faithful to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of the Episcopal
Church, as well as its comprehensiveness, diversity and the middle way of tolerance and understanding.

All people are welcome to worship with us and encouraged to participate fully in the
ministry of this church.

St. George, the Dragon Slayer
