St. George Greek Orthodox Church - Neshannock Twnp PA

Text Coming Soon!


A small group of Greek immigrants founded a small Orthodox congregation on the South Side in 1917. In early 1918 they occupied an old church on Howard Way which later became known as the St. George Greek Orthodox Church. In August 1929 they took possession of the former Grace Methodist Church (shown above) on East Reynolds Street. After remodeling this building they moved in and held their first service in early October 1929. (c1980)


In the 1960’s, after decades of growth, they began efforts to build a new building. Property was purchased along West Englewood Avenue in 1968 while fundraising efforts got underway. The new church (shown above), on which work commenced in March 1978, was formally dedicated on Sunday, May 20, 1979. (May 2014) Full Size

    I’ve been tracing my family history and have made good progress recently and it has brought my search to New Castle. My grandfather lives there for years from about the time the church was bought in 1917 for about the best decade and possibly even since 1912. Do you many of the original Greek families? What brought the Greeks to New Castle PA?

    Hope to hear back
